Why former and current Delta State governors just visited Ibori

Prominent Delta State indigenes and politicians have continued to pay homage to former governor Chief James Onanafe Ibori.

Ibori’s home in Oghara,  Ethiope East LGA has turned into some sort of tourist center since his return from London.

Latest among the visitors yesterday were the Delta State Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, and his predecessor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan.

Uduaghan arrived the Ibori villa in Oghara at about 3:30 pm and was later joined by Governor Okowa at about 4:15 pm.

However, journalists were restricted from gaining access to the former governor’s residence.

This left them guessing why Uduaghan and Okowa would visit at the same time.

A reliable source said: “I was there and I can boldly tell you that there was no special meeting held for the governor and Uduaghan.

“They were all there for private visits.”

As at the time of filing this report at about 6 pm, the governor’s entourage was still at Oghara.

Other callers at Oghara yesterday were the Delta State deputy governor, Kingsley Otuaro, Senator James Manager, former deputy governor to Ibori, Benjamin Elue and Professor Godini Darah.
