Former Governor of Delta State, Chief James Onanefe Ibori has said that disgrace awaits those conspiring and ganging up to disgrace him in 2023 just because he is now a former Governor.
Focus Naija can report that he made this known over the weekend while declaring his total support and endorsing the senatorial aspiration of Chief Ighoyota Amori for Delta Central at the declaration rally held at the country home of the aspirant in Mosogar, Ethiope West LGA.
According to the ex-Governor, known to call the shots in Delta PDP, Amori’s bid to become Delta Central Senator is personal to him as a stakeholder in PDP and Urhobo Nation.
Saying that he cannot be pleading and be refused, he urged those that are yet to be in support of the ambition to have a rethink as Amori has the contacts and knows how to properly use it to perform beyond expectations.
“I am behind and I will support Senator Ighoyota Amori every step on the way, and anybody, anyone conspiring, anybody that thinks that because I am now a former governor they want to conspire to disgrace me, God will disgrace all of them.
“This is my senatorial district, I am a stakeholder in this party (PDP) and I am a stakeholder in Urhobo, this is my place of birth, I am with Senator Amori all the way.
“I want to assure that if you give Senator Amori your support, he will not disappoint you, I want to guarantee you that Senator Amori will perform beyond expectation because we know his capacity, we know his reach, he has contact and knows how to use it and that seat befits Amori, so let support him.
“Please, join hands with me. Support him to go to the senate. I know that some of you from your various houses will probably be thinking, please have a rethink, I am begging of you.
“Ibori is begging you and you are refusing? Please, support me to send Senator Ighoyota Amori to the Senate.
“I want to say it again that this senatorial race, this Senator Amori”s bid, is my bid. Please, join hands with me and join hands with Senator Amori to the Senate”, he said.
