Delta speaker refutes 'mischievous' reports he intends to contest polls

21 March 2016, 12:00

Abuja - Delta House of Assembly Speaker, Monday Igbuya, has refuted media reports he intends to contest the governorship election in 2023.

Speaking in Asaba, he described such reports as “mischief”.

“I did not say I will be governor in 2023. I don’t have the finance,”
Igbuya said.

He also said contrary to speculation, Senator Ighoyota Amori would not contest the state’s Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chairmanship election.

“Contesting as chairman will mean taking a step backward. He is bigger than that,” Igbuya said.

“His mates are national officers of the party. He should think about becoming a national officer of the party. If he decides to contest, I will not support him,” Igbuya said.

He urged Deltans at home and abroad to treat the rumours as “baseless” and “false.”

Igbuya meanwhile praised Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for his proper management of state funds and provision of meaningful developmental projects across the state.

He said his endorsement of Okowa for the next governorship election was in line with the principles of equity, justice and fairness.

Thus, he said, Okowa should be given the opportunity to contest for re-election in 2019.

He called on Urhobo leaders at home and abroad to close ranks and work in one accord to reposition Delta for greater political relevance.

“I am committed to the interest of the Urhobo nation,” Igbuya added.
