Sapele leaders caution Anirah over provocation

07 January 2016, 09:53Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja – Some politicians in Sapele Constituency in the Delta State have warned the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in the last House of Assembly Election, Felix Anirah, against making provocative statements.

Following a meeting in Elume, the leaders accused Anirah of engaging in a fruitless campaign against Delta State House of Assembly Speaker, Monday Igbuya.

“Igbuya is devoting his energies and resources to solving problems in Delta State. He is working so hard to make life meaningful to the good people of Sapele,” the leaders said through Chairman of Politicians and Political Office Holders in Sapele (PPOHIS), Oghene -Ochuko Abeke.

They dismissed allegation by Anirah the election of Igbuya in the said election was improper.

“If the election is repeated tomorrow, Anirah would get fewer votes than what he got in the April 11 election,” said Abeke.

They noted that there was no basis for out-of-court settlement.

“The outcome of the two judgments only reflected the resounding victory of Igbuya at the polls. There was a little hope around Anirah’s candidacy.

Indeed, he was rejected by the people because of his abysmal performance as chairman of Sapele Local Government” the statement said.

He added, “Igbuya met more voters, knocked on more doors and campaigned harder. The people voted for Igbuya. He is doing well as Speaker of the Sixth Assembly” the leaders said.

The leaders advised the speaker to disregard the recent criticism of him by Anirah.

“Felix Anirah is a clueless, visionless, reckless and feckless politician,” said Abeke.

On behalf of the leaders, he also thanked the people for the confidence reposed on Igbuya.

“We thank the good and peace loving people of Sapele who have refused to be hoodwinked by the tissues of lies and propaganda being woven and dished out by Anirah.”
