Abuja - The Delta State House of Assembly
Speaker, Monday Igbuya, has dismissed as absurd suggestions he is working
against Delta Central District Senator, Ighoyota Amori.
He said detractors engineered such speculation to cause
divisions among him, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa and the people of the Urhobo
Contrary to reports he was working against Amori, Igbuya
pledged his allegiance.
“I’ll continue to support my leader, Chief Ighoyota
Amori,” he insisted.

Igbuya said the speculation he was disloyal to Amori
emanated from his recent statement on the chairmanship of the People’s
Democratic Party’s (PDP’s) Delta State Chapter.
Igbuya was quoted as saying he would not endorse Amori’s
reported bid for the position.
“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 was quoted on Monday.
However, speaking to journalists in Asaba, Igbuya praised
Amori for his efforts at providing “strong leadership” in Delta Central.
“I think it is absurd for anybody to suggest
that I am fighting my leader, Chief Ighoyota Amori.”
