Speaker alleges ploy to divide Delta State PDP

23 March 2016, 14:07Emeka Okonkwo

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 nation.

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, who represents Sapele constituency, said he was loyal to Amori.

“I will forever be grateful to him for his immense contributions to the success of my political career,” he said.

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.”
