Group adopts Ibori’s political philosophy
By Jon Egie
The Team Ibori for Okowa has adopted the political philosophy of former Delta State governor, Chief James Ibori, as its driving principle.
Engr Ejovi Adasen, Chairman of the committee set up to review the aims, goals, core values and vision of the group made the disclosure while presenting his report to the State Coordinator, Hon Edmond Guanah, Sunday, June 11, during a meeting session in Ughelli.
Engr Adasen said it was the resolve of the Committee for the group to key into the political faith of James Ibori who gave sense of belonging to the three senatorial districts on the tripod of equity, justice and fairness.
The Committee recommended that the group should embark on public sensitization on the challenges and prospects of the Okowa administration and ensure its success along the line of the Ibori political philosophy so as to ease Okowa’s re-election in 2019.
Engr Adasen said the scope of operation of the group cut across the 25 LGAs within which the three senatorial districts are strategic for mobilization of the operational structure: national, state, local government and ward working committees.
The report was accepted by the State Coordinator who assured that any grey area would be ratified by the next meeting.
At the meeting, a Constitution Drafting Committee (CDC) was mandated to draft the constitution of the group for ease of business. Members of the CDC include: Hon Uwhawha Joseph, Hon Patrick Onokpasa and Hon Abiouwuwe Oniyei.
Meanwhile, the governor of Delta State in clear recognition of the group has appointed one of the members, Mr Onoriode Efekemo as his Special Assistant on youth mobilization.
Reacting to the appointment, the State Coordinator of the group, Hon Edmond Guanah expressed gratitude to the governor for the gesture and assured members of more goodies down the road.
“I thank Gov Okowa on behalf of Team Ibori for Okowa for the appointment and must also commend him for the good work he is doing across the State. We are proud of you” Guanah said.
