The governor of Delta State has been advised to think of the suffering ex-governor James Ibori is passing through in jail and allow democracy to takes its course.


Assistant Publicity Secretary of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Comrade Philip Onakpoma gave the advise in a public function held recently.


He urged Governor Uduaghan to reminisce on the ordeal of James Ibori in the UK prison and do the needful by allowing the Delta State Independent Electoral Commission (DSIEC) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to carry out a free and fair local government election scheduled to hold in October and the general election of 2015 to allow Deltans to choose their leaders.



Should the governor fail to heed the advise, Mr. Onoakpoma cautioned “you will swallow bitter pill instead of honey if you do not allow democracy to flow on its course”.


He expressed pity on sycophants who encourage government on the wrong path because of personal interest and warned that they would not be there to share the consequences of wrong doing when the law takes its course.


Philip Onakpoma particularly wants the governor to steer clear from the course of imposition of candidate on Deltans, a malaise he described as worse than when a man dies without an offspring to inherit his properties.


“I know this is a bitter truth and it is had to swallow. The DSIEC chairman, Mr. Moses Ogbe at this time must learn to leap alone and write his name in the sand of time and help Uduaghan to finish strong if the election is conducted in a free and fair manner” Onakpoma said.
