Don’t link Okowa with thuggery, Onuesoke tells APC

Delta State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Sunny Onuesoke has declared that nobody should link Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa with activities of political thuggery as being peddled by members of the All Progressive Congress (APC).


Onuesoke who was reacting to allegations levelled against  Okowa which include   hiring and training  of thugs for Edo State  PDP towards the upcoming Edo State governorship election  said it was disappointing that APC is making irresponsible, unsubstantiated and wild allegations against the gentle, peace-loving and very educated Governor of Delta state.

Speaking to journalists in Benin-City,Edo State during a courtesy call on the Edo State PDP Secretariat,  he  argued that   there was no truth in the  different allegations levelled against Okowa by APC loyalists,  with respect to the coming Edo State Governorship election. He added that the action of APC actually tells more of the apprehension APC and Governor Adams Oshiomole are feeling as their inevitable rejection and defeat stare them in their faces.

“APC should deliver on their campaign promises and stop attacking and making unfounded insinuations  against PDP governors. Already the economy is  in a bad shape with  high  inflation rate, unemployment, crimes and other vices. All they are interested in is to attack Okowa who is a peace-loving and hard-working governor”, he fumed.

He observed that despite the tales by moonlight and  cacophony of incipient hate by members of APC,  Okowa has tackled Delta’s problem with stoic strength in one year, stressing that he  would definitely build a virile and sustainable  Delta state in the nearest future.
