*Augoye, ex-governorship aspirant picks Okpe ticket

By Emma Amaize

Results from PDP House of Assembly primaries in Delta State show that the incumbent member representing Ughelli South Constituency, Hon. Reuben Izeze, lost out,  as Mr Festus Utuama, a brother of former Deputy Governor of the state, Prof Amos Utuama, was returned as the party’s flag-bearer.

Some serving members, including Hon Guwor Emomotimi (Warri South-West); Hon Arthur Akpowovwo (Ethiope East), Hon Ferguson Onwo (Isoko South 2); Hon Fred Martins (Warri North); Hon Charles Emetulu (Ndokwa West); Hon Opoko Opuoru (Warri South Constituency 2); Hon Festus Okoh- Ika South; Hon Brown Jite (Udu) among others retained the tickets for their respective areas.

Governorship aspirant and former Commissioner for Works, Chief James Augoye, who stepped down for incumbent Speaker and leading governorship aspirant, Rt. Hon Sheriff Oborevwori, both of whom are from the same Okpe constituency, effortlessly won the party’s ticket at today’s primaries.
