Despite stealing conviction, PDP showers Ibori with praises
In spite of the fact that Mr. James Ibori was found guilty of stealing 250 million dollars public fund while he was the Governor of Delta State, Mr. Ibori continues to dominate the states' political landscape.
As a result of his influence and political status in Delta State, prominent Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) official in and outside the state continue to admire him and shower him with praises.
On Saturday, March 10, 2018, the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Uche Secondus, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State and former Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan lavished Ibori with praises.
On this part, Mr. Secondus said: “Ibori must be celebrated because he is a man of the people not just in Delta state but across the nation, today, he is a factor in this country. On behalf of the masses of our country, we salute you, we salute your courage because you are a man who believes in the struggle of the party.
“You [Delta State] have a son that has built a political structure that is envied across the nation. Delta State remains the only state in the nation that has a stability in political succession. It remains the only state where all the Governor that have ruled the state are still members of the PDP.”
