X-raying the massive infrastructural development under the Chief James Onanefe Ibori administration in Delta State,one will imagine if His Excellency Chief Ibori is an African man,due to his style and strong leadership charisma he exhibited as a Governor of Delta State.
Despite all the media war to nailed him to cross,his people still love him and see him as one of the best Governor not only ever emerged from Delta State,but from the whole South-South geopolitical zone.
Chief Ibori been a victim of political vendetta and payback by Chief Olusegun Obasanjo,due to the strategic roles played by Chief Ibori under the Late Umar’ Musa Yaradua administration and his fair believed and campaigned of resources control,OBJ pushed and pulled every resources, using his own brother from South South,President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan who was a moo in ship,to finally nailed him to the cross.
The idea was to reduced Ibori political power at the federal level,recalled Ibori waved enormous power at the federal level as at that time,more than Tinubu of Lagos State whom they served as Governor’s at the same time.Urhobos and Deltans were not sensitive at their hidden agenda.Today,Tinubu is a National leader of APC seeking to be president, even when he allegedly pulled bullion van during election.
Today,Ibori is best qualified to be president of Nigeria more than any other person and I believed if granted pardon by the federal government,would win the PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION convincingly 2023.
The North trusted Ibori even more than Tinubu becuase of his close tie working with the North over the years.This is why the South-West political strategists used the corruption allegations in bringing him down but he has bounced back by the grace of Almighty God.
Ask me,since 1999 till date,is there no corrupt politicians in Nigeria?
How many have been jailed among ex-Governors ?
Ibori is just a political scapegoat of OBJ and so,needs political pardon to throw himself into the political ring of 2023 presidential election.
