The politics played in 2006 by the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, under the then President Olusegun Obasanjo wrecked havoc in the whole Niger Delta struggle for resource control.
Chief Obasanjo who knew very well that His Excellency Chief James Onanefe Ibori is a man with “Big Heart” he can not control like a puppet,to do his bidding,went and forced Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan,a very weak man,who doesn’t know anything about the dynamics of National politics,to be the Vice President to Late President Umaru Musa Yar’adua of blessed memory, against the wish of Yar’adua who preferred Ibori to be his Vice.This is the reason until the death of President Yar’adua,he didn’t worked with Goodluck Jonathan, eventhough,he was the Vice President,but Chief James Onanefe Ibori who has the rare phenomenon, experienced, technicality and developmental blueprint,for good governance and further played a strategic roles in the creation of Ministry of Niger Delta.
This is the basis of Chief Ibori opposition to Obasanjo who was pushing Goodluck Jonathan as President to continuously ruling Nigeria,as a president through indirect means,after his failed 3rd term bid.
H.E Ibori adamant to Obasanjo wicked and selfish motives,is the basis of his crucification, using Goodluck Jonathan to further nailed him to the cross of public estate.
This is the ordeal Chief James Onanefe Ibori went through,for standing against evil and wickedness against the Nigeria state and what happened after the government of Late Yar’adua,which Nigerians can testified as one of the best administration in history,in which Chief Ibori played a very crucial role?
Furthermore,Chief Ibori was sent to political exile through the imprisonment,on alleged crime which even the British government investigated the whole process,after it was reported that the Crown prosecuting service led by Det Sgt John McDonald, who is accused of receiving payment in return for providing information about the case, headed the police investigation deceived the court.
Have you ever asked yourself why Chief James Onanefe Ibori was the only Governor ever jailed in Nigeria?
There is high political interest from his enemies within Urhobo Nation who sold him out to those outside,like the case of Jesus, for their selfish reasons.
Finally,H.E Chief James Onanefe Ibori deserve respect and his fundamental right to vote and being voted for, be fully restored through state pardon by President Muhammadu BUHARI,so that he can join the presidential race come 2023.
He is best qualified and I will keep calling on the Federal Government to do the needful,so as to accord him the right to join the race,as Nigerians are gradually knowing the truth.
The public should note,that there is nobody pushing me to do this,I have right to my opinion and it should be respected,even if it doesn’t go in consonant with your philosophy, ideology and interest in the public estate.
