Little Success gave Deltans a rallying moment to say enough is enough -Prof Utomi

I love the Okowa team. In many ways they make the Scriptures come alive by their conduct. But I will keep how they fulfill God’s intent in their methods, for a later time.
Today I want to offer them my gratitude for providing opportunity for our people to better understand Democracy as Government of the people, for the people.
If our current state of practice prevents that government from being by the people, it has at least not renounced the claim that is for the people.
This is why it is a duty of citizenship to point out what people temporarily charged with Authority to act for the people are not doing well or could do better. They could do it as individuals, like celebrated bloggers, or as Civil Society, or in organized Political Party opposition.
We, as Deltans, have been delinquent in this regards and that accounts for governance so poor that Anambra which gets a very small fraction of what comes to Delta from the Federation Account has better schools and better health care. Many pe…

The consent judgement of the Abuja Federal High Court and the iberiberism of Erue-led APC faction by Francis Onyema

For the purpose of clarity, settlement, in law, is “a compromise or agreement between litigants to settle the matters in dispute between them in order to dispose of and conclude their litigation.”
Generally, compromises reached in a law court of competent jurisdiction in the form of consent judgement are known to be binding on all parties to the agreement.
In most cases, the consent judgement, as agreed to by the parties involved, prevents the renewal of litigation. Meanwhile, the parties may incorporate the terms of the agreement into a consent judgment, recorded by the court. One of such terms might be to reopen the underlying dispute if the other party fails to fulfill the terms and conditions agreed upon.  

Therefore, it is authoritative to state that a consent judgment reached in a competent court of established jurisdiction is not the grand conclusion to a legal battle. A situation where the terms of agreement are breached by either party results to injustice which is a mockery t…

Chief Enuha congratulates Buhari, Osinbajo and APC... Calls on the opposition and Nigerians to support the new government

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Delta state, Chief Engr. Hyacinth Enuha has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari, his Vice, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, members of the All Progressives Congress and all Nigerians at large over the successful conduct of the 2019 Presidential polls and the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari .

In a statement signed by his media Assistant, Mr. Nnamdi Ofonye, the Delta North Leader of the party stressed that Buhari's victory, though a hard earned one has rewritten the political history of the country as no elite or individual could lay claim to having installed him but the masses unlike what it used to be in the past.

Press Statement: Kachikwu has offered clear-cut leadership in Delta APC

Contrary to a publication making the rounds on social media that Dr Ibe Kachikwu, the Honourable Minister of State for Petroleum Resources is “sitting on the fence” as relates to the affairs of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State, we wish to address the general public on this deceitful allegation against our principal.

For clarity sake, it is important to correct the misrepresentation of facts about the role of the Honourable Minister in building a formidable party in Delta State vis-a-vis his contributions to the reelection of President Muhammadu Buhari and other APC candidates. 

As an appointee of President Muhammadu Buhari and a leader of the party in Delta State, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu has offered clear-cut leadership insights towards resuscitating the structures of the APC in order to win elections in the State. The Honourable Minister has left no stone unturned in positioning the party to win elections especially through funding it. He has done this without bias and in su…

Will Okowa pay the price for PDP jockey? by Francis Onyema

Since the creation of Delta State in 1991 and a return to full democracy in 1999, PDP has remained at the helm of affairs in the State. They have seen the baton of the State's leadership exchange hands between Chief James Ibori, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan and Sen. Ifeanyi Okowa, the incumbent governor.
The emergence of the past governors of the State and the incumbent governor meant one man was constantly at the losing end - Chief Great Ovedje Ogboru. Although it emerges Ogboru did not lose all of the elections he contested in but was robbed of victory because of national support for the then ruling party (PDP), at the centre.

Fielding unpopular candidates will add no electoral value to President Buhari - APC Chieftain

A Delta North senatorial aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the supposed to be held October APC senatorial primaries, Ambassador Gabriel Chukwuma Oyibode has made it clear that the APC would find it difficult to get the required votes to deliver President Muhammadu Buhari, in the 2019 Presidential Election, if the party adopts a system of fielding unpopular candidates in the forthcoming elections.

Amb. Oyibode who described the exercise that produced Hon. Doris Uboh as the Delta North APC senatorial candidate as a “kangaroo election” alleged that he was illegally excluded from the contest after he duly completed the processes as required by the constitution of the party and by law to vie for the party's Delta North senatorial ticket. He stated that unpopular candidates, who emerged from a process that is at best a mockery of democracy, would add no electoral value to the reelection of President Buhari in 2019.


From our findings, Amb Oyibode duly obtained the APC …

Ndokwa people central to the Fix Ndokwa drive as Ogokuni pledges to fight unemployment through constituency intervention programmes

The All Progressives Congress (APC) House of Representatives hopeful of the Ndokwa/Ukwuani Federal Constituency, Barr Sylvester Ogokuni, is set on a selfless mission to transform Ndokwa land.

The movement which is resonating across every community of Ndokwa nation is encapsulated by the ‘Fix Ndokwa’ mantra as Barr Ogokuni is determined to heal the wounds of the Ndokwa people, perpetuated by selfish politicians, who do not have the interest of the people at heart.

In an interactive session with the Abbi born legal luminary, Barr Sylvester Ogokuni laid bare the driving force and the ideology of the Fix Ndokwa initiative.

According to him, the ideology embodies the passion to fight the Ndokwa cause and the compassion for mankind. He made it clear the only means to achieve this is by positively influencing laws and policies, and using constituency intervention programmes to address the needs of Ndokwa people, and bringing Federal Government visible presence to Ndokwa land.

Kemmer Emina lauds Buhari’s railway revolution

As residents jubilate, following the arrival of the first passenger train to Delta State some days ago, a leading Aniocha/Oshimili Federal Constituency aspirant, Hon Kemmer Brightson Emina, has lauded President Muhammadu Buhari for his developmental stride.

The APC chieftain, who hails from Ebu, Oshimili North Local Government Area of Delta State, emphasized that the railway project embarked upon by President Buhari would boost economic activities across the nation and bring about the ease of transportation of goods and services within the key sectors of the economy.

“I wish to commend our leader, President Muhammadu Buhari, for the foresight and tenacity that sprung the railway project across major cities of our nation and which is geared towards intertwining various sectors of the economy.

“It is of note that Mr President extended this massive development to our state as we hope the 154-kilometer Itakpe-Ajaokuta-Warri standard gauge line would be set for commercial operations by Se…

Attention! The Nigerian Legislative Arm

Dear Distinguished Lawmakers,
It is important to remind you, once again, that the Legislature is supposed to be the symbol of our democracy, yet, it is one institution that has held us back in many ways. This is given the fact that the interests of the ruling class have become more sacrosanct in the discharge of your legislative duties, as lawmakers of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, over the interests of the common Nigerian masses. The summon of the IGP over the “undignified" manner the Police treated Senator Dino Melaye, despite the ongoing massacre of the Benue people for more than 12 months, ascertains this claim.
Meanwhile, today, President Muhammadu Buhari demystified the mystery that has held us back by encouraging that the Legislature should provide the legal framework for the anti-corruption war to be sustained. His words: “Permit me to also seize this opportunity to call on the Legislature which provides the legal framework for the anti-corruption war to add more verve …

PDP targets Ogboru to remain in power in Delta State, APC must act fast by Francis Onyema

"Meanwhile, a reliable source in the PDP has it that the “game plan" of the Okowa loyalists is simply to throw a monkey wrench into the APC party affairs in order to ensure that Cairo Ojougboh, whom the PDP chieftains believe has an axe to grind with his former party, nor Ochei, who's a popular figure in the APC, does not emerge as the APC gubernatorial candidate of Delta State in 2019"

-Francis Onyema
As the 2019 Elections beckons, the political intrigues are manifesting as the People's Democratic Party (PDP) had orchestrated a plan to consolidate power in Delta State. The plan is simple. The All Progressives Congress (APC) must remain as an opposition party in the state and Chief Great Ovedje Ogboru, the APC governorship aspirant in the state, is the cog of what the PDP political juggernauts describe as “the masterplan".
The plan, as designed by the PDP elites, who are diehard supporters of Gov Ifeanyi Okowa, targets Ogboru as the weak link to overcome the A…

Dododo did a disservice to Ogboru, Ali and Delta State APC by Francis Onyema

“In all these, Dododo accepted the ‘token' given to him, did his ‘mago-mago’ illegitimately and without proficiency; he was finally sacked by the APC NWC. My sympathy goes to his paymasters.”
One of the major intrigues of party politics is the jostling for the heart and soul of the party, by well placed party leaders, through a legitimate process of party congresses. It is through the congresses the party executives are elected and, as it is known, party men whose stooges emerge after the congresses determines “who gets what, when and how" within the party.
It is against this backdrop that potentials of cooperation and harmony, in most congresses and what seem to be an internal party affairs, are substituted for crass manoeuvrability, disdain politicking and, to sum it all, the illegitimate approaches to the party congresses.
These unacceptable strategies were all allegedly employed by the joint forces of Chief Great Ogboru, a foremost APC gubernatorial aspirant and his collab…

The poor are under attack as Okowa plans to ban the use of Keke in Asaba, Warri by Francis Onyema

“The poor are under attack. Yet war has not been declared on poverty.” -Anonymous
The oppression of the people; hoodwinked economic ideologies; wanton brutality of the masses by forces meant to protect them and non accountability of public office holders; among other virulent failings, are the rewards Nigerians get from elected representatives entrusted with the resources of the nation and enjoys the goodwill of the people to turn the country's economic predicaments around.
Worst still, in a false posture, the oligarchs bamboozle the masses to believe that the resources of the State is a collective commonwealth, but in the real sense, economic policies are enunciated to address their needs first, leaving the masses in disarray and untold hardship. Otherwise, how would one explain that the punishment for kidnapping is death sentence whereas the punishment for corruption, that is the mother of all societal vices, is a mere jail term? It goes to show the parochial sentiments of these e…

Why Dr Cairo Ojougboh ticks the boxes as APC gubernatorial candidate by Francis Onyema

It is clear that the APC governorship quest is, by and large, of a formidable opposition, to rescue Delta State from the grip of corruption, porous economic ideology and impunity as propagated by the PDP over the years.
In the dynamism of Delta State politics, Chief Dr Cairo Ojougboh stands tall. He is an enigma of the state's political wave; an astute strategist whose political clout is undoubtedly unrivalled and extends well beyond the South-South region in general.
Dr Ojougboh’s close associates describe him as a “goal getter”, a man whose charisma and leadership style are enough to win passionate followers across board and from every nook and cranny of the nation. Amongst his disciples are the high and mighty, the finest of society, political juggernauts and the common masses, for whom he believes deserve a fair share of equity & justice.
His defection from the whittling People's Democratic Party (PDP), in September, 2017, to the All Progressives Congress, signaled an end…
