The Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, Monday Igbuya, has denied working against Delta PDP chieftain, Sen. Ighoyota Amori, dismissing the rumour as “absurd.”
Mr. Igbuya affirmed his loyalty to Amori and his leadership, saying, “I will forever be grateful to him for his immense contributions to the success of my political career.”
The Speaker explained that his statement on the chairmanship of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Delta State Chapter was misunderstood by some individuals in the state. “I’ll continue to support my leader, Chief Ighoyota Amori” he said
The speaker, who spoke to journalists in Asaba on Monday, praised Amori for his efforts at providing strong leadership in Delta Central.
He explained the need to give younger politicians in the area an opportunity.
“I think it is absurd for anybody to suggest that I am fighting my leader, Chief Ighoyota Amori” Igbuya said.
He urged political enemies to change the lens through which they view issues. “If there is something to be done at the national level, Amori is the person to do it” he said.
Igbuya, a thoughtful politician, described as harsh the language and words employed by Annabel Ogheneganre of Urhobo Voice in a recent article on Olorogun Felix Ibru, Urhobo and 2019.
He said it was intended to pitch him against Governor Ifeanyi Okowa and the good people of the Urhobo nation.
The speaker who reiterated Amori’s commitment to the overall well-being of the Urhobo people, appealed to those generating rumours to join hands with Governor Okowa in the onerous task of moving the state forward.
