2023: Okowa’s aide carpets PDP’s premier group, DUG over defection to APC
Senior Special Assistant to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State on Media, Comrade Nelson Egware, has berated members of the new Delta Unity Group (DUG) who recently defected to the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
In a statement on Monday in Asaba, Egware described the DUG members as a group of failed politicians and intolerant losers who had their time in privileged positions in the past but have apparently failed to justify the privileged positions by impacting meaningfully in the lives of the people.
Describing the decision of the defecting members of the DUG as the last kicks of a dying horse, Egware said that no one pulls down the house he helped to buil.
He stated that the celebration of DUG members defection by the Deputy President of the Senate and Governorship candidate of the APC, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, was “dead in the water” because his gubernatorial ambition would fall flat on election day.
He said that Omo-Agege’s claim that the DUG members made things happen for the PDP in the past was fallacious and mendacious as the party was not built around individuals or any leader for that matter but firmly around the people.
Egware said, “I was waiting to see the new names Omo-Agege was calling a tsunami, but alas! the defectors were the same disgruntled party members that already left the party due to personal reasons.
“Many of them were not pleased with the emergence of Hon Sheriff Oborevwori as governorship candidate of the party and derided him with all manner of unprintable names but they forgot the place of grace in the life of any man.
“Oborevwori’s choice as a gubernatorial candidate is divine and no amount of gang-up will derail the M.O.R.E. Agenda from manifesting in the state because whom God has blessed, no man can curse.”
