Former Secretary of the Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission, DESOPADEC, Chief Andy Asavwota, has expressed delight at the return of ex-governor James Ibori. Ibori, who arrived the country on Saturday met with the DG of DSS Hameed Ali earlier in the day.In his reaction, Asavwota, Ibori’s close associate, declared that the entire Deltans were happy the politician was back. “Ibori is the man on ground, either here or in limbo, he has affected all and takes everybody along without discrimination.
“He is just like Jesus Christ because he is a man who does not want anyone to suffer,’ Daily Trust quoted him as saying. “With his coming around, the politics in our polity here would change. If not the ganging up at the first instance when he was looking up to the vice presidency, it would have been a different ball game entirely.“We made his arrival low-key and by the time the whole of Deltans knew he was in town, the entire state erupted in jubilation”, he added.
On his part, a member of the state House of Assembly, Mr Alphonsus Ojo, said: “I feel very much elated and feel like break dancing because he is not just a former Governor, but our maximum political leader. “His arrival would bring lots of changes in our psych and social integration which would be restored again as it was when he was around. His arrival would bring unity to the politics of Delta State”.
