Igbuya’s Aide Alleges Delta PDP Chairman Hijacked His Okowa’s Mega Rally Proposal



The much-talked about mega rally by Delta Central Senatorial District chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party designed to shore up support for Governor Ifeanyi Okowa was a proposal allegedly ‘stolen’ from an aide of ousted Speaker, Mr Monday Igbuya, BigPen Online has been told.

Igbuya’s former Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Henry Ebireri alleged that the state PDP Chairman, Mr Kingsley Esiso actually ‘stole’ his proposal for the mega rally.

He said that the idea for the rally was conceptualized by a political group which wrote proposal to that effect and handed same to Esiso who later schemed them out of the planning process.


While the rally was ongoing in Sapele, country home of Igbuya, the former Speaker media aide issued a press release to newsmen discrediting Esiso as not be the actual initiator of the rally.

Ebireri, also backed up his claims with an earlier press release he used prior to the rally saying: “your party chairman, Kingsley Esiso thinks he is smart.

Giving details of what transpired, he said: “I released a press statement on behalf of Deltans for Continuity announcing a major rally for Okowa.


“I met him, discussed how I intend mobilizing Deltans for the governor as part of relationship between the legislature and the executive.

“I left the proposal on the Sapele rally with him.

“He said he would get back to me.


“A smart boy, he hijacked the programme, constituted committees and sourced for funds without bringing me into the picture. This is our Delta State”, Ebireri lamented.

In an earlier statement by Ebireri about the rally he was proposing, he claimed that about 200,000 people are expected to join leaders of the new political action committee, Deltans for Continuity (DFC) to mobilize millions of Nigerians, particularly Deltans to support Governor Ifeanyi Okowa in 2019.
