BIGPEN NIGERIA (www.bigpenngr.com) reports that Ikie made the denial after he was accused of being a mole planted by Omo-Agege in the PDP.

The denial came few hours after the Supreme Court dismissed his appeal against Governor Oborevwori.

In a post made on his Facebook page, Ikie congratulated the governor for victory at the Supreme Court, saying that “I fought my case based on personal principles”.

He wrote; “I congratulate His Excellency Rt. Honourable Sheriff Oborevwori for his victory at the Supreme Court today, being 07/07/2023, in the pre-election case which I instituted against him, PDP & INEC.

“The above said, it is not true that Distinguished Ovie Omo-Agege sponsored my case or that I was an APC mole within the PDP as now peddled by the PDP State Publicity Secretary. I am a PDP founding member. I would have won my said case if I had a financially powerful and influential backer such as Distinguished Senator Ovie Omo-Agege. I fought my case based on personal principles. Had I not, I would have taken the various inducements and ran. After all,had I been sponsored, the Distinguished Senator would have had to pay me well above the sum of 1 Billion Naira, that I was offered, in order to remain loyal to him.

“I am aware that several politicians, both within Delta State, Rivers State and beyond, had interest in the outcome of my case. None of these people contacted me directly or supported me with funds to prosecute my case. And I do not have control over what they may have done behind the scenes. They do not need my permission to take any action that they perceive as useful to their political interests.

“Once again, I thank each and everyone of you that offered me words of encouragement as I engaged with this onerous mission that just ended.

“Below is evidence of the acknowledgment of receipt of my resignation letter from the PDP by my Ward Chairman.
