Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, Delta State

By Daniel Dafe

Three days after Governor Ifeanyi Okowa sacked Barr. Fred Latimore Oghenesivbe, JP as his Executive Assistant (Communication), the Political Communication Consultant, in an open letter has apologized to his former boss, saying that he remains loyal to him despite his removal.

Recall that Latimore had taken to the social media to express his disgust over what he considered as unfair treatment by the Okowa administration during the five years he served him. Unhappy about this move, Governor Okowa relieved him of his duties, saying that his offence was insubordination and recklessness.

In the said open letter published on Sunday evening on his official Facebook page, Latimore said that his action was to enable the governor look into his plight and not to engage in media war, noting that from public reactions “it became glaring that his approach directly or indirectly amounted to an act of inappropriate official conduct.”

Continuing, he called on the Governor and the state government to forgive him over any embarrassment or inconveniences his “unintentional act may have caused.”

Adding: “I pledge my loyalty to the Governor as a financial member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and as a Party Chieftain.

His letter reads further: “I thank God Almighty that the termination of my appointment was not based on gross incompetence and negligence of duty. I gave my all to the Governor and this administration from April 3, 2017 till 29th December, 2021, and in the process made so many enemies for myself. I am a one-way traffic loyalist.”

“I will never in any form go against my former boss, the governor of Delta State, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa, or this administration either now or in the future,” he said.

He also urged Deltans and party faithfuls to continue to give the Governor and his administration the needed support and prayers to finish strong in 2023.

READ LETTER BELOW-

Re: Termination Of My Appointment.

Happy New Year to His Excellency, The Governor of Delta State and my former amiable boss, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa, to all Deltans, my friends and detractors.

2. I know for sure that millions of people across the state and beyond were surprised that I did not react negatively to my removal as EAC to H.E. the Governor of Delta State, and did not provoke media uprising.

3. My candid intention was to enable the governor look into my plight and not to engage in media war, and from public reactions it became glaring that my approach directly or indirectly amounted to an act of inappropriate official conduct, more particularly the content and the grave error that occurred while distributing one of the messages to few government officials. It fell into the hands of one of my core detractors and before it could be deleted, he went virile with it on social media.

4. Consequently, I wish to use this medium to publicly apologise to H.E. the Governor and the state government over any embarrassment or inconveniences my unintentional act may have caused.

5. I pledge my loyalty to the Governor as a financial member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and as a Party Chieftain.

6. I thank God Almighty that the termination of my appointment was not based on gross incompetence and negligence of duty. I gave my all to the Governor and this administration from April 3, 2017 till 29th December, 2021, and in the process made so many enemies for myself. I am a one-way traffic loyalist.

7. Let me state clearly that I will never in any form go against my former boss, the governor of Delta State, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa, or this administration either now or in the future.

8. I urge Deltans and party faithfuls to continue to give our amiable Governor and this administration the needed support and prayers to finish strong in 2023. He is the father to all Deltans and I remain his loyal subject.

9. Happy New Year, once again.

10. Sincerely,

Signed:
Dr (Barr) Fred Latimore Oghenesivbe, JP
(Political Communication Consultant),
The Pen Eagle’s Cottage, Lagos, Nigeria.
