2023: 'Onyeme's Choice As Delta PDP Deputy Governorship Candidate, A Ploy To Loot State's IGR --APC

… Calls On “Whistle Blowers “ To Rise To The Challenge

The Delta APC Gubernatorial Campaign Organisation has said the choice of Sir Monday Onyeme as PDP’s Deputy Governorship candidate is a clear indication that that the Ifeanyi Okowa-led administration has concluded plans to use the state’s Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) to prosecute the forthcoming General Elections.

Specifically, it accused Governor Okowa of embarking on a frantic and almost reckless fund-raising drive to create a huge financial war chest for PDP for the purpose of prosecuting the upcoming presidential and gubernatorial elections.

It would be recalled that the PDP in Delta State had announced Sir Monday John Onyeme, Executive Chairman, Delta State Board of Internal Revenue (DBIR) as running mate to Chief Sheriff Oborevwori, PDP Governorship candidate and Speaker of the state assembly.

Reacting to the development, Ima Niboro, Director, Communications and Media Strategy, Delta APC Gubernatorial Campaign Organisation, said: “The choice of Onyeme who controls the entire the Internally Generated Revenue of the state, much of which is unaccounted for, is a further confirmation that a heist is coming, if it hasn’t been executed already.

“Instead of going for persons who can give Deltans a sense of direction, they went for somebody whose hand is deep in government coffers, and in the process confirmed to the rest of the country that their intention is to plunder the state to fund both Atiku and Oborewvori’s elections.

“We urge all Deltans to be vigilant. We call on whistle blowers to rise to the challenge. A state that cannot pay pensioners cannot fund a presidential election that is leading nowhere. It cannot fund gubernatorial elections with loans procured through political incest between the Executive and Legislative branches of the state.

“Their planned perfidy must not stand. All Deltans must rise up as one to say no to this wickedness,” he said.
