Former Aides Pray For Ibori

An aide of the immediate past Delta State Governor, James Ibori, yesterday prayed for his victory in what appears to be a big legal battle.

Mr. Ebenezer Okorodudu, former Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, under Ibori’s administration, was emotionally moved to say the prayers at a workshop organised by the Directorate of Local Government Affairs in conjunction with Yardsticks (West Africa) Limited, Warri, for local government administrators at the Chadef Hotel, Asaba.

Okorodudu described Ibori as a great leader and prayed for his cousin, Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan, asking God to assist him to deliver on his mandate of moving the state to the next level of development.

Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Chief Tony Nwaka, local government transition chairmen, supervisors and heads of government parastatals in the 25 local governments of the state, who attended the meeting, also chorused a loud amen! to the prayer.

In his opening remarks, Nwaka said the workshop was designed to sensitize participants to the concept of good governance as “a responsibility, which leaders owe to their followers”.

The SSG urged the participants to always seek to complement the policy of openness, transparency and accountability of the state government “to re-kindle the hope of our people at the grass root that tomorrow might yet be great.”

The workshop was organised to address local government problems, ranging from legal sources and methods of revenue generation, the relationship between elected representatives and the citizenry in a democracy and financial discipline in the councils.

It decried the spate of illegal collection of taxes and levies across the council areas in the state.

  2. What do you expect them to do?were they all not part of the looting od the coffers of the state?they are now afraid that the long arm of the law will catch up with them soon.shams to the so call aides.May they not see sleep like ther DON Ibori

  3. Delta Igbo “leaders” disgracing themselves by standing up for a man who did nothing to uplift them while he was in power. Idiots! They should be praying for the people he misruled, misled and stole from.

  4. This God is so merciful. Oga, let me tell you that no matter how you pray fast and look unto God, He is not going to answer you, because the prayer of a thief, looter, slanderer, murderer, etc. is abormination unto God. Go and read your scriptures if you are a christian. You people will dearly pay for what you have done. No sinner goes unpunished. Any soul that sin shall die, declares the Lord.
    The only way out is if you make proper restitution, plead for forgiveness, ask the entire state to have mercy on you by media publicity, and plead guilty for the offence you have committed. Tell them how many people you have killed and assulted, the amount you have stolen from the state. Return all of them with interest. Then we can start thinking of forginving you and your Governor. Please stop insulting God because He is not your mate.
