The governor, who spoke through the State Commissioner for Information, Charles Aniagwu during a press conference in Asaba, boasted that nobody, except God, could disrupt his plans.

Okowa also claimed that he deserves the chance of becoming the vice-presidential candidate of the PDP because he has contributed positively to the growth of the party, which he does not brag about, as a true party man.

Reacting to speculations that former Delta governor, Chief James Ibori, was secretly working against his chances to be Atiku’s running mate, Aniagwu said the rumours were the handiwork of fifth columnists.

Aniagwu maintained that Ibori would never work against Okowa’s interest, stressing that there was no rife between Okowa and Ibori who he described as a political leader in the state.

He said: “The governor has contributed to the growth of the PDP, he doesn’t boast about it because as a member of the party he has the responsibility to do that.

“You also know how many times the party brought him in to assist in conducting primaries. I am not aware if there is anybody who is bringing any roadblock, if there is anybody who is going to block Okowa, I think it should be God.

‘And the last time I checked I don’t think he has offended God for God to take that decision against him.

“So we are on course, I don’t think there is any problem between Okowa and Ibori, these are persons who have worked together very closely.

“And Okowa has continued to respect our leader, Chief James Ibori. I have not heard Ibori speak evil of Okowa neither have I heard my boss speak badly of Ibori”.

KanyiDaily recalls that Atiku Abubakar emerged as the presidential candidate of the PDP on May 29 and has begun consultations for a running mate.
