Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori at the just concluded gubernatorial primaries today. pic.twitter.com/OyoUNXev7bMay 25, 2022
The Okpe born politician came tops because he is a credible candidate and was further backed by Delta State governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa.
This is further proof of the powers of a sitting governor. Dr. Okowa had anointed Oborevwori who is the speaker of the State House of Assembly against the hopes of former governor, James Onanefe Ibori whose candidate was David Edevbie.
Thus the former strongman Ibori cannot force his will on the political party any longer and any decision that fails to carry the endorsement of the state governor, cannot be accepted. That is the way of power and politics.
