The Southern and Middle Belt Leaders’ Forum (SMBLF) Ifeanyi Okowa for accepting his nomination as Vice Presidential Candidate to Alhaji Atiku.
In a statement collectively signed by Chief (Dr.) Edwin Kiagbodo Clark, OFR, CON, Leader SMBLF/PANDEF, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, Leader, Afenifere, Pogu Bitrus, President-General, Middle Belt Forum, Ambassador (Prof.) George Obiozor and President-General, Ohaneze Ndigbo Worldwide, Okowa was accused of lampooned for accepting the Vice Presidential ticket.
Below is the full statement:
“It is unspeakable and quite disappointing that Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, who is currently Chairman of the South-South Governors’ Forum, and a native of Owa-Alero in Ika North-East Local Government Area (one of the Igbo-speaking areas) of Delta State, would exhibit such barefaced unreliability.
It will be recalled that the Governor was the host for the meeting that mandated the two political parties to zone their tickets to the Southern part but he betrayed them for his personal reason.
