Publisher, Secret Reporters, Fejiro Oliver, has predicted a win for James Manager if Delta Central fails to present only one aspirant in the governorship primaries of the party that holds today.
According to his post on Facebook, the investigative journalist said that Manager is Okowa’s Plan B if Sheriff Oborevwori’s arrangement fails to work, adding that Okowa also has an arrangement to scatter Urhobo votes.
In his words: “In God’s name, I beg Urhobo candidates today on my knees. Okowa is already executing his plan B by making sure James Manager wins the election today.
“His plan all these while is to scatter Urhobo votes by supporting a candidate.
“On my knees, please enter an alliance this morning for all of you to step down for just one Urhobo son.
“If the Edevbie and Sheriff camp does not go well, please step down for Peter Mrakpor.
“James Ebiowou Manager is already coasting home to victory. Plssssssss step down or intensify the lobby to see Urhobos get it today.
“Urhobo MUST not lose today.”
According to him a rain of dollar is presently going on at the venue of the primaries in Asaba.
He said: “David Edevbie Camp was the first to release $1,000 per delegate. That’s about N605k and the Okowa Sheriffied did same $1,000 last night around 11:45pm.
“This morning it continued.
“Edevbie has raised the bar to $1,500 while Sheriff is giving $5,000.
“James Manager is giving $7,000. Edevbie later made up his own to $7,000.”
A winner from the tough contest will emerge at the end of today as a total of 845 Delegates
with Delta North’s 309,
Delta Central’s 263 and
Delta South’s 273 delegates will choose the party’s flag bearer.
The question on the lips of many is who between former Governor, James Ibori and Governor Ifeanyi Okowa will determine the next governor.
