The House of representatives hopeful for Ughelli and Udu Federal Constituency, Comrade Akpokona Omafuaire on Sunday, congratulated Chief James Onanefe Ibori, former Governor of Delta State for bagging the Tiemowei of Kabowei Kingdom chieftaincy title from HRM Shedrack Erebulu, Pere of Kabowei Kingdom.
Omafuaire in a congratulatory message in Ughelli called on the former Governor to use the new title given by a young King as an avenue to supporting young, vibrant and dedicated people.
The vibrant Journalist stressed that Ibori deserves the honour bestowed on him by the Kabowei king as his sterling qualities are rare to find.
“Ibori as one of our Alumni of the University of Benin has made many leaders and has a large heart. As a Governor, he stood tall where others quaked.
“He is irrepressible and a great leader. A master strategist, and a light that cannot be quenched. I call on him to be wary of sychophants who are trying to porn on his goodwill for selfish interest and not for public gain.
“Ibori made many people who ought to do well and continue to build on his legacy but some became poor representatives and failed ambassadors.
“In the coming election, We call on him to ensure that those who had failed the party in their representation thereby giving the party a bad name are booted out and capable people are supported to build on his legacy.” he stated.
Omafuaire thanked the Kabowei Monarch for giving honour to who honour is due, insisting that lawyers are special bred and the king has shown so with his great strides.
The NUJ Warri Correspondents Chapel Chairman use the opportunity to call on the good people of Ughelli and Udu Federal Constituency to ensure that they chose a true representative and not an absentee, incapable and docile person in 2019.
