I didn’t work against PDP –Ochei

Former Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Victor Ochei, has denied that he worked against the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during the governorship election in the state.

Speaking during a congratulatory visit to the state’s Governor-elect, Ifeanyi Okowa, at his residence in Asaba on Saturday, Ochei maintained that he had been a loyal PDP member and had no reason to work against it.

He congratulated Okowa for his electoral victory, saying his triumph was a confirmation of his grassroots reach and wide acceptance across the state.

Okowa, it would be recalled, won 21 out of 25 local government areas that make up the state.

According to Ochei, it was no surprise that Okowa emerged top in the election, given his antecedents.

He added that, “Senator Okowa has been around in the politics of Delta State and has contributed so much to the growth and development of the state.”
