ukahThe Delta State Government notes with great concern the statement credited to the Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, accusing Delta State Governor, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa of deploying militants to Edo State to allegedly disrupt the now postponed governorship election earlier slated for Saturday, 10th September, 2016.

This allegation is baseless, unfounded, spurious and tendentious. The latest outburst from Governor Oshiomole is consistent with his favourite pastime of heating up the polity with unguarded utterances and wild allegations.

We vehemently reject this accusation as alarmist in conception, reckless in delivery, puerile in content and false in facts and, so, fit only for kindergarten’s “tales by moonlight”.

Governor Okowa is a peace loving Nigerian who has never and will not engage in any activity inimical to law and order.

It needs to be reiterated that the exalted office of the Governor is one that demands decorum and maturity. Therefore, those who are privileged to occupy such offices need to exercise restraint in their public conduct and utterances. Governor Okowa has committed himself to raising the standard of governance in all ramifications and, therefore, will not descend into “gutter politics”.
