As the 2019 elections gathers momentum more twists seems to be unfolding, as one time governorship aspirant and a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party in Delta State, Chief Sunny Onuesoke has said that no opposition formula or strategy can unseat the party from Government House Asaba come 2019.
Onuesoke said this while reacting to a statement credited to Olorogun O’tega Emerhor over the weekend, where he (O’tega) said the opposition will not repeat the mistake of 2015.
O’tega who made the statement over the weekend when Prof. Pat Utomi, a governorship aspirant under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), paid him a consultation visit at his residence in Evwreni town, Delta State.
He said “As an individual, I have decided along with other committed APC leaders who really want change in Delta State that we will not do things the same way again this time because the opposition in Delta has not had this type of opportunity that is available to us today”.
“You will recall that in 2015, I ran for the governorship of Delta State, and still have the capacity to do that now. But I took a decision not to run because the environment supports a different formula and that formula excludes me, and that is why I am not out there consulting like others”.
However, Chief Sunny Onuesoke in a news chat with newsmen at the thanksgiving reception and welcome ceremony by chief john oguma, in honour of Chief James Ibori, said that from all indication there is no formula or new strategy that will be employ by the opposition that can be of threat to the People’s Democratic Party family in Delta state
“The truth remains that PDP is too strong in Delta State to be concern about the Opposition formula or strategy. The failure rate of the APC at the federal level has made it even more difficult for the people of Delta to accept the opposition here in the state”.
“PDP as led by our amiable governor, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, is waxing stronger and stronger in the state, soon there will be avalanche of decamping from the opposition to our party which will result in final and total collapse of the opposition structure if there is any one existing in the state” he added.
