Former Governor of Delta State, James Ibori, has said that his perceived calmness over political matters was not because he is afraid of anybody.
He spoke alongside incumbent Governor of Delta State and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, in the March 2 elections, at Ughelli while addressing members of the Delta Central Equity Group who endorsed the candidature of Okowa as their governorship candidate.
They both affirmed that the electorate in the state will not be provoked or intimidated during the polls.
Ibori said: “Some people would say Ibori is not doing enough but I am not afraid of anybody. Time has passed when those who don’t know dictate to those who know, but when people who know dictate to those who know, l am not afraid of saying it.
“We will not be provoked, induced and intimidated but we will vote peacefully and use our PVCs to speak and, as you rightly said, the next governor is Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa.”
Okowa, in his remarks, said: “We would not allow anybody to come and cheat us or scatter our votes because we need peace.
“You have not made a wrong choice in me because, with Ibori on my side, victory is sure.”
