Igba Oseghe- Asaba
Sunreporters media Fact-checks has exposed the People’s Democratic Party, PDP Delta Central Senatorial Candidate, Ighoyota Amori on how he lied during PDP campaign in Kokori, Ethiope East Local Government of Delta State.
Amori during Delta PDP campaign in Kokori recently hinted that as a close ally of former Gov. James Ibori, he was confident and has the nod of the former governor that he is fully in support of Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevworhi candidacy.
In a twist, former Delta State House of Assembly Speaker, Monday Igbuya cautioned Amori not to use Ibori’s name to campaign, said that Ibori has spokesperson or can rather speak for himself, argued Amori was not in position to speak for the former governor.
When Sunreporters Fact-checks crew fact-checked Ighoyota Amori’s statements, observed Amori’s statement to be false, revealed that Amori only used Ibori’s name as a way to persuade the people whom already seen Amori to have betrayed David Edevbie, Ibori political godson and alleged anointed candidate for the Governorship position by publicly canvassing for Oborevworhi after alleged secret meeting with Gov. Okowa prior to the Guber primaries.
When our reporter confronted Amori of how he lied during the PDP campaign in Kokori, he couldn’t give concrete statement of how Ibori directed him to speak on his political stance, hinted that since Ibori’s daughter openly campaigning for Sheriff Oborevworhi and Okowa was enough reason to know Ibori’s stance.
“Sunreporters asked: Sir, the above story and pictures justified ur statement? Several Fact-checks revealed Ibori never directed you to speak for him, and Igbuya can’t lied against you. Prove this fact-checks wrong Sir.”
But instead of the Delta Central Senatorial Candidate to prove the findings of the Fact-checkers wrong, Amori derrayed, asked our reporter to also Fact-check the former House of Assembly Speaker, Monday Igbuya if he ever consulted Ibori too before his outburst on him.
“Ok, thanks. Also prove that Ibori directed igbuya to speak for him.”
“When Erhiatake dey campaign for Sheriff and Okowa vigorously, she nor be Ibori pikin?”
A development many political analysts has since faulted, stressed that Erhitake in her campaigns has never said anything about her father’s stance on the current political happenings in the State.
According to a Chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party PDP in the State name with-held said Erhitake is always careful in that regard because she knows that she cannot speak for the father on certain let alone political ally.
“We are all saying the same thing.Without being told, we are all aware Ibori is annoyed.We are equally aware AMORI was playing politics with his name.”
Former Ethiope West LGA Chairman and Chieftain of All Progressive Congress, Chief Jerry Wilson Omene noted since he was nolonger in PDP It was difficult to know their agreement but believed Amori lied.
“Since am not their party member, it’s difficult for me to know their previous agreement. Am relying on media media reports and I believed he lied.
Very top aide to James Ibori who was so furious spoke to our reporter from Comfort Villa, Lagos described Amori as a subtle liar, advise him to campaign with his name and not that of the man he betrayed.
