Incumbent governor of Delta state, Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa was all praises for a former governor of the state, James Ibori, upon being declared as winner of the March 9, governorship election.

In his victory speech, the present governor hailed the former governor as the mentor, who taught him everything he knows about governances – while thanking him for his support through the years.

I want to appreciate my leader, former Governor James Ibori for his encouragement, support and all he has taught me all through these years, he said.

I also thank the Chair of the campaign, DG of the campaign and all other members of the Campaign Council and the Directorate for the great job done in not just delivering myself and my deputy, but also delivering to Senators, 9 members of House of Reps and 26 members of the House Assembly, he added.

It will be recalled that Ibori, who served as Governor of the state between 1999 to 2007 was convicted of corruption for which he served jail term in the UK.

The statement which he shared via his Twitter handle on Monday, sparked serious reactions amongst some Nigerians, who decried why a former governor convicted of corruption will be someone’s mentor.
