Agbor Monarch, Dr. Benjamin Ikenchuku, Keagborekuzi 1, has scored Senator Ifeanyi Okowa as one of the best politicians in Nigeria. The king made the declaration when he hosted members of The Prime League of Nigeria in his ancient palace. According to him, the performance of the governor has warmed him to the people.
“The man you came here to talk about has 100% of my support. Politics is a difficult and thankless job. Senator Ifeanyi Okowa is the first person that did something for me when I returned though I won’t mention it. I love the way he mends fence even with people he does not like. As a first time senator he headed committees that ordinarily were the exclusive reserve of old senators. And he did very well.”
While reassuring the people that he remains apolitical, the monarch said it will only be fair for Delta North person to be the governor of Delta State for eight uninterrupted years.
“I am not a politician but I honestly think that Delta North should be supported by all to do eight years as governor. I am not supporting Senator Okowa because he is from Delta North. If he were not doing well, I would have simply advised that he goes to the field to campaign or I keep silent. Now that he is doing well, I am bold and proud to make my support public. Delta North will regret if they allow the opportunity to slip. Let me add that after he finishes his successful second term, I will support him to anywhere he wants to go. Above all, we should all join to pray for him”, the monarch advised.
The monarch praised The Prime League for ensuring that their members were doing very well in their various endeavours, adding that since nineteen years he returned to his throne, the club has remained noticed through their positive activities in the society.
Mr. Alex Onyeagwu, the President of the club, while introducing Mr. Tony Obuh to speak on the aim of the visit, informed the king and his chiefs that it was a great honour to lead members to the palace. He added that the club did not only produce the first governor of Anioma extraction since the creation of the state in the person of Prince Sam Obi but said the current Governor Ifeanyi Okowa remained a dedicated member of his group.

In his remarks, Mr. Tony Obuh informed the king and his chiefs that though members of the club belong to different political parties, the support for the second term ambition of Senator Ifeanyi Okowa had no party coloration.
“We have found Senator Ifeanyi Okowa as a governor doing exceedingly well. It is for this reason that we decided to traverse the entire eleven kingdoms in Ika Land to drum support for him. His Majesty, we know that if you accept our gospel, it will be very easy and fast for the message to reach your entire kingdom. Our message is that Senator Okowa deserves another term. To us, any candidate of Anioma, that places his poster side by side with another governorship candidate that is not Senator Okowa, is evil. This is because the other two senatorial districts have done two terms each of eight years. We are confident that Senator Ifeanyi Okowa will put Delta State on the same level with Lagos State if the rate of infrastructural development he enunciated is allowed to continue.
“I am glad that His Excellency, Prince Sam Obi is here. Our motivation for three members of the Prime League of Nigeria to seek gubernatorial nomination in 2014/2015 has been achieved by Senator Okowa. He is delivering in all fronts. It is therefore necessary for us to continue to support him. In fact, one of our members is a local government chairman of the APC. He is not opposed to our resolve to ensure victory for Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, our member.”
The members of the club in the campaign/sensitisation train include, Mr. Alex Onyeagwu, Dr. E. U. Tibi, Chief E. Nwaebo, Dr. Ndu Okonye, Chief Ewere Eluebo, Dr. Sheddrack Omumu, Mr. Dan Eledu, Dr. J.
