The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta state on Saturday held a mega rally in Ozoro, Isoko North local government area of the state to receive decampees from the opposition political parties.
However, prominent party leaders boycotted the rally even as
there was no official unveiling of the Delta PDP governorship candidate as expected.
At the announcement of the mega rally, many had thought it was to unveil the party governorship candidate in the state. But that was not to be. This is understandable.
Amongst those absent at the rally were former Governors James Ibori, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, Senator James Manager, representing Delta South and supposed host, Barrister Kingsley Otuaro, Deputy Governor, Chief David Edevbie, governorship aspirant and others.
Those present at the mega rally include the Minority Leader, House of Representatives, Hon Ndudi Elumelu, Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, Hon Sheriff Oborevwori, and House of Assembly aspirants, party leaders and political appointees across the three senatorial districts.
Recall that the speaker of the state house of assembly, Sheriff Oborevwori won the governorship primary election which was upturned by the court in favour of Olorogun David Edevbie, a former commissioner for finance.
