The monarch had before now described the attack on governor Ifeanyi Okowa by the Southern and Middle Belt Leaders’ Forum (SMBLF), for accepting to be vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as malicious and calculated at smearing the governor’s image.


Speaking on behalf of the chairman of Delta North Traditional Rulers Forum, (DNTRF), Obi (Prof) Chike Edozien, the Asagba of Asaba, said the decision of the SMBLF to declare Senator Ifeanyi Okowa personal non grata was uncalled for and unacceptable to majority of the people from the region.


He said, “The action and outburst of SMBLF, which is supposed to protect interest of its people, “depicts personal hatred against the person of governor Ifeanyi Okowa who holds elders, especially Chief E K Clark in high esteem.”
