Thousands of Chief James Onanefe Ibori’s supporters gathered in his Oghara home in Delta state to mark the 53rd birthday of their political leader. Ibori’s Media Assistant, Mr. Tony Eluemunor, said in a press statement that though most of them came from Delta state, hundreds were from the other states of the South-South geo-political region, while some attended even from as far afield as
Bornu and states. Kaduna
Speaker after speaker noted the fact they came to call attention to Ibori’s legacies; the unrivalled development he brought to Delta state especially the four long bridges that united the Ndokwa, Ijaw, Itsekiri and Urhobo mainlands with their riverine areas –all hundreds of metres long, the sort no state governor before Ibori had attempted. They also called attention to the
Delta State University teaching Hospital, Oghara, commissioned by President Goodluck Jonathan last year, and is reputed to be about the best in Africa.
