Drama As PDP Supporters Fight Over Cooked Food At Campaign Ground In Delta



At a campaign ground in Asaba, the state capital, Delta State’s PDP supporters and ushers got into a heated argument over cooked rice on Thursday.

When Ifeanyi Okowa, the party’s vice presidential candidate, and Sheriff Oborevwori, the gubernatorial candidate, arrived at the campaign site around 10:00 am, Ifeanyi Okowa’s followers began scurrying for food that was bundled in a polythene bag.

The ushers apparently wanted to cater to the dignitaries solely, therefore they turned away the fans.

As the cooked rice bags were being broken apart, it was said that the scenario resulted in a confrontation between the ushers and the supporters.

The development drew the attention of dignitaries and interrupted the governorship candidate who was making his speech.

Addressing the supporters after calming the situation, Okowa blamed the All Progressives Congress for inflicting hunger in the land.

He said, “It is the APC that brought hunger to us. A bag of rice was N8,000 before the APC came to power; now a bag of rice is 48,000.

“Everything has gone down in Nigeria since the APC came to power. You know my political history, it is God that made it possible.

“As Atiku picked me as vice presidential candidate, God has finished His work in me because I know we will win the 2023 election.”

Also, Oborevwori, who was earlier interrupted while addressing party supporters, said he would consolidate on Governor Okowa’s achievements if elected as the governor.
