Reclaim Delta Coalition: Atiku/Okowa A Ticket Made In Hell,

By EgbemaVoice,

If it was not already clear that Alhaji Atiku Abubarkar and the People's Democratic Party, PDP, have absolutely nothing to offer this country, it has certainly become incontestable by his picking Delta State Governor, Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa, as running mate.

Okowa stabbed Ndigbo in the back, betrayed Peter Obi and pulled the rug from under Nyesom Wike's feet.

It is this traitor that Alhaji Atiku Abubarkar, as if to similarly prove himself a traitor, has now picked as running mate in a race they are both clearly destined to run to absolutely nowhere.

Atiku claims he is the messiah destined to save Nigeria but his preferred partner is the very worst state governor in today's Nigeria.

Within less than half a year, Okowa has borrowed over 300 billion naira in the name of the richest state per capita in Nigeria.

Within under six months, Okowa, in cahoots with the rubber-stamp Delta State House of Assembly, led by his Man Friday of a barely educated governorship candidate, has saddled Deltans with such a humongous debt overhang that the richest state in Nigeria as per oil revenue has now also become the most indebted state in the entire country!

Atiku claims that he wants to unite Nigerians, end nepotism, kill sectionalism and put a stop to divisions amongst Nigerians.

Yet, his perfect partner in his quest to end division in our country is the most divisive and sectionalist governor in the entire country!

Okowa claimed he was working towards Anioma Agenda when he wanted to be Governor but the only place he developed in Delta North was his village, Owa-Alero. 

If a man, while being state governor and chief executive, could not develop his senatorial district, is it if he becomes Vice President and a mere spare tyre requiring a president's approval before making any move, that he should be expected to benefit his supposed constituency?

The only persons Okowa has empowered throughout his governorship are his fellow village people from Owa-Alero and environs.

You cannot be more tribalistic, nepotistic and sectionalist than Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa.

His brothers and sisters execute all the contracts in Delta State.

His younger brother is in charge of sports in the state.

His daughter is a Special Assistant with a budget that is not available to any commissioner and would make any Secretary to the State Government green with envy.

The same daughter was returned unopposed as a candidate for the Delta State House of Assembly in a disgusting process in which Governor Okowa frustrated Governor Ibori's daughter and completely humiliated Governor Uduaghan's daughter.

If anybody thinks President Muhammadu Buhari has been sectionalist, they should just wait for someone like Okowa and see sectionalism, nepotism and favouritism unleashed as full-blown pandemics in this country!

The Atiku/Okowa ticket is a tasteless joke taken way too far.

It does not just leave a sour taste in the mouth or even merely make one sick to the stomach; it brings up torrents of vomit gushing out of the mouths of those who really know the two worthless articles that make up the unmarketable presidential ticket of the PDP.

If there were still any illusions that Atiku might have something to offer this country, the serial failure, himself, has generously dispelled them by picking this monumental mistake of a "one chance Governor" as running mate.

At least Deltans now know where all the gargantuan loans Okowa and Sheriff Oborevwori, or, is it Francis Oborevwori, have been hanging on their necks with heartless recklessness, have been going to.

Okowa collected a loan of 150 billion naira in the name of Delta State and used the money to buy a presidential ticket for Atiku and a vice presidential ticket for himself.

If Deltans want to know why their pensioners have not been paid and are dying, standing on the que, while waiting for their entitlements; if Deltans want to know why each and every road constructed by the Okowa administration fails miserably within just three months of commissioning; and, if Deltans want to know why their state remains an embarrassment and an eyesore even though it is the richest amongst all the states of the country by 13 percent derivation, all they need to do is search for their money in the bulge of Atiku's greedy pockets.

If Nigerians are still wondering where all the patently illegal and atrociously irregular loans Okowa and Oborevwori have been taking went to, they should ask Atiku Abubarkar how he was able to outspend everyone else, including governors of oil rich states during PDP's presidential primary.

It is simply most wicked that a Niger Deltan governor would borrow huge sums of money in the name of the poverty stricken people of his state, only to then divert the money to purchasing a presidential ticket that is supposed to come to Southern Nigeria for a desperado from Adamawa and then stupidly settle for a vice presidential slot having stabbed his fellow Southern governors in the back.

Atiku is clearly so desperate to be President that he would sell even his Cameroonian father and mother if he had the chance.

Who would have believed he would so heartlessly stab James Ibori, his longtime friend, in the back?

Yet for money, someone who wants us to vote him as Nigeria's President would team up with Okowa, of all people, to further humiliate his longstanding comrade in politics, James Ibori!

Who would have believed that Atiku would deny Nyesom Wike the vice presidential slot as compensation for his loss at the primary and in order to heal the wounds brought about by putrid optics of a perceived gang-up by the North against the South during the primary and a resulting North/South divide still rocking the PDP?

Atiku is clearly not presidential material; he is just another cash and carry clown who wants to be President, forgetting that Nigeria has left him and his likes behind.

Atiku/Okowa is a ticket made from betrayal.

Atiku/Okowa is a ticket made from treachery. 

Atiku/Okowa is a ticket made from bribery and corruption. 

It is a combination made in Hell and it can only take Nigeria further down the abyss.

It is clear that God is determined to punish the PDP for its atrocities in sixteen wasted years in power.

Atiku stole the turn of the South and Okowa was his willing accomplice and financier all along.

Indeed, with an Atiku, it was already going to be quite difficult for the party to win the ever elusive Presidency.

With an Okowa added to the mix, it has become an absolute impossibility.

In short, with a presidential ticket printed in Hell, the PDP now looks more like a secret society than a political party.

Atiku has made many mistakes throughout his mistake-filled political career. 

Picking Okowa as running mate is the biggest mistake of all.

If anyone was still confused about the star Atiku brought with himself when he came to this world, then it should be crystal clear to all by now that becoming President is most certainly not his destiny at all!

2023: Atiku's Running mate, straw Poll favours Okowa,

2023: Atiku's Running mate, straw Poll favours Okowa, As the search for a running mate to Atiku Abubakar, the standard bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) hots up, Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, appears the most suitable within the party as the fit and proper person to help Atiku win the 2023 presidential election.
