The Executive Governor of Delta, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, has sacked two of his aides late last year for allegedly secretly working with one of the governorship aspirants in the 2023 election, Olorogun David Edebvie.
The news of their dismissal filtered into town during the preparation for the Christmas celebration.
The affected aides are the former Chairman, Ika south local government area, Fred Ofume who until his sack, was an Executive Secretary to the governor and Mr John Alleh, a Senior Special Adviser (SSA) from Ika northeast.
The duo were said to have been working (behind the scenes) for the governorship campaign of Olorogun Edebvie.
It was learnt that Ofume was appointed by Olorogun Edebvie, to coordinate for Ika Federal Constituency.
When contacted for confirmation, the Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to the governor, Mr Olisa Ifeajika, denied knowledge of it. “I am not aware of that”, he flatly said.
However, sources close to the corridors of power, confirmed the development.
