The chief press secretary to the governor of Delta state, Charles Ehiedu Aniagwu, has lambasted the former Speaker of Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Victor Ochei, over his comments on the governor’s administration’s achievements, challenging Ochei to reveal how he made his money.
He took on the former speaker while answering questions posed to him by Niyi Ojemakinde while on Trend Talk speaking about Delta state governance at the Trend 100.9 FM at the early hours of Wednesday.
Aniagwu asked: “Who was Victor Ochei before his entrance into politics? How come he became stupendously rich just by being in the House for 12 years?
Aniagwu stressed that it was inconsequential joining issues with Ochei’s vituperations, maintaining that Ochei reigned as speaker yet could not effect the repair of the road leading to his official quarters at the legislative quarters.
He also alleged that Ochei as speaker manipulated the Independent Power Plant, IPP Project and many other state contracts to his company, yet got paid but refused to deliver.
He posited that Ochei does not possess the moral requisite to question the developmental integrity of Governor Okowa, being himself the biggest fraud produced in politics.
Aniagwu mentioned several projects of Governor Okowa’s administration including the Asaba airport, Asaba stadium, the ongoing storm water drainage, Cable Point road, Delta state Job Creation Initiatives and Ukwu-Nzu road in Aniocha North.
Recently, Victor Ochei was on the same platform where he alleged that Governor Ifeanyi Okowa is the worst governor ever produced in Delta state.
But in swift reactions, some aides to the governor have been condemning Ochei for making such comments.
On Wednesday, Charles Aniagwu who had claimed never to join issues with Ochei until the question came from his interviewer, had to query Ochei’s moral justification to speak against his boss.
Victor Ochei was in PDP but defected to Accord after his failure to secure the PDP Governorship ticket and later to APC where he is also seeking another opportunity to contest the Governorship of Delta State.
