Onochie Osheokwu, the recently resigned Senior Special Assistant on Youth Development to Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, has opened up on the controversy trailing his resignation from his principal and joining the Labour Party to support its candidate, Peter Obi.

Mr Osheokwu, in an interview with Punch newspaper, published on Sunday, October 9, disclosed that he intentionally tendered his resignation to join the Obidient movement.

The vibrant youth (Osheokwu) who was appointed two years ago by Governor Okowa said his decision came without hesitation while stating that Peter Obi is a sincere man who does not want to play politics.

In his words: “I see (Peter) Obi as a new breath and from his track record, from what he has done in Anambra State, he is a sincere man. He is not someone that wants to play politics.

“He is someone with the people in mind. He wants to do the right thing. He wants to change the old ways to new. That is what brought about my decision to resign and support him.

“With him, I know I will experience a better Nigeria; a Nigeria where if you are a government official, elected or appointed, if you are not doing fine, you can honourably resign and allow someone who is capable to do the job. We have not got such in Nigerian politics. I know Obi can do the job; I see in him someone who can do it; I see him not as a politician but someone who wants to serve.

Meanwhile, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta state has expressed his fears over the candidacy of Peter Obi ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Okowa in an interview with Daily Independent newspaper, revealed that Peter Obi has become a powerful force in the presidential race and will pose a problem from the southeastern region of Nigeria.

Peter Obi who is the former governor of Anambra state situated in the southeast region looks certainly in pole advantage to pull massive votes from the region.
