Former Delta PDP chairman, Utomi in war of words
There seems not to be let up in the war of words between top members of the Delta State branch of the People ‘s Democratic Party (PDP) and the director of Lagos Business School, Prof. Pat Utomi.
The latest outburst is from the former Delta State Chairman of the PDP, Chief Edwin Uzor, who advised Utomi to first learn the rudiments of political engagement and humbly subject himself to some political education before taking on Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, who he recently accused of taking the state on a path of misery.
He said, “Utomi has the constitutional right to aspire to any office in the land but he should first learn the rudiments of political engagement and humbly subject himself to some political education before opening his mouth.”
The latest verbal duel comes on the heels of a recent peace parley, which was brokered between former Delta state Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan and the director of Lagos Business School, Prof. Pat Utomi by the Catholic Archbishop of Sokoto Diocese, Rev. Matthew Hassan Kukah.
Uduaghan had dismissed Utomi, who accused the state government of excessive borrowing and profligacy to first aspire as a councillor in his hometown of Ibusa, Oshimili North Local Council before seeking to be governor
The former chairman advised Utomi to concentrate his efforts to right the wrong of helping to promote the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government that has inflicted the worst form of suffering on Nigerians.
Presently, he said that Nigeria is gradually becoming a country known for suicide deaths as a result of the horrible economic policies of the APC-led Federal Government, which have wreaked incalculable damage to the family economy.
