Let me tell you that I was taken to court but I thank God for giving us the resources to settle the issue”.
“Why are we pretending as if all is well? Yesterday it was Otega and Ogboru faction but now it’s Ogboru and Ogboru faction that are fighting. We are not ready to win election. The only house of assembly Candidate that is not in court is Hon Moses Ogodo.Ogboru is also in court. This is the time to campaign yet we are still going to court what time do we have to campaign? It is obvious that we are not ready tow in election in Delta State” he said.
Igbuya, who picked the APC House of Representative ticket but was taken to court by Hon. Henry Boro, said “I started running for election in 1987; I will not fail because it’s not part of my record because I have my own strategy. I have never tasted opposition. I want to win and everybody here wants us to win. Anything that affects me affects us. Any one that wants to be a stumbling to this great party should stay away from the party” he said.
