|Mr Uzum one of The Okawa’s Media Team member jostling for cabinet position|
As Delta State prepare for the gubernatorial election taking place on April 11th, Universalreporters247.com can authoritatively report that there is already crack in the Senator Ifeanyi Okowa campaign, as some elements within the media committee are already battling for position when victory is yet to be recorded.
According to a source close to the campaign office, one Mr Eugene Uzum, a lawyer by training but never practiced is currently teaming up with another lawyer, Cletus Uwakina to fight the leading media campaigner for the Okowa project, Fejiro Oliver. Signs of visible cracks became exposed last night when Cletus posted on some Facebook group a message attacking Fejiro Oliver as working alone.
The message posted on some Facebook groups read thus; Attention: Having monitored the posts/publications of one Mr Fejiro Oliver in the social media/print platform, the PDP Camp organisation Delta state is using this medium to inform Deltans and Nigeirans that the above named writer/blogger has no affiliation,support or link with Delta state PDP camp organisation. As a campaign organisation we remain guided by ethics and Professional standards. The interest and peaceful co existence of Deltans and their prosperity is our key objective. Whatever publication from this same individual is to the extent of its gross inconsistency a nullity.
Barr Eugene Uzum. Signed., the message concludes .
According to sources in the know, Uzum and Cletus are currently jittery over fears that Fejiro Oliver, a journalist is doing the better job of selling and defending Okowa, while taking on Great Ovedje Ogboru of the Labor Party through reports and articles may be appointed the Commissioner for Information, a position coveted by Uzum. In the absence of not given a Commissioner, one of his reliable partners squealed to UR that he has boasted to them that he will be the S.A on Social Media and Public Affairs, and stated that only Fejiro will stand on his way.
The source also revealed that Cletus is also eyeing the position of Commissioner for Youth and Sports or SSA on Media. Cletus who is the personal assistant to Dr Festus Okunbor, the campaign chairman on communication is acting the script alongside Okunbor who wants to return as the Chief of Staff if Okowa emerges as the governor.
When contacted on phone to comment on the silent battle, Fejiro denied any of such and described those who did the post as “envious Lilliputians who knows nothing about the workings of the media, but wants to lord their ignorance over men far above them. Have they finished their work in ICT unit that they will be involved? Look my job is simply to see that my principal continue to be on top of the media in Delta and not listen to idle posts of failed lawyers. For all I care, let them write while I deliver my boss in the media.
Meanwhile efforts to reach to Mr. Uzum and Mr. Cletus proved abortive as the they didn’t answer their calls.
