Uduaghan, Ex-Delta Governor Is Worried Over Ibori’s Visitors

Former Delta State governor Emmanuel Uduaghan has cautioned supporters of his James Ibori, not to create more problems for him through unbridled celebration of his release from prison.

The London residence of Ibori has become a Mecca of sorts for Delta politicians since his release.

The ex-convict was jailed for 13 years for money laundering and other corruption related crimes.
Since his release, friends, family member and political associates have been paying him visits in his London home.
Uduaghan, who spoke with Punch on phone, expressed concern that Ibori’s well-wishers’ actions could expose him to more political problems.

Among politicians who have visited Ibori are House of Assembly Speaker Monday Igbuya, Senator Ighoyota Amori and Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, who sensationally declared that Ibori facilitated the emergence of Senate President Bukola Saraki and House Speaker Yakubu Dogara. But Dogara has since denied having any political relationship with Ibori.

Senator Nwaoboshi, in a video, said Ibori made a governor, senators (himself as one), his daughter Eriatake Ibori a state lawmaker, among others.

The video drew public criticisms with many already calling for Ibori’s extradition and prosecution in Nigeria.

Uduaghan, who is Ibori’s cousin, said such showoffs by Ibori’s supporters could turn to haunt him.

He warned such utterance and boisterous celebration were capable of creating more problems for the ex-convict.

His words: 
“For those going to London to see Chief James Ibori and posting pictures and making statements, please stop it. We appreciate your love for him. But you can go quietly without the unnecessary publicity.
”You are creating problems for him that you can never imagine. Nigeria is a complex country and you must understand and respect people’s sensibilities."
