Politicians in Delta State and many citizens of Delta have besieged the Osubi Airstrip in Okpe Local Government Area of the state where ex-Governor James Ibori is expected to land.
Following the news of Ibori’s arrival, markets and shops in Oghara, country home of the former governor, have been shut.
Olorogun Paul Abu told Punch at the airstrip where thousands of persons are awaiting Ibori’s arrival:
“We’re excited our brother is back hale and hearty. Today is a remarkable day and a day of joy.
“Whether you accept it or not, Ibori is a phenomenon and an institution in Nigeria political landscape. Our people need his contributions towards their advancement. Politics in Urhobo Land will surely wear a new look.”
