Closure of Warri roads targeted at sabotaging APC campaign flag off – Niboro
By Gabriel Elozino
Delta State All Progressive Congress (APC) Campaign Organization has accused the Delta State Government and the Chairman of Warri South Local Government Council, Mr Michael Tidi of attempting to sabotage its Delta State Campaign flag-off billed for November 19, 2022.
In a statement by Ima Niboro, Director, Communications and Media Strategy, the Campaign Organisation condemned the closure of routes leading to and from the Warri Township Stadium, venue of the APC Presidential Rally and Delta state campaign flag-off.
The presidential rally and state flag-off are scheduled as flagship events as the party starts off its vigorous campaign to oust the ruling PDP in Delta State from what it described as an incompetent and clueless leadership style.
According to him, “information reaching us indicates that the Warri South local government council Chairman, Dr Michael Tidi, has given an order closing routes leading to the Warri Township Stadium with effect from Monday, November 14 through Monday, November 28.

“The closed routes include Ubeji Roundabout, Okere Square and the Edjeba Community Road from SPDC Gate. He did not give any sensible reason for the closure but went ahead to provide very difficult ‘alternative routes’ such as Elizabeth Close for Ubeji Roundabout users, Eboh Road for Okere Square and DBS Warri route for Edjeba Community Road users.
“Delta APC Campaign Organization views the action of the Warri South local government council Chairman as an attempt to frustrate and sabotage the flag off of the Presidential and Gubernatorial campaigns of the party by the ruling PDP in the Delta State.
“Faced with its dismal performance in governance, the Dr Ifeanyi Okowa-led PDP administration has clearly seen that their misgovernance portends a coming electoral disaster at the polls next year, and have resorted to wickedness, illegality, and every dubious means possible to thwart their inevitable rout.
“We want to assure that the APC in Delta State is strong, resilient and capable of crushing the infantile hurdles set by Okowa and his fawning minions, including the said Tidi.
“The Campaign Organization is determined to vacate the closure order, and while at it, alternative routes of accessing the stadium on the flag-off day shall be secured and communicated to our thronging members and supporters.
“We appeal to our teeming members to remain law abiding and follow the instructions that will be released on alternative routes to the stadium.”
