Ikie -v- PDP, Oborevwori & INEC: Novwe Ikie’s Resolute Denial Shatters Mole Allegations, Unveiling the Truth

Against the backdrop of Chief Aghwarianovwe Novwe Ikie’s loss to Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori in the much-anticipated Supreme Court ruling between Ikie v. PDP, Oborevwori & INEC, Ikie emphatically debunks the claim that he was a mole strategically planted within the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) by Senator Ovie Omo-Agege.

While congratulating Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori for his victory at the Supreme Court, Novwe Ikie firmly clarifies that, prior to his resignation, he was a staunch member of the PDP, and the allegations circulating about his affiliation with the APC are baseless and misleading.

Setting the record straight, Novwe Ikie asserts that he pursued his pre-election case based on personal principles rather than being sponsored by Distinguished Senator Ovie Omo-Agege. He emphasizes his unwavering commitment to the PDP and highlights that he resisted financial inducements totaling 1 billion and 200 million Naira. Furthermore, he dismisses any association with other politicians who may have had an interest in the outcome of the case, affirming that he had no control over their actions.

In his words, “it is not true that Distinguished Ovie Omo-Agege sponsored my case or that I was an APC mole within the PDP as now peddled by the PDP State Publicity Secretary. I am a PDP founding member. I would have won my said case if I had a financially powerful and influential backer such as Distinguished Senator Ovie Omo-Agege. I fought my case based on personal principles. Had I not, I would have taken the various inducements and ran. After all, had I been sponsored, the Distinguished Senator would have had to pay me well above the sum of 1 Billion Naira, that I was offered, in order to remain loyal to him.”

Expressing gratitude to those who supported him throughout this arduous journey, Novwe Ikie presents evidence of his resignation letter from the PDP, affirming his departure from the party and bestowing a heartfelt blessing upon Delta State and Nigeria as a whole.

The Delta State PDP promptly responds to Novwe Ikie’s resignation letter, asserting that he was a mole within their ranks purposely planted by Senator Ovie Omo-Agege. They attribute his malicious litigation to his defeat in the gubernatorial primary election and rejoice in the Supreme Court’s validation of their elected Governor, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori. The PDP vehemently denounces the allegations of forgery surrounding the Governor and claims that Chief Ikie’s actions were orchestrated to undermine the party’s primary election process.

According to Dr. Ifeanyi M. Osuoza, State Publicity Secretary of the PDP, “We have it on good authority that Chief Ikie may have obtained his PDP Governorship form by default in Abuja, and despite his initial denials to the contrary, was a dangerous mole planted inside the PDP by Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, in cahoots with certain detractors and other mischievous elements, for the sole purpose of sabotaging our guber primary election and ultimately making a mountain out of a molehill with their forgery allegation, after their comprehensive defeat at the primaries and the general election.”

In light of their triumph, the PDP calls upon Chief Ikie to promptly settle the fine imposed by the court. Failure to comply may lead to a reconsideration of his appeal and a reopening of the allegations against him.

As the truth unfolds, Novwe Ikie’s denial of being a mole sheds new light on the political landscape, signifying a definitive turning point in this ongoing saga.
