Uduaghan Salutes James Ibori @60


Former governor of Dela State, Dr Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan, has felicitated with his political godfather and his predecessor in office, Chief James Onanefe Ibori, who clocked 60 years of age on Saturday, 4th of August 2018 (today).

In a goodwill message written by Uduaghan, who is presently vying for a senatorial seat in Delta State, he said;

“Sometimes you have difficulty in getting the adequate words to describe someone that has been part of your life from birth. I am in such a situation right now.


My dear leader and brother, as you mark your 60th birthday today, I will try not to describe you. It’s a day to reflect on where you are coming from, be thankful to God and pray for a more relaxed, peaceful and better future.


The circumstances of your birth led to your being named Onanefe. And you have lived up

Chief James Ibori
Dr Uduaghan

to the name. At 60, you have experienced what many will not experience even when they are 90 years.


God has been gracious and merciful to you, even when men have disappointed you.
My prayer is for God to give you more Grace, be more merciful unto you and grant you more favour especially in wisdom and good health.
Enjoy your day.”
