Immediate past Chairman of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) in Delta state and Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Inter Party Relations, Chief Efe Tobor, has defended his decision to work for the victory of the Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Rt. Hon Sheriff Oborevwori, now the State Governor-elect.

Chief Tobor, while reacting to his expulsion by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the NNPP over alleged anti-party activity, said he quite realized the consequence of his action, but damned the consequence.

He said his decision was driven by an unbiased judgement and interest rather than ethics, stressing that it was obvious that Sheriff Oborevwori was the best candidate for the Delta Governorship election and no other candidate, including that of the NNPP, Goodnews Agbi, had the capacity to stop him.

The Governor’s aide explained that he had notified his party of his decision to quit, emphasizing that the timing did not matter to him.

Chief Tobor said prior to the election, the State Secretary of the party, Edward Ofomona, also an SA to the Governor on Political Matters, who joined other members to work for different political parties, petitioned against him to the National Headquarters of the NNPP, adding that he had fallen out of favour with the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Agbo Major, all of which fueled his expulsion. 

He maintained that he had no regrets working for Sheriff because he was convinced that Delta needed him to continue with the good works of the outgoing Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa.

Chief Tobor confirmed that he had left the NNPP and would soon unveil his new party, insisting that he would remain in the opposition to be able to criticize the ruling party when necessary.
