Prof. Muoboghare Reacts As Okowa Swears In New Higher Education Commissioner

The Delta State Commissioner for Higher Education, Prof. Patrick Muoboghare reacts as the governor of Delta State, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa today replaced him with another as the commissioner for higher education in Delta state.

It was reported that governor Okowa, today appointments Dr. Kingsley Ashibuogwu as the new Commissioner for Higher Education in Delta State, replacing Prof Patrick Muoboghare, who has been occupying the said position before today.

In a swift respond to the development, The 70-year retired Professor said he remained ‘Atikulated’ and that he has been asked to go and rest in preparation to go to Abuja with Okowa as vice president in 2023.

Muoboghare dismissed claims that his sack was politically motivated, noting that Okowa whom he had worked closely with for over seven years does not base his judgement on sentiments.

But facts that later emerged on Tuesday evening states that Okowa might have axed him for allegedly fraternizing with Mr. David Edevbie in the race the 2023 governorship election.

Sources hinted that Muoboghare is not on the same page with Okowa on the choice of Mr. Sheriff Oborevwori as the governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in 2023.

It was further learnt that the governor who is the vice presidential candidate of the PDP has been gathering information on the activities of his appointees as far as the 2023 governorship election is concerned to ascertain which of the camps they were supporting.

According to the source, the governor has sufficient evidence against Muoboghare that he is secretly on the camp of Edevbie who recently secured an Abuja High Court judgement disqualifying Oborevwori as candidate of the PDP following discrepancies in his certificates.

Edevbie who came second behind Oborevwori in the May 25 governorship primary, was subsequently declared candidate of the party by the court.

The matter is however before the Court of Appeal in Abuja.
