$10m scandal: I don”t do mistresses – Okowa

Governor of Delta state Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa has debunked widespread rumour that he was the South South governor said to have been swindled out of $10 million  by a US based actress, Georgina Onuoha.


"People who know me, I have a pattern of life. My party the PDP has issued an official statement on the issue. I gave my life to Christ several years ago and I know who I am…If Jesus Christ could be accused, who am I?" he retorted, while fielding questions from journalists at the 2017 Quarterly Media Interaction at Government House Asaba.

It is the first public address Okowa has given the issue but he quickly swung to other issues, including his SMART agenda and return of former Delta governor James Ibori, who served time in a UK jail on allegations of misappropriation.


Okowa said he was not aware of any plans that Ibori and his political dynasty were moving to join the APC reuniting with his family, not politics.
