Chief Kingsley Esiso’s ambition of becoming Delta State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chairman for another term received a huge jolt on Monday when Sapele political leaders nominated former Sapele Local Government Chairman, Hon Godwin Atose as the choice candidate for the position.

The Delta State PDP chairmanship position is zoned to Sapele Local Government Area.

In a letter sent to Delta State governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, the leaders cited high handedness, selfishness and divide and rule policy of the chairman, Mr. Kingsley for all the troubles in the Delta State PDP.

“We regret we are unable to concede for a second term tenure in office for the out-going PDP State Chairman, Chief Kingsley Esiso” the leaders said.
