Delta State Local Government chairmen threw decorum to the wind when they openly disagreed on the sharing formula of the dollars stuffed inside a Ghana Must Go bag allegedly given to them by former Vice President and Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), presidential aspirant in the forthcoming 2023 general elections, Atiku Abubakar.

SaharaReporters gathered that Atiku who was in Asaba Delta State on Friday gave them the money after a consultation meeting with the delegates at the Unity hall, Government House, Asaba.

In the process of sharing the dollars shortly after the departure of the presidential aspirant and his entourage, it became rowdy as the council chairmen and other delegates who were seated at a corner were seen in an open disagreement among themselves over the sharing formula of Atiku’s largesse.
It was observed that shortly after the initial disagreement had calmed down, another round started among the council chairmen.
However, the situation was finally brought under control by leadership of the Association of Local Government of Nigeria, (ALGON) and the sharing formula was later accepted among the council chairmen.
Addressing the delegates, Atiku had solicited for votes even as he promised a better future for the people if elected as the president of Nigeria.
Also speaking, the Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, who commended Atiku, said that the Delta State delegates shall vote for the best aspirant at the end of the day.
