The political supremacy battle between ODM party leader Raila Odinga and the Migori County Governor Okoth Obado reportedly started way back in 2013 election when Hon. Obado contested for the ODM party ticket but was “denied,” forcing him to vie on a people’s Democratic Party (PDP) ticket instead.
In 2013, the same Obado contested for the seat of governor in Migori when the nominations were just approaching, his name was allegedly removed from the register.
Recently the governor announced plans to revamp the People Democratic Party, an outfit on whose ticket he won the governorship in 2013.
The second-term governor said he will be rolling out an aggressive campaign to position himself as the leader of the Luo community.
He also disclosed his plans to ensure a new political formation is birthed in Nyanza region to rival Mr Odinga’s ODM party.
Mr Obado hinted that the Omingo Magara-led Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) on whose ticket he was elected as the governor in 2013, would be his party next year.
The Migori Governor Both Obado had recently renewed his supremacy attacks on ODM leader Raila Odinga, vowing to have a new political formation for Nyanza while at the same time rubbishing the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).
Mr Obado, who spoke during a house-warming ceremony for his Director of Administration, Mr Dominic Akugo, in Uriri Central Ward, said he was glad the much publicized “reggae” had stopped.
