In the last 15 years, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State has been in a sexual relationship with Mrs. Joan Mrakpor, a former member of the House of Representative and wife of the State Attorney General, Peter Mrakpor. That relationship is about to tear down the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the state, Pointblanknews.com investigations have revealed.
A very diligent investigation carried out by pointblanknews.com shows that while Okowa was Commissioner under the administration of James Ibori, he began a relationship with Mrs. Mrakpor. They both enjoyed each other’s company and Grand Hotel, Asaba, was the usual love nest. At the time, Mrs Mrakpor was married to a popular Abuja based journalist.
Hotel staffs at the Grand Hotel, Asaba, confirmed the activities of Okowa and Mrs. Mrakpor and gave pointblanknews.com a graphic details of how Okowa and his lover frequented the hotel few years back and enjoyed each other’s company.
They also confirmed that Peter Mrakpor whom Okowa’s mistress married, stayed at the Grand Hotel for months and was seen with her several nights.
Mrs. Mrakpor’s first marriage crashed because of her adulterous lifestyle. She later married a medical Doctor. Because she found it hard to end her relationship with Okowa, her second marriage also crashed, pointblanknews.com findings reveal.
She joined politics. Okowa, according to people who know the two lovers, used his influence and secured Mrs. Mrakpor a seat at the Delta State Assembly in 2007.
Pointblanknews.com investigations revealed that before the election’s tribunal in 2007, she met Peter Mrakpor, a lawyer who was married and had his family in Lagos. She engaged Peter for her tribunal matters, moved him from Lagos to Asaba, housed him at the Grand Hotel, Asaba, from where they both started a love affair.
Sources told pointblanknews.com that while the love affairs between the lawmaker and the lawyer was on, she was still in a relationship with Okowa.
Her then lawyer and lover, Peter Mrakpor, lost his marriage and swiftly married the Delta Lawmaker.
Despite the marriage, Okowa and Mrs. Mrakpor continued under the cover of the night. They have love nests in Asaba, Abuja and Lagos where they meet.
Mrs. Mrakpor used her relationship with Okowa to influence a lot of appointments in the state including making her husband the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice in Delta State. And she has continued to peddle that influence in what insiders say sometimes offends the first lady, Dame Edith Okowa.
Sources told Pointblanknews.com that she is now demanding that the 2023 Governorship ticket be handed to her husband who is from Ughelli South since it would be the turn of the Delta Central to produce the next Governor.
Mrs. Mrapkor’s moves have now angered the PDP in the state with the Ibori political family threatening a showdown.
Caught in the middle, Governor Okowa, according to sources, have not been able to calm already tensed nerves and some top PDP members are threatening to back an All Progressive Congress.
