James Ibori, the former governor of Delta state is now blessed with a new identity.
He is quietly being known as the main man at a-list Shindigs.
The new image is increasingly pushing away talks and thoughts of his spell in Uk prison as it increases.
Always attired to stand apart – but never excessively flash – Ibori is quietly but surely becoming the new signature of big-name attendance at high brow events.
From the wedding of the daughter’s Senate President Bukola Saraki and Orji Uzor Kalu and that of the son of John Abebe plus Rasaq Okoya’s super exclusive birthday bash, the former Governor of Delta state was there.
And not just as one of the attendees but a recognised and honoured guest on all the occasions.
“A testament of the new identity of the former governor who was very much vilified when he was incarcerated” an observer pointed out, insisting it also shows the growing power and influence of the politician as he regains his pre-conviction stature in the “scheme of things”.
