Former Rivers Deputy Governor, Engineer Tele Ikuru has become the first to officially acquire a form as an aspirant in the Rivers PDP to contest the gubernatorial race.

Ikuru whose name has featured prominently in the political rumour mill as a possible contender reportedly picked up the form from the National Secretariat of the PDP in Abuja.

The former deputy who served under Governor Rotimi Amaechi has not been seen in public for a while.

He was reportedly out of the country when the fight between the former National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus and forces within the party opposed to his re-election ensued.

Ikuru is back, but this time to pursue his gubernatorial ambition.

He was spotted in Port Harcourt Wednesday night at a stakeholders meeting.
