PROMINENT Urhobo political leaders under the aegis of Delta Central Good Governance Forum (DCGGF) Friday described as laughable, the story that some Urhobo sons in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are interested in the governorship seat in 2019, saying the matter should not even be discussed as it shows how petty those behind the story have become.
Rising from an emergency meeting in Sapele, the leaders advised critics of the government and paid writers to contextualize their statements before rushing to the press.
“These writers and those behind them are either ignorant of the cordial relationship existing between the top PDP leaders or have chosen to play to the gallery for pecuniary gains” the leaders said.
In a statement issued by the Spokesperson of DCGGF, Chief Maxwell Agofure, the leaders said detractors were bent on creating crisis in the state.
“It is obvious that some individuals in the state intend to expose top government functionaries to ridicule, hatred and contempt” the leaders said.
The leaders praised the Delta State House of Assembly Speaker for using his knowledge acquired through experience and education for the advancement of the state.
They also applauded Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for the rapid improvement in the state’s economic fortunes. .
”We will like to inform Deltans at home and abroad that contrary to what the spoilers are saying, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa and Chief Igbuya are working together to deliver the dividends of democracy to the good people of Delta State.”
Caring about the principles of fairness, justice and equity, the leaders vowed to rally round Governor Okowa and ensure his victory in 2019.
