UGHELLI—SPECIAL Assistant to the Delta State Governor on Political Matters, Dr. Andrew Ekakitie, yesterday, said the people of Abraka did not endorse Chief Ovie Omo-Agege as their gubernatorial candidate in the 2011 elections.
Ekakitie, who was reacting to recent media reports that Abraka people had endorsed Chief Omo-Agege, said those who went to pledge their loyalty to Ovie Omo-Agege, were not in any recognised group in the community.
Admitting that there was nothing people going to a candidate of their choice to pledge their loyalty, he said so on behalf of the Abraka community was wrong. He alleged that “no one recognised them as members of PDP in Abraka community.”
According to him, “those who went to give their support to Omo-Agege are not stakeholders of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and should not blackmail Abraka community that Dr. Uduaghan has not met his three-point agenda of human capital development, infrastructural development and peace and security.
“PDP in Abraka community is working assiduously for the re-election of Dr. Uduaghan. The appeal of the group to Omo-Agege to give state House of Assembly to Abraka community is an issue between Agbon and Abraka communities to discuss,” he said.
