A governorship aspirant in Delta State, Chief Ovie Omo-Agege, says the incumbent governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, is the greatest mistake ever made by political leaders of Urhobo extraction.
He said he was one of those who made the mistake of working towards the enthronement Uduaghan as governor in 2007 and reiterated that he was out to make correction.
Omo-Agege, who spoke when he visited the Ewu, country home of former speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Rt.
Hon. Pius Akpo Ewherido, said, “Big mistakes can be made but most mistakes are not irreversible”. He held that the governor has rubbished the Urhobo notwithstanding their numerical strength in the state.
The aspirant lamented that some Urhobo political leaders go to beg for money from the governor at the expense of their people, saying, “These leaders can not be relied upon in terms of defending the corporate image of the Urhobo people”.
He said he had no doubt that Ewherido was one of the political leaders who had the interest of the Urhobo people at heart.
