Asaba—TWO prominent Deltans, a former Head of Service in the defunct Bendel State, Chief Patrick Onyeobi and former Presidential aide and Commissioner for Economic Planning in the state, Chief Clement Ofuani, have called on the political class, especially the opposition, to stop overheating the polity, which they said was not in the interest of the country.

Chief Onyeobi, in a statement to mark the New Year, said that politicians should not overheat the polity by their conduct, thus creating the impression that politics was synonymous with crisis.
He said: “Majority of our people just want to be left alone to continue to manage their poverty in peace.”

Ofuani also spoke in the same vein at his country home in Ubulu-Okiti, Delta State, saing: “What we have now is an extra-democratic means, which is not good enough for us as a country and people.”
