The Ughelli North Economic and Development Group has alerted the government over the alleged superimposition of Mr. Peter Ogedegbe to represent them in the recently dissolved board of the Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission, DESOPADEC.
A statement by its National Coordinator, Comrade Clement Unior alleged that Ogedegbe “fraudulently claimed to have hailed from Ughelli North paternally and maternally which gave him the opportunity to sit in the board of the just dissolved commission.
“But we make bold to tell the world that Peter Ogedegbe whose records are not far fetch is paternally from Ophori-Olomu and maternally from Ovwor-Olomu,” Ughelli South Local Government Area of the State.
Continuing, the statement said: “we therefore advise Peter Ogedegbe and his cohorts to desist from laying claim to the area otherwise they will be dragged to the anti-graft agencies.
The group recalled in dismay that Ughelli North lost its seat in DESOPADEC in the last board while Ughelli South had two persons; Johnson Boro from Ughievwwen clan and Peter Ogedegbe from Olomu clan.
Comrade Unior however appealed to the state governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan to guard against such mistake in order to create a sense of belonging to indigenes of Ughelli north council.
However, all efforts to reach Peter Ogedegbe for his comments proved abortive.
