Omene urged to step down as UPU chief

Ughelli—A social critic and public affairs commentator, Elder Godsday Ederovie has urged embattled UPU leader, Chief Joe Omene to step down from his position instead of waiting to be disgraced out of office by the Urhobo people.

In a statement issued to newsmen yesterday in Ughelli, Ederovie claimed that the Urhobo people have lost confidence in the genuineness of Omene to safeguard Urhobo interests and now cast doubts over his alleged frequent visits to Aso Rock.

Edorovie insisted that the Uvwiamuge Declaration remains sacrosanct among all genuine Urhobo sons and daughters and that any attempt to tamper with it amounts to a betrayal of Urhobo worldwide.

“If Ogboru of Labour Party and Okowa of PDP are both featuring President Jonathans picture on their campaign posters and billboards, then something fishy must be going on. Does it mean that Mr. President is supporting two candidates for a single position? Who is fooling who?”

According to Ederovie, O’tega Emerhor of APC remains the only uncompromised candidate capable of delivering Delta State from PDP misrule.
