Okowa gets Urhobo support for second term

By Jimitota Onoyume & Festus Ahon

PROMINENT Urhobo personalities under the auspices of Urhobo Progressives Network, UPN,  have called for the re-election of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for a second term, stressing that all  ethnic groups in the state should respect the  power rotation arrangement that had seen the governorship position rotated  among the three senatorial district since 1999.

Addressing journalists in Warri, Delta State, Director General of the group, Chief Emmanuel Okumagba, flanked by other officers of the group hailed Governor Okowa for his achievement so far, adding that the governor had transformed several communities  to modern cities .

He said, “Given the constitutional provision which allows for two terms of four years each and coupled with the unwritten agreement for the  rotation of the governorship position among the three senatorial districts,  our stands is that UPN, unequivocally supports Okowa to be re-elected for a second tenure in line with existing facts.”
