WARRI—The President-General of Urhobo Progress Union, UPU, worldwide, Olorogun Moses Taiga, has called on Urhobo people of Delta State to be vigilant and vote for only candidates who will protect Urhobo interest and work for the progress of the Urhobo nation.
In a New Year message, Olorogun Taiga said: “As we move towards the general election, I again reiterate that no single Urhobo blood should be shed on the altar of politics. We must be tolerant of each other and practice politics as refined people.
“We are one; a people of common identity and common ancestry, so when you hurt one, you hurt all.”
Taiga called for greater unity, cooperation and mutual trust among Urhobo people in consolidating the gains made in the past years. While extending warm wishes to Urhobo and other Nigerians on the dawn of the New Year, he assured that the UPU “will continue to take determined actions that will ensure a greater Urhobo land.”
“The UPU is strengthened by the commitment, love, patriotism and selflessness shown by the Urhobo nation in the past two years of my administration, and I remain committed to fulfilling my electoral promises to take the Urhobo nation to greater heights. In the New Year, I look forward to seeing the Urhobo people exhibiting greater unity, more love, understanding, cooperation and mutual trust. By so doing, we will sustain the achievements of the past, surmount any challenges in our midst and certainly make more progress in 2019.
“We must focus on a better future. We must collectively eschew any form of divisiveness and live in peace with one another and with our neighbours. As we face up to 2019, I wish all of you a happy, safe and productive New Year. May God bless you all.”
