ASABA—Coalition for Media Politics and Governance, CMPG, has advised the President General of Urhobo Progress Union Worldwide, UPU, Olorogun Moses Taiga and his deputy, Captain Anthony Onorharigho, to resign and tender unreserved public apology in three national dailies for usurping the functions of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its organs.
The group, a political heir of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in a statement, yesterday, , by its Convener and Chairman, Olorogun Fred Oghenesivbe, and Deputy Chairman, Delta South, Toju Ekengbuda, said the call has become necessary, so as to immediately restore the integrity of the Urhobo socio-cultural organisation and engender healthy political contest among the governorship aspirants in the state.
The group advised Urhobo nation of Delta Central senatorial district to be weary of elements fanning the ember of disunity through endorsements of governorship aspirants, urging the union to immediately walk back the unconstitutional and unwarranted endorsement of an unpopular governorship aspirant, Olorogun David Edevbie.
“Rejecting Edevbie is simply to ensure that Delta State money will remain in Delta for the development of the state and for the wellbeing of the people.
“It is, therefore, very important to ensure that he does not emerge as PDP gubernatorial flag bearer next month. This is very important and PDP delegates are the patriots we are trusting at this time to make it happen.”
