Isoko group vows to stop lawmaker’s fourth term bid
A group, Isoko for Development, has threatened to stop a lawmaker in the Delta State House of Assembly, Mr. Tim Owhefere, from contesting for the fourth time.
In a statement at the weekend in Asaba, the group’s President, Iruoghene Ufi, gave reasons why the people from the 13 wards that make up the constituency would not support him in the next election.
They alleged that Owhefere, representing Isoko North, has not impacted positively on his constituency.
Owhefere, who is a member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), is the majority leader in the House.
Ufi cited his failed campaign promises, zero consultation and non-accountability as some reasons.
He gave other reasons as the lack of mega projects in Isoko North, lack of empowerment, poor representation and projects abandonment.
Others are not having the people’s interest at heart, not being proactive, and being high-handed.
“For the three consecutive tenures that Owhefere had been elected into the House, he has not fulfilled any campaign promise to the people who laboured for him and his party during the election.
“While other members consult their constituents from time to time, Owhefere is the direct opposite.
