UPU congratulates Okowa, Urhobo lawmakers
The Urhobo Progress Union Worldwide (UPU) has congratulated the Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa on his re-election for a second term.
In a statement issued by President General of the union, Olorogun Moses Taiga, it urged Okowa to use his second tenure to bring more development to the Urhobo, in particular, and Delta in general.
“The Urhobo Nation expects more development projects from the government in the next four years,” Taiga said.
The UPU also congratulated lawmakers from Delta Central, who emerged victorious at the Federal and state House of Assembly polls, urging them to always promote Urhobo interest and work towards greater development of Urhoboland.
In addition, Taiga urged all those who lost in the elections and are aggrieved to seek legal redress.
“The Nigerian electoral system is not perfect and you have every right to go to court if you feel aggrieved, but every action you take should be legal.
“There should be no more violence because we have lost too many people to electoral already,” he added.
