Urhobo youths caution against discrediting Okowa in Delta


Ifeanyi Okowa

Urhobo Youth Leaders Association (UYLA) has cautioned political leaders and stakeholders in Delta Central Senatorial District against discrediting Governor Ifeanyi Okowa through what it called “a well-oiled campaign of calumny designed to pit the governor against the interest of the zone in the politics of 2023.”

At a press conference yesterday in Ughelli, the UYLA President, Tony Ofoni, deplored a situation where “over 10 members of the State Executive Council are fighting to take over from the incumbent”, stating that the development was a huge distraction.


He lauded the dissolution of the state cabinet, noting that it was a good omen for smooth governance

“The dissolution is therefore a laudable master-stroke to keep the ship of governance in the direction of progress,” the youth leader said.

Ofoni, who flayed the attacks and counter-attacks from some indigenes of the area, added: “This is not the acceptable way of fighting the common course of Urhobo people.”

He continued: “Those characters, who are fond of making noise in favour of one leader or the other, cannot be invested with the garb of patriots fighting for the cause of Delta central.
