Delta majority leader berates group over allegation of poor representation


Delta State House of Assembly

The Majority Leader of Delta State House of Assembly, Mr. Tim Owhefere (PDP, Isoko North), has debunked allegation of poor representation recently levelled against him by a group, Isoko for Development.

The President of the group, Mr. Iruoghene Ufi, had advised Owhefere of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to forget his fourth term ambition for not giving his constituents good representation after spending three consecutive terms as a member of the Delta State House of Assembly.

The lawmaker, who spoke in Asaba yesterday, slammed those behind the group, who he said, were bent on heating up the polity in Isoko North Local Council, stressing that their inflammatory statements were capable of pitching the people against one another.


He insisted that no such group exists in Isokoland and that the allegations against his person were capable of eliciting negative reactions from his teeming supporters and his people.

He said: “I view the outburst of the non-existent Isoko for Development group as unfortunate and worrisome. Even the name Mr. Iruoghene Ufi who signed as President of the group is fake.

This campaign of calumny is being taken too far and I know that my supporters will get to the root of the matter at least to know those sponsoring the publications.

How can you sit down and put together falsehood against a serving member of the state legislature and push them out for public consumption all in the name of politics.”

The majority leader added that he had provided quality representation to the people of Isoko North.

He said: “My achievements both at the floor of the house and physical development attracted to my constituency are verifiable. I am in constant touch with my people. I am always in my constituency, virtually every week. I love them and they love me. They have remained unequivocal in their support.

So, anyone sponsoring lies against me because he wants to contest in 2019 is wasting his time because the Isoko are too intelligent and discerning to be deceived for selfish reasons.”
