Oarhe who emerged consensus candidate of Social Democratic Party (SDP) at her primary election held 29, November, 2014 for the House of Representatives, Owan federal constituency, Edo state, we gathered is presently call by his party to step down his ambition for another party man, a decision he is finding it difficult to accept but may be ready to work with.
It was learnt that the A.P.C and P.D.P is on the likelihood to key into this logjam because the S.D.P is a strong force to contend with in the Owan federal constituency going by existing rotational formula that favours the turn of an Owan west candidacy to present the next House of Representatives member for Owan federal constituency at the national assembly.
A telephone call put across to him, Oarhe said, "it is clear that S.D.P will sweep out A.P.C and pothole the umbrella of P.D.P to win all elective positions across Edo north based on our people oriented socio-welfare manifestoes and credibility of candidate we present hence my determination to remain a loyal party faithful of SDP is unshakable."
