Leaders condemn Delta Speaker's rivals

16 February 2016, 21:49

Abuja - Prominent leaders in Sapele Local Government Area have denounced reported attacks on Delta State House of Assembly Speaker, Monday Igbuya, by his rivals.

Chairman of Sapele Development Forum (SDF), Dr Michael Asaboro, berated those allegedly blackmailing the Speaker.

“Mister Speaker should not be a subject of undue attack. He should be supported and applauded in his quest to bring about economic and social development in Delta State, particularly Sapele-Okpe community. We ask blackmailers to look for cheap targets elsewhere,” Asaboro said.

The leaders identified the speaker’s rising profile, particularly his emergence as a major figure in the state, his commitment to principles in the practice of politics, the rule of law as well as pledge for fairness and justice as attributes that brought him into collision with the “enemies” of democracy and development in Sapele Local Government Area.

“Chief Monday Igbuya has done Okpe kingdom proud. He has respect for the Almighty God and passion for the people. He is against forms of behaviour that is alien to or subversive of the rule of law,” the leaders said in Amukpe.

People’s Democratic Party member Igbuya has been linked to several fraud allegations since his election as Member Representing Sapele Constituency in the last general poll.

The All progressives Congress contested the outcome.

They commended the Delta State Speaker for providing through private and public initiatives the necessary environment for the development of youths in the area.

“Sapele has never had it so good in terms of provision of amenities and infrastructure,” the leaders said.
