Urhobo elders welcome Delta poll tribunal ruling

19 October 2015, 07:46Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - Some Urhobo leaders have welcomed the dismissal of the petition filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the Delta State National Assembly Election Tribunal sitting in Asaba.

“It is a sign of good things to come to Urhobo land,” spokesperson of Urhobo Unity Forum (UUF), Dr Mudiaga Oghene, said in Ughelli.

The tribunal recently dismissed the APC petition, ruling the party failed to adduce satisfactory, cogent and credible evidence to prove all the grounds of the  petition.

The leaders subsequently congratulated Rt. Hon Ovwigho Igbuya, Speaker of the House of Assembly, on his victory at the tribunal and urged him to continue being the good ambassador of the Urhobo nation.

The organisation hailed him for offering “high quality” service to the state, raising the office of the speaker to greater heights and reaching out to the sick and vulnerable.

UUF also described the Speaker as a “rare gem” and an “honest” lawmaker.

“He is a complete gentleman in the real sense and every Deltan should emulate his steps,” said Oghene.

The Urhobos, numbering 1 million, are the major ethnic group in  the Delta State.
