By Jon Egie
A political pressure group, Ughelli North Grassroots Politicians (UNGP) have expressed gratitude to the governor of Delta State, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa for his support to the speedy recovery of their Chairman, Chief Pius Ovbije (POC) during the period of his travail as a victim of fire accident.
In a Communique issued at the end of an enlarged meeting of the group held on Sunday, June 28 in Ughelli, the group thanked Deltans, particularly the Urhobo people of Delta Central senatorial district for voting largely for Okowa during the April 11, 2015 governorship election.
They assured that going by the political track record of Dr Ifeanyi Okwa who is a grassroots politician with rich experience in politics and governance, the Urhobo people will not regret the mandate given to the governor.
The group used the medium to appreciate Chief Pius Ovbije who in spite of his travails was able to mobilise the entire members of the group from across the seven clans of the local government area, even from his sick bed, to deliver Okowa, and hence reaffirmed a vote of confidence in the leadership of Chief Pius Ovbije.
“We wish to specially express gratitude to Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, Governor of Delta State, for the numerous assistance and support he gave to our Chairman, Chief Pius Ovbije during the period of his travail and pledge our unalloyed loyalty and support for the success of his administration.
“We pray God to richly bless, guide and grant you the Wisdom of Solomon to steer the ship of Delta State” the Communique said.
The Communique was signed by Hon Bestman Itive (Agbarha clan), Barr Elvis Ekorhi (Agbarho clan), Mr Nathan Oremu (Evwreni clan), Comrade Dennis Aboro (Ogor clan), Mr Onakpoma Ovie Joseph (Orogun clan), Hon Jowho Akise (Ughelli clan), Mr Godwin Okpidiama (Uwheru clan), Mr Vincent Egajivwie (Secretary), Princess Queen Adjarho (Woman Leader) and Mr Rocky Okikie (Member).
