PDP stakeholders make case for Urhobo governor

A group, Peoples Democratic Party Stakeholders, has said
that any attempt to deny the Urhobo nation the right to
produce the next governor of Delta State in 2015 would rob
PDP of a landslide victory in the presidential elections.
Briefing newsmen in Lagos, Mr. Godwin Mgbabago and Mr.
Joe Adigwe said only Obaisi Ovie Omo-Agege who hails from
Delta Central could deliver victory to the party.
The group said: ‘’Those fronting and or anointing a neophyte
for the governorship seat do not mean well for both PDP
and President Goodluck Jonathan.
“On the basis of demography and electoral value, everyone
knows the Urhobos control over 60 percent of the voting
strength in Delta State.
“Yet, they have been out of power in the state for eight years
and their representation in the Federal Government has
been limited to two appointments compared to Delta North,
which has over 14 appointments.
“If the Urhobo lose the governorship ticket, their block votes
will be lost to the President, robbing the party of the
landslide victory.”
