He stated that with such qualities, the people of Ndokwa East should be glad, as they will deliver on their mandates to the area if elected.

“We are here to tell you that our great party, the PDP had not made any mistake when we selected our candi­dates. We have selected the best, with good track records of leadership and service to humanity.”

“Look at our lineup of candidates, from the Presiden­tial candidate, Atiku Abubakar, and his Vice-Presidential candidate, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, the Governorship candidate, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, the Deputy Governorship Candidate, Sir Monday Onyeme, the Sena­torial candidate, Hon., Prince Ned Nwoko, the House of Representatives Candidate, Mr. Nnamdi Ezechi, and the House of Assembly Candidate for Ndokwa East, Mr. Emeka Osamuta, all have a track record for good leader­ship and Humanitarian Services.”

He appealed to them not to be deceived by those who had been extorting the people, and those who do nothing but work only to deprive the people of their commonwealth.

“I appeal to you, do not be deceived by those who will take your patrimony, for themselves. PDP will never disappoint you, and we had never disappointed you.”

He stated that such persons should never be trusted, or be given any opportunity to occupy such sensitive offices, as they need better choices which the party had been offering, and will still offer after the election.

THE founder and Chief Executive Officer of ELOHIM Political Foundation, Prince Emmanuel Omote has enjoined eligible voters to support the People’s Democratic Party PDP in the coming 2023 elections.

The Okpe Olomu born businessman cum politician made this appeal yesterday at Agbon Olomu when the Delta State PDP gubernatorial flag bearer, Rt. Hon Francis OBOR­EVWORI stormed Ughelli South with his campaign train.

”The man has done excellently well as the speaker and it is my belief that he is going to transmit same or even greater when he becomes the governor of Delta State.

Prince Omote stated further that citizens of the country will return to their lost days of glory if Atiku Abubakar and Dr Ifeanyi Okowa takeover governance in Nigeria.




THE Egbema Youth Council in Warri North Local Gov­ernment Area and Ovia South West and Ikpoba-Okha Local Government Areas of Edo state, have stated that they owe no allegiance to the Oba of Binin Kingdom, as they are people firmly held together by linguis­tic and cultural affinity with unalloyed allegiance and loyalty to their King, the Agadagba of Egbema Kingdom.

The Egbema Youth Council in a press state­ment in reply to the Coali­tion of Bini Socio-Cultural Group who addressed their revered king as ‘one Meshack Ubabiri’ in an online publication, de­scribed the group as dis­gruntled, misinformed and self-seeking persons under the name ‘Coalition of Benin Socio- Cultural Organization’ headed by one Osazee Amas Edobor.

The statement read, “The group are more like young school leavers practicing the art of writing, and sacrilegiously referred to the Agadagba of Egbema Kingdom, Bini Pere IV, His Royal Majesty Amb. Meshack Eseighotiegha Ubabiri as “one Meshack Ubabiri.” This is to say the least the height of immaturity and unprovoked assault on the entire Egbema Kingdom and the Ijaws of Edo State.

“The architects of these derogatory statements and distortions are probably too young to know or have chosen not to listen to their fathers and the Bini tradi­tional institution who know better on the existence of a distinct ethnic group known as the Ijaws in Edo State, and in particular, a kingdom known as Egbema Kingdom that have existed for as long as man has existed on the face of the earth.

“Whichever is the case, they are well advised to wake up from their slumber and come to the reality of the fact that we exist as a distinct people, who do not need any permission or approval from the Bini people to con­duct our own affairs including the installation and the crowning of our king as we have done just now with the Installation and crowning of His Royal Majesty Meshack Eseighotiegha Ubabiri, Bini Pere lV, Agadagba of Egbema Kingdom, to reign over the throne of his forefathers, on 23rd November, 2022, as rightly published.

The statement reads: “the Kingdom of Egbema, under the leadership of the Agadagba, is gazetted by the gov­ernment of the defunct Bendel State; reference Section 8 of the Bendel State Traditional Rulers and Chiefs Edict 1979. “The gazette gave legal backing to the status of the Agadagba of Egbema Kingdom. Before the formal recognition of the government, we have had several kings spanning over a thousand years. We have lived in our present location for over 1000 years (since about 1170 AD) and no force on earth will change it or relocate us.

“We are a people firmly held together by linguistic and cultural affinity with unalloyed allegiance and loyalty to our King, the Agadagba of Egbema Kingdom. As Africans, we respect the Oba of Bini as the Head of the Bini King­dom, but we owe him no allegiance.

“Before the amalgamation of the Northern and South­ern Protectorates of Nigeria in 1914, we were in this land and also, when the Midwestern region was recreated into Bendel State, till 1991 when Delta was created out of the defunct Bendel State. However, in order to subjugate and dominate our people, the neocolonialists balkanized us by using the river-line delineation in what they called political and administrative convenience to put us in two states.

“The press conference of the Coalition of the Bini group is the hand of Esau and the voice of Jacob. We are not surprised. When HRM Godwin Ogunoyibo, Alagbabunafa III, the Agadagba of Olodiama Kingdom was crowned, the Bini Traditional Council forced the Government of Edo State to issue a similar statement to take position against its own citizens who are of Ijaw ethnic nationality in Edo State. The Ijaws and Nigerians rightly condemned the government’s position on the matter.
