Delta: Urhobo Leaders Zone Speakership Slot To Ethiope, Say Oborevwori Tenure Ends In June


                    
                         • Speaker Oborevwori

Some notable Urhobo leaders have faulted the subtle clamour by the Speaker of the Delta State House of Assemby, Hon. Sherriff Oborevwori, to retain his office as Speaker even for the forthcoming 7th Legislative state Assembly, The Daily Crucible learnt on Monday.

Sources close to the Urhobo leaders said the ethnic group viewed the alleged self-perpetuating plot of Oborevwori as annoying and inconsiderate, vowing  to ensure that the lawmaker representing Ethiope West emerged the next Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly. 

The Daily Crucible further gathered that the leaders, in Ugheli, voiced out their condemnation of Oborevwori's quest to retain the speaker's position beyond June, stressing that the moves portend unhealthy legislative development.

A source quoted one of the Urhobo leaders who was annoyed over the matter to have said,
"all is not well with the Delta State House of Assembly."

According to the source, the Urhobo leaders  met and zoned the Speakership seat to Ethiope Federal Constituency. 

They decried an earlier statement credited to Sheriff Oborevwori to the effect that their kinsman representing Ethiope West cannot be speaker in Delta State and advised the newly elected members of the forth coming 9th State Legislative Assembly to shoot down any plot aimed at foisting Sheriff Oborevwori on them.

They also appealed to the People's Democratic Party (PDP) leaders to wade into the matter and prevail on Oborevwori to drop the ambition for others.

"Asking Mr. Sheriff Oborevwori to continue as speaker after June is a total disregard for the interest of our people. We know the members of the Delta State House of Assembly cannot allow it.," they said.
