The faction of Urhobo Progress Union, UPU, led by Chief Tuesday Onoge, has said that the Urhobo nation owes no one an apology on its resolve to vote for all candidates of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the coming general elections.
Alhaji Mumakai-Unagha, National Publicity Secretary of UPU, stated this at the Ekpan, Uvwie Local Government area, home of Chief Onoge while addressing a crowd of youths from all 24 Urhobo kingdoms, who converged there.
According to Onoge, the Urhobos have not benefitted from the present administration to justify further support for President Goodluck Jonathan, maintaining that the administration has instead humiliated and brought hardship to Urhobo nation.
“President Jonathan is our brother from the South-South, but voting on sentiments in the past has done us no good. Change is sweeping across the country and Urhobo which has suffered mockery and neglect under our so called South-South brother’s administration, cannot be left out of the coming change”, he said.
