Amb. ( Chief ) Godwin Okporoko, Executive Assistant on Security Matters to Delta State Government, has insisted that no body could possibly fault the dissolution of Ughelli South Youth Council’s executive because the stipulated three years tenure of the council has expired.
Okporoko, made the clarification on Thursday, while reacting to what he described as malicious and misleading allegations by an indegine against him (Okporoko) over the dissolution of the Council’s executives.
Okporoko said: ” Indigenes and bonafide youths in Ughelli South Local Government supported the dissolution because their three years tenure had long expired. They were also given extension 18 months to prepare for next council election which had also expired. Let me emphasize that youths in Ughelli South are peaceful, united and would not accept any person who is not from Ughelli South to hijack what belongs to them”.
He noted that the respective political blocks in Ughelli South have been mandated to embark on selection of new executives for the body which will be inaugurated after the completion of the process.
Okporoko cautioned all those spreading falsehood in an attempt to mislead the Delta State Government and general public to desist, adding that ” I will not join issues with them but will advice the personality to rethink and respect the decision already taken by the generality of Ughelli South youths”.
He said peace loving people of Ughelli South will not allow them to cause trouble and crisis among the youths in Ughelli South Local Government.
It will be recalled that youths leaders and representatives from various political blocks in Ughelli South Local government had on Wednesday at Otu-Jeremi, unanimously dissolved the executive of Ughelli South Youth Council to pave way for election of new executive.
Those in attendance at meeting were Chief Godwin Okporoko, BOT Chairman, Pastor Aye Michael, BOT Secretary; Chief Denis Obogie, BOT member; Comrade Nena Balogun ( Olomu Kingdom President) Hon.Happy Gbeke ( Ughievwen Kingdom President) , Comrade Royal S.Eyarebe ( Ewu Kingdom President) and former vice chairman, secretary and other members of the dissolved executives.
