The Delta Central Equity Group (DCEG), has strongly warned the opposition party in the State, All Progressives Congress (APC) to desist from its alleged plans to unleash violence during the 2019 election in order to rig in its candidates in the different elective positions in the state.
The Urhobo youth group while cautioning against such tactics by the APC, vowed to resist the plot and plotters, and protect the thriving peace in the state.
These positions by DCEG were contained in Press Statement signed by its Convener, Hon. Morris Idiovwa who reiterated the group’s mission to ensure equity within the three senatorial districts of the state in occupying the Governorship position for two terms.
According to the statement, made available to ASABA METRO, Delta Central Equity Group declared that,
“Our message to the opposition is simple; Urhobo youths will not allow peace be truncated in Delta state because of elections. We shall stand against any plot and plotters of chaos in our state.
“We have good intels on their plans, working with their national party chairman to hail the state into crisis so that they easily perfect their rigging and fraud, but that will never happen. All Urhobo youths are currently being sensitised and preparing to resist their plans to plunge Delta into crisis because of their selfish interest.
“We have details of a plot by the APC to plunge Delta Central into crisis during the election as a precursor for the INEC to declare the election inconclusive and call for a rerun. We will like to warn them and their strategists to desist from such plots, this is niether Osun nor Ekiti.” Idiovwa stressed.
The group warned, “they will be met with stiff resistance as no son of Delta Central is ready to lose his life for any selfish politician. Equity must be allowed to thrive”.
The statement further read that, “Like we said at the inauguration of the Delta Central Equity Group (DCEG), we are of the opinion and interest that all contestants should come out to contest their offices of choice without any drama or use of dirty tactics, much less violence and chaos.
“Our position still remains that all parts of Delta are equal stakeholders in ‘Project Delta’, as such the Delta North candidate, being His Excellency, Senator (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa, be backed by all regions of our state to continue his works as governor of our state by ensuring to vote him again at the polls next month.
“We hold no ill-feeling against any one, but we shall stiffly resist any politician or political party that think it can use violence to rob our people of their franchise. We shall meet them with whatever they come with. A word should be enough for the wise.” The group advised.
