The Urhobo Elders and Leaders of the All Progressive Congress (APC) on Sunday, September 9, 2018 stormed the residence of the Delta State APC Leader, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor in their large numbers begging him to contest the Delta Central Senatorial Position in the forthcoming general election, just as they presented the Senate form to him.

The Urhobo Elders led by Chief Sylvester Kowho while appealing to Emerhor on behalf other elders and leaders, said there is vacuum in the Delta Central Senatorial Seat, stressing that; “The person we have there in the Senate is a rascal and disgrace to Urhobo nation; and we are saying that we want a change in the Urhobo Senate position. And we want our Delta State APC Leader, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor to takeover the Delta Central Senatorial Position. We want him to go there to make a change for the Urhobo nation. We beg you, Olorogun to accept our plea and we have taken the pain to buy you the Senate form and we hereby present it to you. Please accept it.”

In response, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor who was surprised over the decision of the Urhobo APC Elders to purchase a Senate form for him, thanked the elders for the gesture, saying, “I have heard you. I am from Delta Central and I’m the leader of APC in Delta State. Delta Central is the heart beat of APC as you know; the representation Delta Central must represent, must be to the interest of Urhobo and Delta State. We have the current representative; but as the elders said, the present Senator is not representing Urhobo nation well and he is not reflecting the culture of the Urhobo in Abuja”.

He added; “What we hear is rascality, thuggery. We don’t hear diplomacy, we don’t hear negotiation. He is even creating problems for President Muhammadu Buhari he claims he is supporting. But we will go there to represent Urhobo to solve problems and work with Mr. President; and do things in a way that he (Buhari) can implement his agenda; that is what we will do.

“But when they have come to ask me to run, you know it is a serious matter; they bought the form worth N7Million by themselves and presented to me.

“I have heard them and I am going to consult my immediate family and my political advisers because the form has a deadline and it is a call to duty to come and give better representation to the people of Delta Central in Abuja”, he noted.



    • Emerhor will win the APC primaries bcos Agege only defected to the APC, when he won in the labour party, so I Believe Agege will not get the support of the majority of the APC delegates but Emerhor has their support right from when he contested as the party gubernatorial aspirant in 2015, Agege knows and that’s why he is advocating for indirect primaries. Bcos the delegates are not on his side, if it gets worst Agege may end up challenging the outcome of the APC primaries in court. Just my own point of view. Thanks

  1. Otega is a respectable politician just as Ogboru is an honourable man, but the irony of Otega is to allow himself to be misdirected, misguided and be used by the divide and rule cabals to share the mandate of the Urhobos,,Daddy Otega. Will be more honourable, if he join force with Ogboru , Agege and other Urhobo politicians via the open association of the UPU and Ovies to deliver Urhobos from these total neglect and maginilization in governance,One Love

  2. I’m so sorry dat you allow your self to be used by those who don’t like Urhobo people and are trying to divide us by all means. Thank God they will not succeed in their evil plans.

  3. Otega emperor Why can’t you not be ashamed of yourself in any time you are to contest election you cannot even when your local government you are still talking when men are talking the only man who can represent urhobo is barrister ovie omo-agege, emerhor should go and sat were contain him…..emerhor you are a the most biggest donkey?

  4. Olorogun O’Tega Emero is a strong destroyer and spoiler of Urhobo nation. He is not worthy to be an Urhobo son. He is a disgrace and disappointment to Urhobo nation. Shame to those who bought the form and presented to him. Urhobo sons and daughters will shame them in 2019. Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, a.k.a the Senator of the Masses and Chief Great Ovedje Ogboru, a.k.a the people’s general, carry go. The Urhobo nation is behind you.

  5. is this man not ashame that even what he scored in 2015 as governorship candidate of apc even when buhari’s victory would have boosted him is not even half of what ovie omo-agege scored in delta central.pls let his political career dies and be buried.
