The Majority Leader of the Delta State House of Assembly, Hon Tim Owhefere has said that those behind a faceless group that is bent on heating up the polity in Isoko North would be disgraced, stressing that their inflammatory statements were capable of pitching the people against one another.
Hon Owhefere while reacting to a publication by a group with the name “Isoko for Development”, noted that no such group exist in Isoko land and that the allegations against his person in the said publication can elicit negative reactions from his teaming supporters and the good people of Isoko North Constituency, whom he represents.
“I view the outburst of the non existent Isoko for Development group as unfortunate and worrisome. Even the name Iruoghene Ufi that signed as President of the group is fake. This campaign of calumny is being taking too far and I know that my supporters will get to the root of the matter at least to know those behind the publication. How can you sit down and put together falsehood against a serving member of the state legislature and push them out for public consumption all in the name of politics”. Hon Owhefere asked in a statement.
The Lawmaker explained that he had provided quality representation to the people of Isoko North, stressing “my achievements both at the floor of the house and physical development attracted to my constituency are verifiable. I am in constant touch with my people. I am always in my constituency, virtually every week. I love them and they love me. They have remained unequivocal in their support. So anyone sponsoring lies against me because he wants to contest in 2019 is wasting his time because the Isokos are too intelligent and discerning to be deceived for selfish reasons”.
Hon Owhefere noted that the issues of lack of mega projects in Isoko North, poor representation and projects abandonment raised in the publication were laughable, maintaining that when the time comes to again present his score cards to constituents, he will do so with all sense of responsibility as there 6are a lot to showcase.
The Majority Leader thanked the people of Isoko North for their support to the state government and charged them never to loose faith in the PDP led administration, saying that he would remain committed to the growth and development of the constituency.
