Another Group Tackles E.K. Clark over Attack on Orubebe

Chief Edwin Clark

A group by the name Delta Focus Group (DFG), has condemned in strong terms the statement made by Ijaw leader, Chief Edwin Kiagbodo Clark that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission should probe the speaker of Delta State House of Assembly (DTHA), Hon. Victor Ochei over the Independent Power Plant project, noting that it was capable of inciting the public against the speaker.
In a statement made available to FrontiersNews Monday in Ughelli, signed by the Publicity Secretary of the group, Mr. Saturday Mofoye, described the statement as unwarranted of an elder statesman like Chief Clark whom he advised to play more of fatherly role than condemnation of young promising adults that are poise to develop the state with their ambition.
He said, “DFG as a group is very ready to stand behind any good individual of Delta origin to become the governor of Delta state come 2015, we as a group has found out that Ochei will be best as the governor because as a speaker his empowerment programmes are unequal compare to other Speakers in the country. Members of his constituency can attest to that and the infrastructural development of the State House of Assembly complex is also a good example.
“Chief Clark should know that Ochei has never at anytime indicated his interest to contest for governor of Delta state come 2015 unlike Chief Godsday Orubebe. It is only groups like DFG that have been urging him to contest for the seat comes 2015 because we the young adults are ready to support him to actualize the dream”.
The statement further added that gone are the days where some group of elders and leaders would tell the youths who should be their representatives, “we Deltans will decide who will be the governor and not one individual come 2015”, the statement added.
