Urhobo Deserves a Place in Federal Executive Council – Aziza

PRESIDENT- General of Urhobo Progress Union, UPU, General Patrick Aziza (rtd), weekend, said that the Urhobo nation, as the fifth largest ethnic nationality in the country, deserves a place in the Federal Executive Council.
Aziza, while receiving the leadership of Urhobo Youth Council, UYC, led by Mr. Henry Baro, charged Urhobo politicians to be selfless wherever they find themselves, noting, “whatever position you are given is because you are from the Urhobo ethnic nationality. Therefore, you are holding that position in trust and you must be selfless in whatever you do.”
Thanking UYC for its solidarity, he said; “I am further strengthened by your visit. Your group has been very supportive.” On UPU leadership’s visit to Arewa Consultative Forum, he explained that the visit was for the benefit of the Urhobo people, adding, “My leadership of UPU is determined to build bridges across all the ethnic groups in the country for the benefit of the future of our children and to advance the political prospects of the Urhobo.”
Aziza said he will continue to uphold the constitution of UPU, which he swore to do, reiterating that; “I came to unite the Urhobo people; they must be united in the struggle for a better place.”
