  1. You people are not sincere. As long as you in this group sees Okpe/Sapele/Uvwie as not part of Urhobo, these people too will not play second fiddle to any one or group of persons no matter how highly placed in the society. Your failure to support the Okpe/Sapele/Uvwie cause to become the governor of the state in 2023 knowing too well that Ethiope East/Ethiope West and Ughelli/Udu Federal Constituencies have produced the governor shows lack of honour on your part. I am not disappointed at the role played by this ignoble group because from onset I know that it is a cup of cankerworms and I am highly vindicated.
    I advised that you stop shedding your crocodile tears, go to the poll and cast your vote rather than weeping sentiments here.
