As the agitation for which zone should produce the next House of Assembly member for Ughelli South Constituency in 2023 continue to gather momentum, the Concerned Ughelli South Youths For Equity and Justice, has said Olorogun John Oguma was not the problem but the messiah of the people of the area.
The group in a statement by its Chairman, Mr John Diakparomre and Secretary, Mr Emma Ejovwokiniovo, insisted that Chief Ovis Uto is the problem of Ewu bloc in the local government area.
While frowning at the two days ultimatum given to Olorogun John Oguma to summon a meeting of Akonefe by some persons from Ewu bloc, else they would pull out of Akofe, the group said the ultimatum was provocative and insulting.
Describing the ultimatum given to Olorogun John Oguma as cheap blackmail, they alleged that Chief Ovis Uto and the second person sent to represent the Ewu bloc in the zoning Committee to decide which zone should produce the next House of Assembly member from the local government betrayed the people.
The group alleged that Chief Ovis Uto signed for the Jeremi zone to produce the House of Assembly member for third term to the detriment of the Akonefe people (Olomu, Effurun-Otor, Ewu, Okparabe and Arhavwanrien).
They said Olorogun John Oguma should be given time to summon the Akonefe meeting at the nearest possible time convenient for him, adding that; “Olorogun John Oguma has been very supportive of the Akonefe movement”.
