The factional President-General of Urhobo Progress Union (UPU), Worldwide, Olorogun Moses Taiga, has commended the Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, for the massive empowerment of his people, with a call on other elected Urhobo politicians to emulate this gesture.
Olorogun Taiga gave the commendation when members of his cabinet paid a courtesy call on the Speaker at his country home in Osubi, Okpe Local Government Area of the State.
Taiga who spoke through his Secretary, Barrister Ese Gam Owe, described the Friday, May 4, 2018 empowerment programme of the Speaker as unprecedented, imploring the Speaker to keep on putting smiles on faces of his people.
He said: “We want to commend you, our Son for the recent empowerment of your constituents. It is the first of its kind. We are impressed. This is not the first time that you are empowering your people. Keep up your good work. If all our elected politicians in Urhobo Nation can do what you are doing by empowering our people, there will be general peace in Urhobo land.
“We want our elected politicians in Urhobo land to emulate the kind gesture of the Speaker. UPU has immense confidence on the Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly. We want to express our appreciation to the Speaker for promptly receiving UPU immediately after he got our request letter.”
Responding, Speaker Oborevwori, while commending over the visit said: “I must say that I am indeed excited about this your visit today. I do not have much to say, but I want to call for unity in Urhobo land. We should be united and speak with one voice always. We must do everything possible to move Urhobo forward”, the Speaker said.
Barrister Owe had explained that Taiga was unable to join in the visit because of another engagement with the Urhobo Historical Society.
