Sapele PDP Cares has again expressed its disappointment with the choice of Bright Abeke as the chairmanship candidate of the party in Sapele Local Government Area in the forthcoming council elections in the state.

In an open letter signed by Emoghene Onosakponome, Chairman; Atubi Stanley,
Secretary and Eric Afiz, Treasurer and addressed to the Governor of the state, Rt. (Hon.) Sheriff Oborevwori, the group, said: “Your Excellency, we, Sapele PDP Cares, respectfully draw your attention to serious concerns that threaten the principles and future of our great party.”

Adding: “The state chairman Barr Esiso consistently engages in self-serving behaviors undermining fair representation and credibility in his leadership.

“Specifically, his unilateral selection of Bright Abeke as Sapele candidate reeks of political opportunism rather than competence for the role.”

Sapele PDP Cares claimed that “as DESOPADEC head for 3 years, records show Mr. Abeke failed to address community needs, contrary to Barr Esiso’s dishonest claims,” saying that “this leaves no doubt control, not community progress, motivated the decision, to the celebration of opposition parties.”

According to the group, “Barr Esiso has also restricted patronage exclusively to cronies from Sapele LGA, including Hon. Perkins Umukoro,(Delta State House of Assembly member) Onome Akpokhere (SUBEB member), Dr. Enitan Godfrey, (Delta State Scholarship Board Executive Secretary), Julius Egbedi,(Commissioner representing Sapele, Ethiope West and Uvwie in the board of DESOPADEC) Sunny Ebireri, Acting Chairman, Delta State House of Assembly Commission board and numerous SAs,” saying that this disregards “diversity and legitimate interests of others.”
The group also alleged that all the said office holders in Sapele are said to be remitting at least 60 percent of their funds to him, either in budget or salary.

The letter continued: “His monopolization of Sapele and neighboring areas threatens the party by prioritizing narrow motives over representation.

“Alarmingly, some seem to be buying positions by funding Barr Esiso personally in a corrupt interference that undermines merit-based appointments.

“Urgent intervention is needed to protect our integrity, restrain Barr Esiso’s damaging conduct, and guard against factions within the party.

“Sapele residents and all Deltans deserve qualified leadership addressing needs through fair democratic processes, not unsuitable candidates imposed through dubious means.

“Your Excellency, for the party’s long-term welfare and governance of all people, we appeal for a unifying candidate and resolution of this destabilizing situation through a thorough investigation.

“Justice demands qualified leadership selected through democratic fairness that prioritizes community interests above any individual agenda.|
