RE: ELECTION MONITORS AND CIVIL SOCIETY GROUPS PRAISES PEACEFUL CONDUCT OF ELECTIONS ACROSS DELTA STATE CONDEMNS THE BURNING OF DESIEC OFFICE AND ACT OF VIOLENCE PERPETRATED AT UGHELLI NORTH.
Our attention has been drawn to a report with the above title posted by one Osademe Otuyene Joseph.
In the report, it stated that Mr Egbonimali Shedrack of Delta Decides was at the scene of the incidence where DSIEC Ughelli North Office was razed down. We wish to state categorically that:-
- The chairman of Delta Decides, Mr. Egbonimali Shedrack was not at DSIEC Ughelli North office when the incident occurred.
- That Mr. Egbonimali Shedrack only observed and monitored the LG election in his constituency ( Ika constituency).
- That according to DSIEC rules and regulations, Delta Decides as one of the accredited observers did not issue any statement/ press/report as it was stated on the post made by Osademe Otuyene Joseph.
- That Mr. Egbonimali Shedrack only read about the burning down of DSIEC Ughelli North office online and could not have alleged nor mention any name, political party and could not have written any report as regard the event since he was not at the scene of occurrence nor mentioned any name and political party.
It should also be noted that as a registered pressure group and the mother of all pressure groups in the State, Delta Decides is not affiliated with any political party and that we are not biased in our operations. We therefore condemn any calculated attempt by anybody or group to drag us into any political war.
On this note, we hereby disassociate DELTA DECIDES, from any report/ release concerning the Local Government Elections which held on the 6th of January, 2018.
