*Frowns at those dragging deputy governor’s name into the mud
Delta State House of Assembly hopeful for Warri South-West Constituency under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Comrade Sheriff Mulade, has preached peaceful relationship among aspirants vying for the Warri South-West constituency seat.
He equally advised against blackmail and the use of derogatory comments against opponents aspiring for the state legislative position from the area.
Comrade Mulade, while noting that the position of House of Assembly member is not by appointment or selection, added that making derogatory remarks against another aspirant does not speak well of the political advancement of the people.
The House of Assembly aspirant condemned in its entirety the instigation of people against each other and admonished aspirants to urge their supporters to tackle issue based campaigns rather than resorting into blackmail of other aspirants.
He said: “I know that those carrying out such acts, are errant boys and sycophants who want to impress their bosses, but I must say that this is myopic and not acceptable. We are the same people, one family and we should not allow politics to destroy a life time of togetherness. We must have respect for one another. We should teach our supporters to do the right thing.”
The Warri South-West House of Assembly hopeful frowned at those dragging the state deputy governor, Barr. Kingsley Otuaro, to the mud about South-West constituency issue, noting that the position of a lawmaker is elective and not by appointment as being speculated in some quarters.
He explained further that the office of the deputy governor is by appointment as it pleases his principal, the state governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa. which is normally done according to the constitution.
He advised aspirants and those doing contrary to desist from such and face their campaigns and wait for the forthcoming primary of the PDP,which, according to him, is the only the deciding factor for all aspirants to test their popularity in the field.
According to him: “If people are qualified to contest, they should come out openly to do so and should not be clamouring that it should be zoned to one paticular area. The Warri South West Constituency seat is open to any qualified person from the area.”
