A Peoples’ Democratic Party chieftain and one time governorship aspirant in Delta state, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, has thrown his weight behind the member representing Okpe/Sapele/Uvwie constituency at the Federal House of Representatives, Hon. Barr. Evelyn Oboroh, over the media war surrounding the passage of the FUPRE bill into law.
In a press statement signed and released by his Media Aide, Stanley Efe, to emeraldng.com, the PDP chieftain stated that Oboroh initiated the bill and should be commended instead of trying to humiliate her because of selfish, egoistic and political interest.
Onuesoke called on PDP faithful to see media war between Oboro and Senator Omo-Agege as an affront on PDP by the ruling party APC and therefore should stand against it without fear or favour.
“I have observed and noticed an usual “silence” by PDP members regarding the media war between one of our own, Hon. Evelyn Oboro and APC Senator Omo-Agege.
“This is disheartening and absurd. This “war” should not be personalized. It’s between PDP and APC, not Oboroh and Omo-Agege. It is a clear case of APC trying to discredit PDP by claiming the glory for the passage of this bill.
“It is on record that Chief Ighoyota Amori of PDP also made useful contributions towards the passage of that bill. Omo-Agege trying to silent our sister’s voice and claim all the glory is an affront on PDP which should be resisted by all PDP members, chieftains and stakeholders. We should not keep quiet. It should be seen as a PDP affair and not Oboroh’s issue.
“Oboroh single handedly initiated that bill at a time Omo-Agege was still running from one political party to the other. She should be commended and not witch hunted for political reasons,” he stated.
