A renowned Chartered Accountant, Chief Ede Dafinone, an All Progressive Congress (APC) Delta Central Senatorial District aspirant, has said that it will profit Urhobo Nation if he is voted to represent the Urhobo people in the Senate because he has the capacity to up the game.
Ede stated this on Tuesday during his consultation visit to Ughelli North, Ughelli South and Udu local government areas of Delta State.
”The Senate is not for unprepared people, is not a place for children, you must be educated, ready to serve the people.
” The man that must represent the Urhobo nation at the Senate, must be someone who has the experience and is competent,” he said.
”When PDP came to power in 1999, they had just one mission, and that is to empower themselves, they failed to empower Deltans, a situation that has left many of our people in a state of abject poverty,’” he added.
Responding, the chairman of Ughelli North Local Government area, Mr Obakpororo Onabeje said that the spirit of making Urhobos great is in the blood of the Dafinones.
“He has that natural instinct in him which he inherited from the father. As a matter of fact, we will not disappoint you.
”The vacuum that Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege is about to leave is a very big one and we want somebody who is this competent, with this sound qualifications to represent us.
”On behalf of Ughelli North, we will give you the required support to go to Abuja to represent us.”
Hon David Orherhiobore the APC chairman of Udu Local Government Area while responding to Chief Ede Dafinone’s speech, revealed that the Dafinone family is an awesome family, adding that the days of thuggery have passed.
“We need people who will intimidate the public with their CV, as far as we are concerned you are already in the Senate. We give you our full support”, he said.
Addressing local government executives, ward chairmen and secretaries at Ughelli South, Chief Ede, noted that, the business of the senate is not for babies but for someone with the requisite experience, knowledge and capacity.
“Omo-Agege is living a big shoe that needs an experienced person with the requisite qualification, connection and experience so that he can consolidate on the massive achievements of the Deputy President of the Senate, Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege,” he said.
He appealed to the delegates to vote for him at the primary so that he could bring them a representation that would take not only, but everyone to the senate.
Responding, Chief r Isaiah Kekeje, APC Chairman, Ughelli South Local Government assured him that delegates from Ughelli South would support him, adding that he is one of the best 11 with an intimidating profile and wide tentacles that cut across Africa and the World.
