Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Itsekiri chief, Ayirimi Emami, has called on all Deltans and Nigerians to follow the presidential candidate, Ahmed Bola Tinubu ahead of the 2023 general elections.
According to the business magnate, Tinubu alone knows the appropriate way to bring back the country to her feet of greatness.
He was speaking at the sidelines of the unveiling of the new Eghare-Aja, Daniel Uwawah, Galassi II of Ugborodo, on Tuesday at Ode-Ugborodo, headquarters of Ugborodo land in Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta State.
“My advice to my community, Deltans and Nigerians is for them to follow Asiwaju Tinubu,” he counseled.
He said the Muslim-Muslim creating tension was unnecessary, insisting that the Tinubu/Shettima ticket was the best combination for the country under the APC.
“Concerning the Muslim-Muslim ticket, like I have always been saying, what we need is not something of religion.
“I don’t have issues with the ticket; what I want is somebody that can develop our country and make our lives better and Tinubu Shettima ticket will do the job,” he reiterated.
Speaking on the new Eghare-Aja, whom he described as the administrative head of the five communities that make up Ugborodo, Chief Emami urged all indigenes of the communities to unite for development.
“He is the administrative head of Ugborodo. We have five communities that make up Ugborodo, Ogidigben, Ajudaibo, Madanhon, Ijala and Ode-Ugborodo.
“When it comes to the ancestral things we need to do about tradition, he is the man in charge.
“My message is for everybody to work together for the interest of the community.
“Majority of the people are happy, everybody cannot be happy. But from today, I will go and get everybody involved,” he vowed.
The new Eghare-Aja, who’s the chairman of the Council of Elders, has, however, disclosed to the crowd present at the unveiling that a meeting of all stakeholders of Ugborodo land would hold on September 17, 2022, to deliberate on the implementation of the Petroleum Industry Act (PIA).
Stonix News reports that several indigenes of Ugborodo land were in attendance at the unveiling.
