PDP frowns at UPU over endorsement of Olorogun David Edevbie as gubernatorial candidate

The PDP in a statement by its Chairman in the senatorial district, Chief A. P Fovie and 30 others, urged UPU leadership to with immediate effect withdraw the endorsement, adding that the UPU was usurping the functions of the party in the ongoing electioneering process leading to the primaries.

The party in the statement said; “It has come to our notice that the leadership of Urhobo Progress Union, UPU, on Sunday 17th April 2022, via a press statement announced the endorsement of a governorship aspirant under the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, Olorogun David Edebvie, as the Union’s preferred aspirant and in the same token urged our party delegates to vote en mass for him.

“UPU efforts in the affairs of Urhobo nation of Delta Central Senatorial District will always be appreciated if and only such efforts or interests are not in conflict with the duties and regulations of our party, PDP, and its organs. “And in the instant case, we found out that the purported endorsement of our party member who is a governorship aspirant usurped the functions of our party in the ongoing electioneering process leading to the party primaries.
