A group, the Urhobo Political Agenda, yesterday, lashed out at the House of Representatives candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN in the Okpe/Sapele/Uvwie Federal constituency in the 2011 elections, Mrs. Veonica Ogbuagu over her media comments on the State Chairman of the party, Chief Adolo Okotie-Eboh.
The group described media reports credited to her as a strategy to destabilize the party in favour of the ruling People’s Democratic Party, PDP.
The group in a statement by its National Chairman, Comrade Clement Unior said Ogbuagu; “till date remains a PDP member who is under the sponsorship of her party to destroy ACN.” It added that her imposition as a House of Representatives candidate for 2011 general election destroyed the constituency.
According to the statement; “one of the resultant effects of this was the inability of of the ACN state wide campaign tour to access her home local government of Uwie”, adding that the party was set to sweep the Governorship seat in the state in 2015 due to the credible and purposeful leadership of the State Chairman of the party, Chief Adolor Okotie-Eboh.
“It is no longer a secrete of the Asaba night meeting of Thursday 2nd August 2012 where Senator Eferakeya, Veonica Ogbuagu, Hon Havest Igben and one Chief Philip Eyagomare agreed to destabilize the Action Congress of Nigeria as it is now a major threat to the ruling People’s Democratic Party,” the statement alleged.
