Delta Political Vanguard has felicitated with the Urhobo nation on Mukoro Mowoe Memorial Day.
The leading political pressure group in Delta State, the Delta Political Vanguard (DPV), has felicitated the Urhobo Nation on the occasion of the 74th Memorial Day Celebration of its legend and first President of the Urhobo Progress Union (UPU), Mukoro Mowoe, which took place yesterday in Ughelli.
Delta Political Vanguard praised Mukoro Mowoe, an Urhobo Nation legend, and said that even though he died 74 years ago, his achievements are still unmatched by Urhobo Nation leaders.
Speaking on behalf of the DPV, a leading pressure group in the People Democratic Party (PDP), Comrade Sanco Ese Darlington, who is the newly appointed National Secretary of the Group, noted that the present leaders of Urhobo Nation must rise up and emulate the virtues of the late Mukoro Mowoe, who stood up to fight and defend Urhobo Nation causes in his time, unifying Urhobo Nation and making sure Urhobo Nation was never divided.
Sanco, who is also the President of Urhobo Development and Unity Forum (UDUF), wondered if the present leaders of Urhobo Progress Union (UPU) and leaders of other prominent Urhobo socio, cultural and political groups are not bothered about what legacy they intend to be remembered for.
He stated that Mukoro Mowoe will be embarrassed and will turn his grave to see that the almighty Urhobo Progress Union (UPU) which he helped to birth is no longer alive to its duty of unifying Urhobo Sons and Daughters and is now partisan and keeping quiet in complicit silence as its children fight a macabre political war to the consternation of other ethnic nations who looked up to the Urhobo Nation as big brothers.
Comrade Sanco urged Urhobo Nation Leaders to clean up their act or risk losing the trust of the younger generation of Urhobo Sons and Daughters, and warned that the Urhobo Progress Union must refrain from endorsing one son against another in political contests, but rather embrace all, regardless of political party, be it PDP, APC, APGA, SDP, LP, or any other.
Comrade Sanco wondered why the DC-23 Group had suddenly gone silent and turned away from the political fight between two sons whom they had recommended to Governor Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa and the Delta State PDP as possible governorship candidates: Sheriff Oborevwori and Olorogun David Edevbie.
He called on the DC-23 Group to do what is necessary and help stop the needless political war that has worried other ethnic nations about the divisiveness in the Urhobo Nation.
The fearless Okpe-born activist praised Activist Rex Anighoro, founder of the Coalition of the Urhobo Nation Young Leaders and Stakeholders (CUNYLS), as convener of the 74th Mukoro Mowoe Day celebration for his over ten years of consistency in ensuring that the Mukoro Mowoe Day is celebrated, and urged Urhobo Nation Young Leaders to wake up from their slumber in the pursuit of leadership.
He stated that ” Young Urhobo leaders rise up now from slumber and position for leadership because if our Urhobo leaders fail us, we must not fail ourselves.” He concluded”
