Why Urhobos Might Lose Out And Be Unable To Produce Governor In 2023


As we move closer to the governorship primaries coming up on May 21st, 2022, it seems our hope to govern Delta state is melting away like a candle in the wind.

This is due to the fact that the Urhobos do not know the meaning of unity or collective interest, while aspirants from other senatorial districts do.

As at today, over 10 sons have indicated their interest and have undergone screening to contest the PDP Governorship primaries.

Meanwhile, our major challengers from Delta South have only two major aspirants, and they are quietly doing their homework and planning without rancour and little division.

That is why they might get their way, and no one can deny that he who fails to plan, plans to fail.

There is no doubt that he who plans quietly, operates covertly, demonstrates caution, patience, and wisdom, seeks unity, pursues a common and collective interest, and is strategic in all aspects will always win any given election.

The average man is loud, reckless, self-centered, incurable, ignorant, divisive, quarrelsome, blighted by bitterness, hate, and always fighting and pulling down his brother.

Whether you like it or not, if they can’t come together as one united family, they will lose out come 2023.

I have said this before and will say it again: there is only one constituency in Delta Central that has never enjoyed a governorship seat and that is the Okpe/Sapele/Uwvie (OSU) federal constituency. Yet how many Urhobo leaders and politicians are ready to speak truth to power and tell other aspirants to step down for the sake of fairness and equity?
You see what I am talking about? Instead, despite calls for equity from different quarters, especially the Osu Governorship movement, the UPU chooses to divide the urhobos more by endorsing an aspirant who lacks the popularity and relevant prerequisites to even win a councillorship seat in his local because of an individual interest.

It appears to me that in Delta central, some constituencies are more equal than others.

If Delta Central believes in equity and fairness among the senatorial districts in Delta State, then let charity begin among themselves and within their own rank, but as it is today, it is quite revealing that their leaders are grossly incapable of taking that decision on which constituency it should go to.

That alone would have narrowed our choices and guaranteed victory for our people.

I know they will never accept this bitter truth. They will even go further to insult me for suggesting it. This is not only sad but also pathetic.

We must have the courage as a people to stand up for what is right. We must also have the courage and foresight to pursue our collective interests and speak with one voice.

Sadly, to our traditional and political leaders, their individual interests are more important than our collective interests.

Like Cassius said in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, the fault is not in our stars but in ourselves.

Until we come together and address the issue of which constituency it should go to, in order to narrow our choices, Urhobo man’s becoming the Governor come 2023 may be a mirage.

You can abuse me as much as you like, but the truth is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

May God hear our prayers in Jesus’ name, amen.
