In a move to permanently resolve the lingering leadership crisis rocking the Urhobo Progress Union, UPU, the Concerned Urhobo for Change, a pan-Urhobo political group, has advised both Chief Joe Omene and Chief Tuesday Onege to step down to enable the Urhobo people elect new executives to pilot the affairs of the union.
The group had earlier called for immediate dissolution of the two factions of UPU separately led by Chiefs Omene and Onege.
President of the group, Comrade Gabriel Akpude, who made the call yesterday in Warri, said it was time for Omene and Onoege to put aside their personal interests, honourably step down and allow Urhobo to conduct a fresh election to produce new leadership of the union.
“Urhobo is bigger than Omene and Onoge. Therefore whatever may be their reasons the Urhobo traditional rulers and prominent Urhobo sons and daughters should come together to save Urhobo nation from the present shame and disgrace in order to restore and protect Urhobo dignity and honour.”
