…Chief Frank Omare Stresses Need to Save Costs in Covid-19 Economy
The Leadership of Ogbe-Ijoh Federal Ward, now split into 4 State wards of Ogbe-Ijoh, Adu-Ikeremo, Izansa /Ijelejele and Diebiri Wards, has advised the 40 aspirants contesting for 4 councillorship seats to prune down the number to a manageable size before the election.
Speaking at a meeting with the councillorship aspirants in his Warri residence at the weekend, Chief Frank Omare and other political leaders in the area said the advice became very necessary following the current harsh economic situation occasioned by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Ogbe-Ijoh political gladiators sued for peace among the councillorship aspirants before, during and after the election, so as to achieve a free, fair and credible election with acceptable results.
Chief Omare urged the aspirants to engage in issues-based political campaigns as against campaigns of character assassination that will bring no development to their wards and the entire Ogbe-Ijoh Community.
He reiterated his appeal to the 40 councillorship aspirants to have a rethink with a view to reducing the number since the contest is for only 4 slots. He added that the ward leaders would not encourage the trend of unwieldy contest among politicians, most especially now that Nigeria is challenged by serious global economic situations.
