DPP CONDEMNS DEPLOYMENT OF TROOPS IN ABRAKA
BY CHARLES KUMOLU
DEMOCRATIC Peoples Prty,DPP, has condemned the deployment of truckloads of soldiers and policemen in Abraka, allegedly on the orders of Delta State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan.
DPP, in a statement by its Secretary, Chief Lance Orhierhor, called on the governor to apologise to Deltans over what he described as leadership recklessness.
He said: 'Putting Abraka, the home town of our leader Olorogun Great Ogboru, under severe martial siege by truckloads of soldiers and policemen for his personal safety, Dr. Uduaghanyesterday issued a litany of threats to demolish any house.
'This is our unequivocal response to the governor's attitude. No human being, including institution or government, has the power to demolish or do whatever they desire. The unjustifiable outburst is, therefore, a clear expression of bizarre understanding of political power as a force for perpetual evil,rather than good.
'Finally, we are pleased that this is happing in the public domain. Those who will demolish or do whatever they desire are very likely to be illegitimate leaders or governments.'
