Member representing Oredo Federal Constituency of Edo State at the House of Representative Hon. Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama has denied initiating any legal process in court, with reference to the recently concluded primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party in Edo State to elect ad-hoc delegates.
In a statement by Special Assistance on Media and Communications, Bugie Okhuemoi, the lawmaker refuted any media report linking him to a purported court case, and asked members of the public to disregard the contents of such publication with assertions or suggestions in any form.
“Purile and negative journalism of any kind, fueled by a social media space where anything can be promoted by anyone, is not a type the Ogbeide-Ihama brand associates with. It has never been, and it will never be.
“Rt. Hon. Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama recognises and appreciates the passion of party members and supporters of various aspirants. We need such vibrance in our political space as more people get involved, but he appeals that support for respective candidates is carried out with decency and courtesy, void of name callings, direct insults and any other action that paints our party members and image in negative colours.
“Let’s remember we remain one family in our party the PDP, and however the primaries turn out, we will need to sell ourselves to the electorates as one united family, devoid of resentments and bad blood.
“Hon. Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama continues to focus on delivering the expectations of the noble people of Oredo, and his present consultations with delegates across seven local governments towards securing the party’s ticket for Senate to represent Edo South Senatorial District in the 2023 elections,” the statement read.
The lawmaker also thanked Oredo constituents, the committed and resolute members of the Peoples Democratic Party across Edo South for their endearing support so far.
