Jubilation Hits Ogbadibo Community As Gov Ortom Settles PDP Council Chairmanship Tussle

By Oche Great

Thunderous jubilation broke out yesterday across Orokam Land and my dear community Adupi as Ortom settle the long Chairmanship battle. Adupi Orokam is set to elect their first Ever Ogbadibo Local government chairman, since its creation. Adupi Orokam popularly known as Ai-Idoga has never produced an elective Chairman of Ogbadibo Local Government Council before.

It was indeed for Idoga as the two major and biggest political parties in Africa unanimously micro zoned their party tickets to the community for equity and fairness

Last week, APC zoned their party tickets to orokam ward 1 and ward 1 unanimously micro zoned it to Adupi Orokam.

In the same vein, the PDP leadership micro zoned her ticket to Adupi, and Adupi adopted David Abah Umoru, but the decision of the party was objected to by some contestants across ward 1.


As we all know, before the party arrived at a consensus, all the candidates must accept the party’s decision.

Hon Fred, Hon. Emani and Chief Mike Igoche all petitioned the ward’s party decision, but for peace and fairness, the Local Government party leadership has to speak with the aggrieved contestants and all of them stepped down for David Abah Umoru at the Ogbadibo party caucus meeting.

At 11th hours, the suspended incumbent Chairman Hon. Prince Onuh disagreed with the party’s decision and vowed to use all his might and connections to make sure the long-time zoning formula the good people of Ogbadibo enjoy was destroyed. He turned the peaceful meeting to raudy section, but the party caucus unanimously held their ground and adopted David Abah Umoru for Ogbadibo Number 1 job.

The embattled chairman thereafter petitioned the party decision to the governor.

Immediately, the Governor called for an emergency meeting and told Hon prince Onuh out of his pool of wisdom to step down his candidacy for the people’s candidacy of David Abah Umoru.

Hon. Prince Onu accepted the decision and promised to work with David Abah Umoru.

Ortom congratulated the good people of Ai-Idoga, Orokam, and Ogbadibo Local government.
