The President of the Urhobo Youth Leaders Association (UYLA), Olorogun Onoriode Ofoni has reiterated the Association's commitment to continuously support the Sen. Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa’s administration of Delta State.

Ofoni recalled how the body prior to 2015 elections, was the first group to openly support the Okowa/Otuaro, PDP’s ticket with a mega political rally at the PTI Conference Centre with Okowa in attendance, stating that, “We went ahead to organise a market to market campaign exercise in major markets for PDP candidate among Delta Central and South South Senatorial district.”

Ofoni further disclosed various efforts on the Association's belief on the rotation agenda of the PDP to ensure that Gov Okowa got a second term. “In 2019, we held another seminar in Sapele, reiterated our commitment to the zoning arrangements of the party and endorsed the candidacy of Gov Okowa for a second term”.


Ofoni pledged that UYLA’s loyalty is to Senator Ifeanyi Okowa and Delta State PDP led by Barrister Kingsley Esiso, “We wholeheartedly trust their judgments and leadership styles. Wherever direction they go, there we will go too".
