Former House of Assembly candidate for Isoko South constituency 1 on the platform of New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) in Delta State, Chief Oyibo Clement, has urged the national leadership of the party to prevail on the state’s Transition Chairman, Rex Ogboru to summon a meeting of the stakeholders and party members in the state.

Chief Clement, in an open letter to the national leadership of the party and made available to THISDAY yesterday, alleged that Ogboru had refused to summon meetings of the party since he was appointed the transition chairman of the party since last year.

He said  it appeared the leadership of the party was not preparing for future elections by not reviewing what transpired in the state during the 2023 elections when the immediate-past party chairman allegedly sold out to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Accordin to him, “It is quite unfortunate that our great party is in the hand of another wrong person in Delta State after a successful cash out by the immediate-past chairman in last general election. Rex Ogboru is already preparing grounds to continue from where the former chairman stopped.

“However, the few of us who believe strongly in the leadership of the national bodies will not allow these elements to bring down the efforts of a few committed members who still believe in the party regardless of the outcome of the last election.”

Clement noted that since Ogboru was appointed as the state transition chairman, he has not, for once, called for a stakeholder’s meeting with reasons best known to him, adding: “But once there’s a meeting in Abuja of the party, he is there to give false account of what he never did in Delta State.”

He wondered why the transition chairman was yet to call for stakeholders and party meetings knowing fully well that the ward and state congresses were approaching and members were kept in the dark about happenings in the party.

“I have it in good authority that the party ward and state congresses are coming up in few days from now. One would wonder if NNPP has suddenly become a private property of an individual hence the reason why communication are not related to stakeholders in the state,” he added.

Clement said he had tried severally to reach the transition chairman of the party but refused to either pick his phone calls or respond to text messages.

He warned that unless the transition chairman is directed to call stakeholders’ meeting, any congress “called here in Delta State will be effort in futility because we shall not hesitate to seek redress.”

The NNPP chieftain, therefore, called on the national leadership of the party to do what is regarded by law to avert future internal conflict in Delta State chapter of the party.

Meanwhile, the Transition Chairman of Delta State NNPP, Ogboru, said he was busy when contacted for his reaction and promised to get back but didn’t as at the time of filling this report.
