Warri South Local Government Area in Delta State witnessed a massive protest today as aggrieved Urhobo youths demonstrated against the decision to cede the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ticket to the Itsekiri people for the upcoming local government council election.

Chanting slogans such as “No Urhobo, No Chairman in Warri South,” the protesters expressed their demand for an Urhobo candidate to be considered for the chairmanship position. The unrest underscores the deep-seated ethnic tensions and the competitive nature of local politics in the region, where ethnic groups vie for political influence and representation.

The Governor of Delta State, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori, is expected to arrive in Warri South today to address the situation and possibly mediate the conflict. His intervention is seen as crucial in defusing the tension and ensuring a peaceful resolution to the dispute. The governor’s visit comes amid heightened emotions and calls for inclusivity and fairness in the selection process of political candidates.

This protest is part of a broader context of political dynamics in Delta State, where ethnic considerations often play a significant role in political decisions and appointments. The outcome of this protest and the governor’s response will likely influence the political landscape in Warri South and Delta State at large.
