The Delta State Deputy Governor, Barr Kingsley Otuaro has cautioned people perpetrating crisis that is bedeviling Ojobo community in Burutu Local Government Area as a result of what he described as flawed and inconclusive community election to maintain peace as he asked the chairmanship candidates of the election to step aside.

Otuaro, in consonance with the peace agenda of the Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, sounded the warning yesterday at a meeting in his office, Asaba, while addressing the chairmanship candidates in the election including Messrs Ophoni Okubokeye, Akuna Ebigbongha Tissa Tou Angela as well as other aspirants and their supporters.

Stressing that the present administration was conscious of the security of her citizenry, Barr Otuaro insisted that Ojobo, as part of Delta State, would be protected from those who try to make peace impossible. As a government, you are our people; we will not want a situation where the head of just one person is lost in Ojobo, We will not want any single harm or death to be occasioned on any indigene of Ojobo because we value our citizens" he emphasized.

Considering the fact that the election was fraudulently conducted and inconclusive as reported by witnesses and some Ojobo community indigenes, the Deputy Governor cautioned that nobody should impose himself as chairman of Ojobo Community as reported and, therefore, as a definite panacea to the crises, instructed that the three chairmanship candidates, who earlier contested for the position should step aside. He said that the Amanayabor and selected leaders of Ojobo Community would be communicated in due time to appoint a substantive chairman for the Ojobo community, who will act as the chairman of the community for the year under review.

Insisting that the election was flawed and inconclusive, Barr Otuaro said under no law would anybody super- impose himself under that condition as chairman as he repeated that the three chairmanship aspirants should step aside. "You are not eligible candidates for the position of chairman of Ojobo Community, it is government order" .he said.

While signing an undertaking/resolution of the chairmanship candidates not to breach the peace of the community any further, Otuaro warned the parties involved that government is keenly watching to see who will go contrary to the undertaking and would bring the full weight of the law on such person.
