United Ika Landlords/Landladies Association,
Comprising Landlords and members of whom are drawn from both Ika South and Ika
North East Local Government Areas of Delta State has appealed to the former
House of Representatives member, Ika Federal Constituency, Hon Doris Uboh to
listen to the voice of reason and stop going to court with the present member
representing the Constituency at the National Assembly, Hon Victor Nwokolo.

The association in a statement issued at the end of
its meeting on Wednesday, 23rd May, 2012 at Boji-Boji, Owa and
signed by it chairman Hon. John Amufua and Secretary, Mr. Philip Ebeyeoghor
said, that they are surprise that up till now Ika Federal Constituency is not
moving forward politically.

According the statement “We voted for someone to
represent us in Abuja but the impact of the representation is not being felt by
the people because of litigations in Asaba, Benin and Abuja. We are not happy
that since the House of Representatives election was conducted in Ika Federal
Constituency in April last Year, Hon. Nwokolo has not gotten rest of mind,
because of the court cases he is having. It has become difficult for him to
perform or do any meaningful thing in Ika Nation.

“Now we are appealing to Hon. Doris Uboh to stop using
court (litigation) to distract Hon. Nwokolo, who the people of Ika Federal
Constituency voted into office” The association implored Hon. Uboh to allow the
sleeping dog lie by withdrawing every case she filed against Nwokolo in the
court that she should remember that she is still an Ika woman and might need
something from her people one day. They however appealed to all Ika traditional
rulers including eminent Ika Politicians to intervene in the issue for peace to

In another development, the association thanked
Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State for delivering on his 3 point agenda,
particularly on the renovation/rebuilding of primary schools in Ika Land. They
appealed to the governor to ensure that work on the Old Lagos/Asaba is
completed soon.

Present during the meeting were Hon. John Amufua,
chairman, Mr. George Ugbogu, vice-chairman, Philip Ebeyeoghor, secretary,
Uwadia, C., PRO, Chief Benson Iyamah, treasurer, Chief Joseph Odijie, Odafin
Akaeze of Abavo kingdom, Chief Mrs. P. N. Iyasere, Chief P. O. Agbogweu, Chief
