Group distances self from endorsement of Isoko house of reps aspirant

By Kelvin Ohoror

The League of Professionals for Strategic Advocacy has frowned at the use of its name and brand to wade into the ongoing House of Representatives contest in Isoko Federal Constituency of Delta State.

This came through the purported endorsement of one of the aspirants, Bashorun Askia Ogieh, and the erection of billboards within the constituency to advance the candidature of the same aspirant under the false claim that they were “Powered by the League of Professionals for Strategic Advocacy”.

A statement by its Chairman, Mr Pius Mordi, disclaimed the purported endorsement and the billboards in the name of the League by some unknown persons. The statement said the body is not involved in local politics, pointing out that its members were more concerned about what could be done to make Delta State greater and not what could be taken away from the state.

It maintained that the Asaba based group was focused on national issues affecting Delta State, stressing that although members were free to hold and espouse their individual allegiance and promote their political preferences, the League as a body was never involved in partisan local politics characterized by the endorsement of aspirants of any political party.

The League urged members of the public to disregard the purported endorsement as the League had no knowledge of it and did not authorize it.
