Oloye said in a press statement on Tuesday signed by him , ”Tthat the highly respected former minister, Chief Godday Orubebe has every right to join any political party of his choice, therefore, wondered why his name was dragged into a publication on Orubebe’s decampment. After all, I am not a APC member I am now PDP the Delta state House of Assembly flag bearer. This is hand work of political detractors to pitch me against our political leader.
”Recall that few days back the former minister of Niger Delta affairs Hon. Elder Goddey Orubebe officially resigned from the people Democratic Party PDP owing to reason best known to him.
“However, the name of Hon. Peres Oloye whom is the candidate of the people Democratic Party PDP for Burutu south constituency 11 in the forthcoming house of Assembly General elections come 2023 was mentioned in an online publication
“‘For record purposes, I disassociate myself from the resignation news of Hon. Goddey Orubebe stating that Orubebe is one of the leaders in Tuomo ward 3, a leader in the polity of Delta state and Nigeria at large, and has the capacity to weigh his options as to which political party to associate with, therefore the publication that has my name on it is a figment of people imagination” he said.
However. Chief Pere Oloye appealled to the general public to disregard such news aimed at discrediting his personality owing to the fact that he now enjoys undiluted support from leaders across Burutu south constituency 11.
He further stated that he has enormous respect for Hon. Goddey Orubebe and will never in any fora disrespectful his decision politically.
