Urhobo representative at the National Assembly,Mr. Augustine Ovie Omo-agege who could not took Urhobo kings and opinion leaders to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari was said to be absent during a meeting of Urhobo delegation to President Buhari, sunreporters can authoritatively report.

Palpable sources told our correspondents that Mr. Augustine Ovie Omo-agege was said to be absent from the meeting, which Chief Otega Emerhor secured with the presidency, a development that led to throwing out Mr. Omo-agege’s name from the list of those to meet with the president because of the alleged cold between the dual.

According to a source in the meeting stated that Mr. Omo-agege who claimed to be very close to President Muhammadu Buhari could not secure a date with Mr. President to meet with Urhobo ethnic nationality, but Mr. Otega Emerhor with his contacts was able to secure the meeting, a development many described as a plus to Mr. Emerhor credibility within the Urhobo enclaves.

Mr. Omo-agege who was known for his clandestine behivour was alleged to have went into hiding as Urhobo leaders arrived Abuja on Sunday night ahead of the meeting billed for Monday morning as his known cell phone was said to be switched off, when an Urhobo leader (name withheld) put a call across to him.

In a related development, President Muhammadu Buhari was said to have subtly thrown out a plea by Urhobo leaders for a ministerial slot for the fifth ethnic nationality in Nigeria, stressing that ministerial slot was constitutional issue.

Buhari noted that Nigeria has over 250 ethnic groups averred that it would impossible for his administration  to appoint a minister from every ethnic group; assured Urhobo nation to punish any military officer found selling land given to military by Urhobo community.
