Haven collected all Ad-hoc Delegates forms from the State party Secretariat, the Ughelli South LGA Chairman Hon. Michael Oshetigho has bluntly refused to distribute the forms to the ward Chairmen for filling.

A cross section of LGA ward Chairmen and Delegates who are presently fuming, accused the party chairman, Oshetigho of high handedness and in secret collaboration with some leaders in the LGA to exchange the already written and approved names for others that are not in the original list.
