Okowa will regret losing Uduaghan to APC, Ogboru declares.
Standard-Bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State, Great Ogboru, yesterday boasted that Governor Ifeanyi Okowa’s would regret allowing ex-governor Emmanuel Uduaghan to leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Speaking at a campaign rally in Burutu, Ogboru said Okowa’s refusal to accept Uduaghan’s handover note had made his administration unable to achieve much and unpopular with Delta people.
He promised to turn Burutu into tourist center by reviving the economy of the area.
The APC candidate said Burutu may have been forgotten, but we will make it functional by making it a tourist attraction when we come into government.
Earlier, Uduaghan said Delta needed a man like Ogboru with business acumen to create wealth in the state.
Uduaghan said his voice would be loud and clear in the Senate to project Delta State.
He promised to initiate bills to transfer some equity of oil companies operating in the Niger Delta to the people of the region.
Director General of Great Ogboru Campaign Organisations, Gorge Timimini, urged the Ijaw nation to vote for Ogboru who is married to their daughter, nothing that a First Lady will do much for Burutu people than a docile deputy governor.
He also appealed to the stakeholders to allow power to rotate amongst the three ethnic groups, by voting Uduaghan who brought a lot of development to Burutu when he was governor of the state.
