Things have started working for good for the senatorial ambition of the Governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan.
Eight local government areas in his Delta South Senatorial District, comprising the former vice chairmen, councillors and opinion leaders, popularly known as the G-8, have cleared the coast for him.
The group did not only endorse Uduaghan but declared unalloyed support for his dream. The senatorial seat is currently being occupied by Senator James Manager.
The National Coordinator of the G-8, Hon. Elijah Ologe, corroborated by his Secretary, Blexon Omadoye, in Asaba, said the governor deserved their vote of confidence for the Senate seat because he has acquired the requisite records to represent the district.
Ologe and Omadoye said Uduaghan presents the best the senatorial district could push forward in 2015 to the National Assembly. They argued that the district would not only enjoy fresh breath of legislative experience but would also rest assured that resolutions and laws that address the challenges of the constituency would be met.
Ologe explained that the G-8 came to the conclusion that, having delivered as a former Commissioner for Health and Secretary to the State Government, during former Governor James Ibori’s administration, and now governor for eight years, Uduaghan has the credentials for the Senate in 2015.
He said: “The governor has largely delivered on the peace and security, human-capital and infrastructural development he promised the people of the state in 2007.
“Besides, he knows how legislators attract projects to their constituency.
“The projects he started and completed are sure hopes that as senator, Dr. Uduaghan will influence infrastructural projects from the national budget to Delta State.
“With Uduaghan’s charisma at the Senate in 2015, Delta South would be the fastest growing senatorial district across the country.
“I am not mincing words when as I say this, if we go by his achievements in health, education, information, job creation, youth and women empowerment in the past eight years.”
