Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State has draw support for candidates of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming polls by showcasing a harvest of projects across the state.

Speaking as he commissioned the projects on Thursday, Governor Uduaghan said it was necessary for the people to vote PDP in the coming elections so that they will continue to enjoy the dividends of democracy as they have been doing since 1999.

Specifically, Governor Uduaghan while commissioning Ashaka - Aboh Road observed that the PDP-led government in the state has made it possible for vehicles to drive to Aboh, in Ndokwa East Local Government Area of the state, without making use of a pontoon which was the norm before the party came to power in 1999.

“One can drive to Aboh now,” Uduaghan said, adding: “Before 1999, when you mention Aboh, what comes to mind is pontoon and bad road. Aboh is a historic town. You have requested for more projects; the only way you can get these projects is by voting for PDP, a party which has brought a lot of development to this ancient kingdom.”

The Governor further said: “Get your PVCs (Permanent Voters’ Cards) to enable you vote for President Goodluck Jonathan, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa as our Governor, Chief Peter Nwaoboshi as our Senator, Hon. Ossai Ossai for House of Representatives and Mr Empowerment, Hon. Friday Osanebi, for House of Assembly.”

Dr. Uduaghan, who had earlier paid a courtesy call on the Obi of Aboh, HRM Obi Imegwu II, commended the royal father for been a blessing to the people of Aboh.

According to him, “When a blessed royal father is on the throne, good things come to his kingdom. Our royal father is blessed. In his reign, Aboh has opened up; it is now accessible, there is a General Hospital, a Polytechnic is under construction, among others; Aboh is developing fast.”

In his speech, the State Commissioner for Works, Mr. Funkekeme Solomon, said the 14.7-kilometre road has linked Aboh to the rest of the world.

The Obi of Aboh, Obi Imegwu II, in an address read by the Secretary of Aboh Traditional Council, Chief J. A. Ozegbe, thanked Governor Uduaghan’s administration for contributing immensely to the development of Aboh Kingdom.

“We wish to fervently appreciate you for appointing our sons and daughters to take care of strategic positions during your tenure. Profoundly, we are overwhelmed and appreciative of your efforts on the completion of the Aboh – Ashaka Road, which is a masterpiece, solid road to link us together economically and socially with even neighbouring state – Rivers via Ndoni,” the royal father said.

At Aradhe, Isoko North Local Government Area, Governor Uduaghan commissioned a 13-kilometre road valued at N1.9 billion. The road links Aradhe to Ushe and Ashaka.
