Politician Calls For Deltans To Vote Wisely


With a few months to the governorship re-run election in Delta State between Great Ovedje Ogboru of the Democratic People’s Party, DPP and Emmanuel Uduaghan  of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, who was sacked from the office by the Appeal Court, a member of the Delta State stakeholders forum, Mr. Shola Emiko  Amoye, has called on all Deltans to come out en masse to cast their vote wisely for a credible candidate.

Recently, the court ordered a rerun election in the state, making the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Chike Obi, to be sworn in as the acting  governor of the state.

In a statement made by Mr. Amoye, he called on all Deltans to come out en masse to vote  wisely in the re-run election.

He, however, condemned the Uduaghan administration for allegedly looting the treasury of the state, lamenting that the state has not witnessed any  development since he came to power as the governor of the state.

“Deltans have been living in abject poverty. There is no development in the state, a state endowed with mineral resources. Enough of this suffering, we want  a leader that has vision,” he said

Reacting to the recent ruling that the former governor of Delta State, Mr. James Ibori must be extradited to the United Kingdom to face money laundering  charges, Mr Amoye applauded the Dubai’s highest court, saying he wants the likes of Uduaghan to be tried by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission,  EFCC, for allegedly looting the state treasury.

He, however, pointed accusing fingers at the interim governor of the state for sending a bill to the State House of Assembly, demanding for N20 billion.   “What does he wants to use that huge amount of money for? With less than 50 days for him to vacate office. That shows the level of corruption that is going  on in the state,” he said.
