2015: Delta Guber Race Open to All Districts – Ominimini

Chief Ominimini Obiuwevbi

LAGOS JANUARY 10TH (URHOBOTODAY) — NATIONAL Chairman of Urhobo Political Movement, UPM, Chief Ominimini Obiuwevbi, has said that Delta State governorship position was open to candidates from the three senatorial districts in the state to contest in 2015.
Obiuwevbi, in a chat with newsmen, shortly after the end of year party of the group in Ughelli, said: “Those clamouring for zoning of the state governorship in 2015 have nothing to offer.”

Insisting that the governorship position should be thrown open to all credible Deltans, irrespective of their ethnic nationalities and senatorial district, he urged credible Urhobo indigenes to join the 2015 governorship race.
Enjoining President Goodluck Jonathan to contest the presidency in 2015, he said that the group had passed a vote of confidence on him for what it termed “overwhelming performance of his administration.”
He commended the state governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan for deeming it fit to appoint Urhobo sons into notable positions, “such as the Ministry of Water Resources, the entire Ministry of Education, that is the Ministry of Higher Education and Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education, Ministry of Housing and to crown it all, the Ministry of Finance, which is the coordinating Ministry of the Delta State economy.
“Giving all these ministries to Urhobo sons shows that Uduaghan has the interest of the Urhobo at heart and we, therefore, commend him as Urhobo people. We resolved also that there was no day we zoned the governorship position in Delta State. Those who are clamouring for governorship on the basis of zoning have nothing to offer and that is why they are saying there is zoning.”
