As controversy continue to trail Minister of the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs , Elder Godsday Orubebe governorship ambition in Delta State, group under the aegis of Delta Movement for Good Governance has advised him to stay clear of the state governorship race because he would lose woefully.
Speaking to Urhobotoday on behalf of the group, the Coordinator of Delta Movement for Good Governance, Comrade Jackson Akponewhe who said Orubebe contesting for the post of governor in Delta State is against Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) zoning principle hence he is from the same zone with the incumbent Governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, added that his attempt to contest is against the law of justice and nature.
“We are advising him not to do so because if he does he will fail”, Akponewhe vowed.
Akponewhe who pointed out that it is morally wrong for Orubebe to dream of contesting any election in Delta State stressed, “Is he the only person in Delta State? We are advising him not to spend his money in the name of governorship election. We know he has the money. If he does, he will not even win the primaries. As I am talking to you he has been suspended from Burutu LGA Chapter of PDP. May be he will cross to another party, I wish him success. But
I know he will fail if he contests”
While declaring that they have no candidate of their choice for now, Akponewhe said they would work with other progressive minded groups or Deltans to produce a credible candidate that would emerges as governor of Delta State in 2015.
“What we need in Delta state for now or in 2015 is a credible person who will carry all Deltans
along. Somebody who will develop the entire Delta state not a sectional governor,” he said.
