2015: Uduaghan Accused of Lobbying with Money to Replace James Manager in Senate

Delta State Governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan

LAGOS OCTOBER 22ND (URHOBOTODAY)-Barring any last minute change in plan, The Paradigm can authoritatively report that Delta State governor, Mr. Emmanuel Uduaghan has concluded plan to join the upper chambers in the National Assembly. A source in the know of the governors intention hinted that Uduaghan has began mobilization of politicians from Delta South to see to the realization of his ambition.
The source noted that the governor who is frightened daily due to his numerous corrupt files before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) wants to take solace in the senate, which he would use to divert the anti corruption agency. An impeccable source in the cabinet told The Paradigm that the governor is using the commissioner of works, Solomon Funkemeke as a front to talk to youth leaders and politicians to ‘ask that he contest’.
“Don’t mind him, he wants to make it look like the people of Delta South are the one asking him to contest, when he is actually pumping money into the project”, the source said. The governor we reliably gathered has amassed enough money from the state treasury to give the current senator, James Manager a run for his money. All machinery of the Delta South Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been put on alert and coerced with money to make sure that the governor is given the party ticket.
The source noted that from next year, billboards and adverts will be rolled out, sponsored by phantom groups, all calling for the governor to join the senatorial race, but all paid for by the state government. With this recent development, we gathered that James Manager has taken the matter to the presidency, asking him to stop Mr. Uduaghan from eyeing the seat if the party must win the zone in the 2015 election.
