Uduaghan Dozes Political Tension in Delta, Joins Okowa to Commission Mega Projects
LAGOS JUME 1ST (URHOBOTODAY)-The political tension as to what camp Delta State Governor, Dr Emmauel Uduaghan belonged to was put to rest yesterday when he joined Delta State Governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa in commissioning mega projects in the state.
Before now, rumour had it that Uduaghan had parted ways with Okowa as a result of what happened in the last Delta State PDP governorship primaries election where he supported Tony Obuh and later switched to David Edevbie.
There were even insinuation in online media that Uduaghan had joined his fellow tribesman, Chief Ayiri Emami in All Progress Congress (APC ) with the intention of running for the senatorial seat to represent Delta South.
Those claims may have however been put to rest as Uduahan to the admiration of all and surprise of some, jointly commissioned project with Ifeanyi Okowa at Ogbemudein Model Secondary School, Agbor, Ika South Local Government Area of the state on Tuesday, May 31, 2016.
Uduaghan at the occasion, eulogized Governor Okowa for his giant achievements within one year of being in office despite the huge economic challenges and commended the Governor for inviting him to commission projects as part of activities to mark his one year in office.
“I want to thank you (Governor Okowa) for inviting me to commission this project, I am happy that you did not abandon the project,” Dr Uduaghan remarked.
Okowa who recalled that the project commissioned was initiated by former Governor Uduaghan’s administration said, “We must commend the immediate past Governor for starting the construction of these schools, though, only four of them have been completed at the moment, we hope to complete all and construct new ones.”
While assuring that he will consolidate on the projects initiated by his predecessors, Governor Okowa specifically, thanked former Governor Uduaghan for leaving the United Kingdom to attend the commissioning exercise, asserting, “it is my prayer and hope that one day, all the schools in Delta State will look like this edifice.”
