Delta 2015: Two Anioma Indigenes in Media Clash over Governorship Candidate

Share This

It all began with a publication dated 4th March 2013 by voice of Delta on 2015: The Anioma Candidacy II. Barrister Mary Agbajoh made a comment on the post which reads,
“For me… Governorship of Delta State is not a thing of joke, Not on “A PLATTER OF GOLD “. So I advice numerous aspirants from Anioma # Delta North to work extremely HARD to earn the peoples mandate OTHERWISE, no show. Hope they realize President Jonathan quashed zoning.

This statement which is believed not to have gone down well with the Aniomas prompted a response from Barrister Eugene Uzum to Barrister Mary Agbajoh.
Uzum Response Reads,
“ Charity begins at home. For obvious reasons I will limit myself to issues of Delta State and 2015 Guber. Since Agbajoh says It’s her personal opinion, let her realise that as a leader her words is authority to her followers and very persuasive in Government circles. Leaders need to Reflect on the nature of our democracy and the journey so far. We cannot afford to sow disunity and call it our Personal view. Deltans must realize that the cause of our problem in Nigeria regarding leadership was when some set said they are born to rule and today that slogan is a challenge to us all as we approach 2015. Delta is for all of us stakeholders. Let the finger of God touch all in the interest of our tomorrow.”
In another reply to the later statement, Mary Agbajoh maintained that,
“Honestly! I don’t understand why this fusses over #2015 Guber Race and Anioma aspiration.
Yes, our Delta State has evolved and the people count more than in the past especially with President Jonathan unprecedented “Freest and Fairest” in recent times #Edo and Ondo hence we must allow Deltans Decide their fate in 2015 by voting for the best man who can marshal their Needs to the centre according to our renowned OBJ,” when the Head and Tail” bear same colour the body is in tune…
As a stakeholder, I repeat Delta state Governorship seat will not be offered on a platter of Gold, so let whosoever seek for the Number one seat work very very hard to earn the peoples vote OTHERWISE…”
As at the time of filing this report, the last statement came from Barrister Eugene Uzum who stated that,
“ Yes, I totally agree that votes must be earned and not muscled or stolen. The doctrine of one man one vote has come to stay. We also note that there exist a convention in the PDP from Federal to Ward level that power is key because of the nature of our democracy and bigotry. That’s why we have the Federal Character and even Federal, State and Local Government Service Commission corroborate this position that the best from sections should be taken into consideration. The PDP chairmanship position was zoned to a section that’s why Bamanga Tukur emerged. Am sure a lot of Nigerians did not look westward after Obasanjo’s Regime. I submit that election should be free and fair. Power shift is key. If we want to jettison the convention of power shift, we should allow it move round the country and senatorial districts. Have you asked why the President and his Deputy cannot come from same Geopolitical Zone??”
Voiceofdelta.com studied the situation on ground and gave opportunity to both parties to air their all to avoid being labelled as sentimental from any quarter as our interest is strictly bridging the gap between Deltans and the Government speaking words of truth.
