I’m Going to Senate to Better Lives of Oil Producing Communities-Uduaghan

Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan

LAGOS NOVEMBER 17TH (URHOBOTODAY)-Delta State Governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan declared at the weekend that his ambition to represent Delta South Senatorial District in the National Assembly is fueled by the need to enable oil producing communities have 10 percent equity participation in oil companies operating in their areas.
Speaking at the weekend while addressing a meeting of the Executive Committee of the State’s Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) attended by aspirants and leaders of the party at its secretariat in Asaba, Uduaghan said that he was determined to ensure that the Niger Delta region was no longer short-changed.
Uduaghan promised to pursue with vigour the participation of oil producing communities in their naturally given resources to address years of neglect and insensitivity to their plight by the oil companies.
“My desire is to ensure that the 10 per cent equity participation by oil producing communities in oil companies sees the light of the day, my passion is to vigorously pursue this goal … this informed the decision to represent my people (Delta South Senatorial District) at the Senate,” he said.
The Governor said he has demonstrated the spirit of sportsmanship in the pursuit of his senatorial aspiration, promising to embrace his opponents should he wins or loses as politics, to him was not a do-or-die affair.
Uduaghan dismissed allegations of imposition and manipulation of the ward delegates lists levelled against him by some leaders of the party, pleading with aspirants to shun mudslinging and falsehood as well as acts capable of inciting members of the party against one another.
