Peoples’ Movement, a group which comprises Delta Leaders on Friday congratulated Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan on his victory at the Supreme Court.
In a statement issued in Asaba by the group’s Director of Communications, Ibifuro Tatua, they commended the Justices of the Supreme Court for satisfying the electorate and the society at large by dismissing the request of the Democratic People’s Party (DPP) governorship candidate in the 2011 governorship election, ChiefGreat Ovedje Ogboru.
The leaders lauded the judiciary for not yielding to calculated lies about elections in the state, describing the past three governorship elections as the most transparent ever seen in the history of the state.
They praised the governor for the pragmatic steps taken to address the problems in the various sectors, the development of democratic culture and stable polity as well as the creation of jobs for the people.
While emphasizing that God threw up Governor Uduaghan to help extricate the people from the shackles of poverty, enslavement and oppression, the leaders urged Dr. Uduaghan to keep up the good works, irrespective of the antics of some detractors who peddle false stories about the state. ”
“Contrary to impressions implanted by some enemies of the state, Uduaghan has no problem if he decides to seek election into the senate come 2015. If the constitution were to allow a person to rule for life, Deltans at home and abroad will probably beg him to continue, “the statement reads in part.
The leaders who also affirmed their total support to Uduaghan on his quest to develop the state, appealed to office and money seeking politicians to temper ambition and greed with concern for public good and genuine welfare of the people.
“Misguided attacks by some politicians, self-acclaimed youth leaders and their backers will never deter His Excellency from repositioning the state”.
The Peoples’ Movement further thanked the people for the confidence reposed in Uduaghan, assuring that the governor would continue to deliver dividends of democracy to them.
