As the campaign for the bye-election into the vacant position of Delta Central Senatorial District at the Senate hots up, the state governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, has vowed to support only a candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
He also said that he has not endorsed any candidate from any political party for the forth coming Delta Central Senatorial election in the state.
Governor Uduaghan explained that PDP will do all in its power to win back the Senatorial seat and charged the party members to work assiduously to produce a candidate to enable the party work as a united front for its success in that election.
He confessed that as Delta State Governor, he has not endorsed any candidate for the Senatorial election, but will support and campaign for a candidate duly nominated by PDP members from the district.
According to Governor Uduaghan, “I have not anointed anybody for the forth coming election in Delta Central Senatorial District. Any candidate that wants to vie for that position must be nominated by PDP members from the district and should be a candidate acceptable to all members of the district. We are all ready to come out to campaign for that person.“
This diclosure was made by the governor on Friday, August 02, 2013 when he addressed Deltans that came to felicitate with the newly sworn-in Judge of the Customary Court of Appeal and chairmen and members of the newly inaugurated Board of Internal Revenue and Advisory Council on the Prerogative of Mercy in Asaba.
While confirming that it was the responsibility of PDP members in the Senatorial district to nominate a candidate acceptable to all of them, Uduaghan advised all interested candidates to go to the field, work hard, meet all members and fight for the nomination as he was prepared to campaign for any candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) nominated by the people of the Senatorial district.
Governor Uduaghan noted that plans were already in top gear to conduct local government elections in the state as the State Independent Electoral Commission was set to deliver on this responsibility. He promised to lead the campaign for the People Democratic Party candidates in that election.
