DELTA State Governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan has warned all his political appointees to desist from granting political interviews.
The warning came on the heels of recent political fisticuffs between the Chairman of the Delta State Chapter of the ruling Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), Barr. Peter Nwaoboshi and Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Comrade Ovuozuorie Macaulay over power shift agreements.
The Governor who gave the warning today (Sunday, January 26, 2014) said anything capable of overheating the polity ahead of the 2015 general elections must be avoided.
“As far as I am concerned, no political appointee in Delta State should grant political interview so that we do not overheat the system, you can grant interviews on the official duties of your department, ministry or agency”, the Governor stated.
Besides, Uduaghan noted that with the dates of the general elections drawing near, political office seekers should not be distracted by lies and rumours but charged them to be focused in their quest to achieve their political ambition.
In particular, he charged the various aspirants to go about their businesses in a peaceful and lawful manner as the government would not tolerate acts or utterances that were capable of breaching the peace of the state.
“We should not say things that will heat up the polity; our utterances should be matured, edifying and guarded. God Almighty is the one that put us in positions, no matter what you do if God says a person will enter an office, that person will make it to that office”, he stated at a memorial thanksgiving service for the parents of the Speaker of Delta State House of Assembly, Engr. Victor Ochei at St. Peter’s Anglican Church, Onicha-Olona, Aniocha North local government area.
