Topmost Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirant in the 2015 general elections in Delta state, Sir Anthony Chuks Obuh has made a few notches in his gubernatorial intention by saying he is sufficiently exposed in what Delta requires to build on the solid foundation laid by the Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan’s administration.
Overwhelmed with the tremendous turn-out for his retirement thanksgiving service at Agbor, Ika South local government area of Delta state on Sunday, September 21, 2014, Obuh enthused that “I want to tell you that I believe in myself and that I am sufficiently exposed in what Delta requires to build on the very solid foundation that has been laid by the present administration.”
While noting that the state has made remarkable strides on the platform of “Delta Beyond Oil” by growing industries, building human capital and developing infrastructure, Obuh opined that “It is necessary that we continue to build on this foundation”, urging Deltans to desist from anything could frustrate the ongoing development in the state.
Obuh who pledged his unalloyed loyalty and support to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said, “We cannot achieve what we want if we do not have a great and vibrant political party. That is why I would continue to support, respect and maintain what PDP have built, not only in Delta state but across Nigeria, to make it the strongest political party in Africa.
“I believe that with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), we can move Delta forward. We can build on our present state of development and our children will celebrate us tomorrow. I want to share in that glory.”
He emphasised that the ongoing consultation with members of the political class, traditional rulers, chiefs, members of the state executive, legislature as well as members of the public service is to seek their blessing, ask what they think about him and telling them what he can offer.
“Our consultation covers all spectrum; the young, elderly, women, particularly the youths because we want to represent every segment of this society”, Obuh said.
He however appealed to all Deltans to give him the opportunity to serve them in a greater capacity and assuring them of effective service and delivery of democracy dividends.
“I think with my experience, I stand on a good stead to take on from where this administration will end. And that is if I have the support of the good people of Delta state.
“Give me that opportunity and I will not fail you. I will continue to reach each and everyone of you to ask your support, counsel, direction before we make a formal declaration. But we have a mission to serve you better, to serve you more in a higher capacity. We thank God for what he has made out of us. We will not fail you. God bless all of you. I believe in you, I believe in Delta state”, he concluded.
The thanksgiving service held at Saint John the Baptist Catholic Church, Agbor was a gathering of crème da la crème across Delta State.
