Delta State governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, weekend, warned those aspiring to govern the state in 2015 against shedding blood, insisting that no blood-thirsty politician will succeed him.
Uduaghan said this at the 8th convocation of Delta State University, Abraka, where over 4,600 students (first degrees, diplomas and postgraduate degrees) graduated.
The governor admonished those vying for the state governorship to go about it peacefully, adding that it was only God that gives power.
He congratulated graduands and expressed hope that they would not have difficulties in getting job with the ‘Delta Beyond Oil’ initiative.
Insisting that oil alone could not sustain the economy of the state, necessitating the diversification of the state’s economy, he said that the government was doing everything to encourage private investors to invest in the state.
Uduaghan commended Mr. Tony Elumelu, who is the pro-chancellor and chairman of the university Governing Council for his investment initiative in the state, saying the entrepreneur was doing a lot to boost power generation in Ughelli Power Station since he took over the power plant.
He thanked the Vice Chancellor for the good management of the university and announced that the state government will disburse N150 million as car loans to the university workers.
