Delta State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, has charged governorship aspirants in the state to desist from engaging in divisive actions capable of threatening the peace of the state.
The governor gave the charge weekend in Asaba at the swearing-in ceremony of the elected chairmen of Ndokwa East and Ethiope East local government areas of the state, Mrs Nkechi Chukwurah and Mrs Faith Majemite respectively.
Uduaghan, who decried the attitude of some of the governorship aspirants, stated that he was not afraid of any gang-up against him, but insisted that in the interest of the state, they should speak the truth at all times.
“Those who are aspiring to be governor should stop creating troubles. I have tried to be fair to all in our journey towards 2015”, he said.
He added: “Two weeks ago, during the ward congresses, I had meetings with the governorship aspirants. Every aspirant and every leader contributed to the emergence of the delegates through a consensus list and they all applauded the free and fair nature of the congress that brought up the delegates list.
“This the panel took to Abuja and some aspirants even went on television to commend the process. So, where is this opposition coming from?
“Tell your friends who are aspirants to take it easy. Delta State belongs to all of us. They should stop creating problems”.
