NATIONAL Treasurer of Urhobo Consultative Forum (UCF) and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olorogun John Oguma hasÂ expressed confidence that Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan would be re-electedÂ in 2011, saying that he has achieved much since assumption of office.
Oguma, who stated this shortly after presenting two brand new buses to the Uduaghan Ladies Vanguard recently in Warri, commended the state government for its efforts at realising the administrationâ€™s three-point agenda.
According to him, â€œI believe Uduaghan would be re-elected because of his track record. He is tested and trusted. I believe Deltans know this and I know he is going to be re-elected.â€
He further told party faithful that Governor Uduaghanâ€™s achievements since assumption to office is rooted on two issues, the first being his three point agenda that focused on peace and security, human and capital development and infrastructural development and secondly, the skillful planning and implementation of the budget.
â€œHis sterling leadership served as the springboard to the successful implementation of numerous capital projects. He has recorded significant structural development in both rural and urban areas in all the twenty-five councils that spread across the three senatorial districts in Delta State. He has constructed brand new roads and bridges, provided standard rural electrification projects to complement the electrification projects initiated by ex-governor James Ibori,â€ he argued.
In addition, Oguama commended what he described as the governorâ€™s policy on healthcare, saying that it has improved the lives of the people.
Continuing, he said â€œGovernor Uduaghan started the Asaba international airport and the expansion of the Osubi airport to open up Delta Stateâ€™s industrial and tourism potentials to the outside world and also attract investors to boost the economy of the state.
â€œHe thinks far ahead of those around him. I share his vision of a prosperous Delta State.
He is a humanist and a leader determined to leave his footprints in the sands of time by impacting positively on the lives of the people of the state, irrespective of their social status.
â€œHe is the best for now and we have resolved to present him again to Deltans in 2011. This is unshakeable and irrevocable. Those opposed to his second term bid do not have the political clout to abort this objective.â€
