A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Delta State, Mr. Andrew Aganbi, has described Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghanâ€™s victory over his opponent in the 2007 polls, Chief Eloka Okocha, as one of the best news item he had read this year.
Aganbi in a statement yesterday, said the ultimate victory was another validation ofÂ Uduaghanâ€™s popularity among Deltans, especially on his programmes, which have continued to impact positively on the people.
Describing Uduaghan as a builder who has erected a structure up to the lintel level, Aganbi said Deltans should support him until he has roofed the structure, stressing thatÂ Deltans should give the Governor a fresh mandate in 2011.
It will be recalled that Chief Okocha had gone to the Court of Appeal, praying the court to quash Uduaghanâ€™s victory at the governorship election in 2007,Â which the tribunal headed by Justice G.B. Briki-Okolosi had upheld, declaring Uduaghan as the duly elected Governor of Delta State.
