As the battle over who takes over from Delta State governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan in 2015 intensifies, South South Youth Political Forum, SSYPF, currently evaluating past performances of aspirants, has said it will never support the ambition of the immediate past Niger Delta Affairs Minister, Elder Godsday Orubebe.
SSYPF said it had decided to work against Orubebe because failed to attract dividends of democracy to the people of the South-South during his tenure as minister.
National Chairman of SSYPF, Alaowei Promise Lawuru, in a statement, after a meeting with delegates from Burutu, Delta State, said: “We the youths in South-South are not pleased with Orubebe’s performance because he failed to touch the lives of our people during his tenure.
“We will, therefore, not support such a man who didn’t have the pains of Deltans and the Niger Delta people at heart. At our meeting on whether to work for Orubebe or not, we gave reasons, why Orubebe cannot become Uduaghan’s successor and at the right time before the primaries, they shall be published.”
