A member of the House of Representatives, Mr. Ndudi Elumelu, has described as “deliberate falsehood and diversionary,” reports that he is to contest for Delta North senatorial seat in the 2015 general elections.
Elumelu, in a statement in Asaba, said the report was the handiwork of some interested politicians, who want to confuse millions of well meaning people of Delta State that he was now interested in going to the Senate.
Elumelu said: “I am still consulting with stakeholders in the three senatorial districts in the state and a formal declaration of my intention shall be made known in due course. Apart from being a complete lie, the report sought to misinform the good people of Delta State, especially, the people of Delta North, of my aspiration come 2015.
“I have never discussed with anybody or group of persons at any time of my alleged intention to run for the senate. What I am doing now, is consultations with the people of Delta State including opinion leaders, just like other aspirants, on the way forward ahead of 2015.”
