A governorship aspirant in Delta State, Chief David Edevbie, has said that he is the best among the aspirants bidding to succeed Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan, given his experience in the public and private sectors.
The former Chief of Staff (Principal Secretary) to late President Musa Yar’Adua, told newsmen that he was in the race not because of money or fame, but the need to invest his international administrative and financial management skills to help Delta State achieve the desired greatness.
The former state Commissioner for Finance, said: “I have the requisite knowledge and experience. I was earning millions of pounds before I was 30.
“So, my desire to be governor of the state is not for personal gains, but because everybody seems to know the solution to our problems, but only a few are trying to actually solve them.
“The people who are intellectual, cerebral and have the solution have all abandoned them for politicians we know are not our ‘first 11’. I am in the race because it is time to stop complaining, but time to try and make a difference personally.”
On how he hopes to solve the problems, he said: “In Delta North, potable water is the issue; Delta South do not have bridges, while Central lacks industries. I have a draft document on the solution to these challenges and many others.
“I will finalise it into a document of the people after a town hall by town hall meeting round the state for consultation.”
