By Festus Ahon
UGHELLI — THE Special Project Director, Asaba-Ughelli Road  Dualisation, Mr. Sunny Onuesoke, has described the victory of Governor Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan of Delta State at the retrial tribunal as the will of God and urged Chief Peter Okocha to join other Deltans in their support for the PDP government in the state.

The retrial tribunal, yesterday in Asaba, struck out the petition of Chief Peter Okocha of the Action Congress (AC) on the grounds that there was ‘nothing like unlawful exclusion’, pointing out that Okocha was not validly nominated.

Onuesoke, who fielded questions from newsmen at Ughelli, Delta State, on arrival from Asaba after witnessing the tribunal proceedings, said the victory was a complete show that the judiciary still remained the hope of the common man and appealed to all those involved in the case to stop pursuing it forthwith.

According to him, Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan is committed to the overall development of the state.
He noted that the state has witnessed greater development since he assumed office on May 29, 2009, as governor of the state, adding that Governor Uduaghan was building on the legacies of the immediate past governor of the state, Chief James Onanefe Ibori.

While charging Deltans not to relent in their support for the governor, Onuesoke restated the need for political detractors of the governor to have a rethink in the interest of sustainable development of the state.

Onuesoke, who is the Nigerian Director of  N4GG, said Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan was God’s sent governor of the state, stressing that his achievements in the last two years of his administration was a testimony of his good sense of leadership.

He commended Deltans for coming out en masse yesterday to celebrate the governor’s victory at the tribunal, and pointed out that celebration was a display of the love they have for him and his deputy, Prof Amos Utuama.
