Lawmaker condemns attack on gas plant

UGHELLI—THE member representing Ughelli South local government area in Delta State House of Assembly, Olorogun  Taleb Tebite, has condemned the recent attack on the Utorogun gas plant and insisted that the act was not carried out by the people of the constituency.

Tebite, who stated this yesterday while reacting to last week’s attack on the Utorogun gas plant, said the attack was not in the best interest of the economy of the state in particular and the country as a whole.

He said the unwholesome action of those that perpetrated the evil attack was aimed at truncating the peace of the state that the administration of Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan and his Deputy, Prof. Amos Utuama was fighting hard to sustain.

According to him, the action of the perpetrators is also aimed at frustrating the effort of the federal government to improve on power supply to Nigerians, noting that it would be difficult for the power sector to realize its dream of generating 6000 mega watts by the end of 2009.

To this end, he appealed to those behind the attack to stop further attack on the gas plant, pointing out that the people of Ughelli South local government area were known for their peaceful disposition.

Tebite told Deltans to give Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan and Prof Amos Utuama’s administration the opportunity to deliver quality dividends of democracy to them.

Stressing the need for Deltans to also give the duo the opportunity to serve as governor and deputy in 2011, Tebite reiterated that the state governor was poised to improve on the economic well being of the people of the state.

He maintained that the state would witness sustainable development, if Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan and his deputy were re-elected in 2011 as governor and deputy governor respectively.
