UGHELLIâ€”THE member representing Ughelli South in Delta State House of Assembly, Taleb Tebite, has described as divine, the tribunal ruling this week upholding the election of Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan as governor of the state.
Tebite said the tribunal victory was meant for the entire good people of the state and urged Chief Great Ogboru and his supporters to sheathe their swords and join forces with the governor and his deputy, Prof. Amos Utuama, to move the state forward.
According to him, the state has been witnessing greater development in all spheres of life since the duo of Uduaghan and Utuama came into government in May 2007.
He added that they were building on the achievements of their national leader, Chief James Onanefe Ibori.
He noted that infrastructure were being radically developed, pointing out that the people were also being developed along side.
Tebite said very many Deltans have been lifted above poverty through the state governmentâ€™s micro credit programme.
He maintained that â€œGovernor Emmanuel Uduaghan and his Deputy, Prof Amos Utuama have done well so much that they deserve a second tenure.
â€œI want to urge all Deltans, irrespective of their political belief, to join this administration in its resolve to make Delta State second to none in the country.
â€œLook at the effort of the government in the maintenance and sustenance of peace and security in the state. The last council election we held in Ughelli South, my constituency last month, was very peaceful, free and fair.
â€œAs I speak to you today, the Asaba International Airport is getting near completion, work is ongoing on Ughelli / Asaba road dualization.
â€œIn my constituency, there are very many completed and ongoing projects in the health and educational sectors. We are not lacking in the area of road network either.
â€œTherefore, I want to enjoin Deltans to give Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan and his deputy, Prof Amos Utuama, a second term in office and I am sure that the state will be better for it because it will pave way for continuity and afford the present administration the opportunity to complete its good projects and programmes it has for Deltans.â€
He added that all legal battles against the governor should be dropped, noting that such cases were distracting him.
