My projects speak for me, Uduaghan tells critics

By Austin Ogwuda

Asaba — GOVERNOR Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State has said he was not at all perturbed to read in the papers that his administration could not justify its huge revenue profile side by side its expenditure.

He said that the numerous projects executed and ongoing were there to con-vince doubting Thomases that his government was a prudent and focused one.

To clear the air, the governor immediately, after a press chat, Wednesday, took journalists on a tour of the new Government House complex. Before embarking on the tour, the governor said “as part of this media briefing, I will take you to see just one place our money is going into.”

Meanwhile, the National President of Uduaghan Vision, Chief Isaac Anwuzia, has called on the media to be factual in their reports.

Reacting to a recent newspaper publication in a national daily tilted, Delta: Little to show for huge sums, Anwuzia said “there was no contract award for the fencing of Nshiagu College at Ogwashi-Uku as mentioned in the report. I do not have any quarrel if the reporter has his facts, but when falsehood takes the centre stage instead of actual presentation, as was portrayed by the reporter, it becomes appalling and mischievous.

“However, as a leader in the local government, I hereby challenge the writer to unmask the contractor handling the said poorly executed project.”
