ASABA â€” ELDER statesman and former Federal Commisioner of Information, Chief Edwin Clark, has declared that he has nothing against the Delta State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, despite their political differences, saying: â€œIn politics, sons have contested against fathers but that has not severed the father-son relationship.â€
Clark stated this when the state deputy governor led a delegation of government officials including the state Commissioner for Women Affairs, Community and Social Development, Queen Mother Victoria Ikenchuku to Kiagbodo to flag off the State Rehabilitation Life Skills Acquisition Programme of the Women Development Centre.
He stated that â€œif he (Uduaghan) had anything against me and my people, he would not have allowed the skill acquisition centre to be sited in Kiagbodo.â€
The Women Affairs Commissioner said the centre was expected â€œto give opportunity to young girls and women who, for one reason or the other, were unable to complete their secondary education which left some of them unengaged and unproductive.â€
The Women Development Centre, Kiagbodo was built by Shell Petroleum and Development Company, SPDC, as part of its corporate social responsibility to its host community and handed over to the Delta State GovernmentÂ in 2007 for effective management.
