Delta State Governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, has invoked ‘Holy Ghost’ fire on those who plan to deceive the electorate in the state to secure their votes in the April elections.
The governor, who kicked off his governorship campaign at Obiaruku in Ukwuani Local Government Area of the state, said he will never promise Deltans what he would not do for them, assuring that he will accelerate infrastructural growth and improve the living standard of the people, if given another four years.
Dr Uduaghan said he will construct more roads, tackle erosion problems and make Asaba one of the best state capitals in the country.
He also promised the people of Ukwani council, that they will continue to enjoy oil producing status and enjoined them to vote for all Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidates in the April elections.
The governor appealed to the people not to waste their votes on other parties but should support the PDP government, which has good programmes for them.
“I promise to improve the standard of our people. I also promise to prudently manage the resources of the state and accelerate development,” he said.
He disclosed that the Asaba International Airport, one of the biggest in the country will soon be functioning, dismissing criticism over the delay in the completion of the airport, the governor explained that the normal time frame for the construction of an airport was seven years.
Continuing, he said “there is no delay in the construction of Asaba Airport. It is something that takes up to seven years. The Asaba Airport is just three years so I don’t see any delay.”
