THE Inspired Youths, a formidable group in Delta State has drummed support for the election of the immediate past governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan for the Delta South Senatorial seat come 2019.
The group who spoke through their leader, Joy Omodafe, reiterated that support for the former governor is not unconnected with his landmark achievements during his tenure in the state.
She disclosed that they are prepared to mobilize thousands of their supporters who are mostly youths and women from across the Delta South senatorial district come 2019 elections, especially as it has to do with their representation in the upper chamber of the National Assembly.
The group said they have not felt the impact of democratic dividends for a long time, but in 2019, things will be different as they are looking forward to a quality representation with Uduaghan at the National Assembly.
They also disclosed that one of the reasons they are prepared to follow Uduaghan is that he is synonymous with excellence.
“He is not only a hard worker but a master planner whom observers believe stands a better chance with the growing strength and popularity of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the state.
“As Delta State governor, he did a lot for the state in health, education, roads, human capital development, job creation and meeting the needs of youths and the aged.
“There is no one who did not benefit from his programmes and this has endeared him to the people. Uduaghan commands respect amongst all the ethnic groups in the state, so it will be difficult for his opponent to defeat him” she said
