The Delta Coalition for Obuh, political pressure group, made up of seasoned politicians in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta State, on Thursday described Sir Tony Chuks Obuh as the best person to replace Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan at Delta State Government House in 2015.
Chairman, Delta Coalition for Obuh, Mr. Anthony Mene in a statement issued, after a meeting with some eminent leaders from the Delta State in Abuja and made available to Blank NEWS Online, said, “Obuh has all the necessary qualities to replace Governor Uduaghan as the governor of Delta State, considering his track records in the civil service and his political savvy which has made him the bride of all political groups in Delta State.”
The statement reiterated that, “Anybody following his political activities since 2011, particularly when he was in the State civil service will agree that he is the right candidate for the coveted post.
“He has the antidote to take our state to the next level of economic and infrastructural development and create more employment opportunities to soak up the remaining army of unemployed youths across the state.
Continuing, the group said, “Even the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is not unmindful of the unique leadership qualities inherent in him, so the party will eventually pick him as the governorship flag bearer.”
They also pointed out that the fear expressed by some politicians over transparency and accountability could be handled appropriately by Obuh who will also continue with the “Delta Beyond Oil” agenda being carried out by the current administration.
“As an administrator of repute and a boardroom guru, with a wealth of experience and a proven record of success in governance and business management, Obuh has proved to Nigerians, particularly the people of Delta State that government is all about accountability to the people.
“He is the best person for the state’s top office. He will transform Delta State to the envy of other states in the federation. He will invigorate the educational system, improve the health care services and keep the economy of the state in good shape,” the group promised.
They, however, submitted that any Deltan’s that is current with political development in the state will know that Obuh is a politician who has the passion to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people.
“Delta Coalition for Obuh, have a liking for any hard working Deltan, who has the interest of the people at heart and who has a very good reputation. Obuh has proved to us beyond any reasonable doubt, that he is the best person to support in the 2015 gubernatorial election in the state. We are sure that those who understand the need for a good leader and a greater Delta State will support him,” the statement added.
In another development, the Delta Coalition for Obuh (DCO), in a statement in Warri, urged all Deltan’s to support Sir Tony Chucks Obuh for the 2015 gubernatorial election in the state, describing him as a detribalized man, who would deliver the dividends of democracy to Deltans without tribal sentiments.
The statement signed by its Chairman, Anthony Mene, said: “The state governor, in 2015, should come from Delta North senatorial district in line with Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rotational policy in the State and such candidate must be one with good pedigree.
“We cannot allow those who have no plans for the future of Delta State and our collective well-being, to discontinue the progress of the Uduaghan administration.
“Deltans must shun people who will be driven by tribal sentiments; people who would want every Deltan to dress like the Anioma people before he or she could get any form of government patronage. And the only man that has the pedigree to deliver without tribal sentiments is Sir Tony Chuks Obuh.”
