"How I Averted Plots To Scuttle Delta PDP Guber Pry" -Uduaghan Reveals

Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta has made a breathtaking revelation by letting the cat out of the bag on how he personally averted several plots by yet to be named aspirants and their supporters to disrupt the last Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship primary by all means.

He said he also ensured that the exercise was held without chaos, as he had to deploy security operatives to nip all the plans.          

Recall that Senator Ifeanyi Okowa emerged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) PDP governorship candidate for Delta state after defeating 24 other aspirants in the primary election which held on Monday, December 08, 2014.

Uduaghan disclosed that there were plans by certain individuals to disrupt the primaries and where that failed there was another attempt to switch off the electricity during the counting of votes when it was obvious that Dr. Okowa was leading, stating he had to ensure that the security operatives nipped all the plans.

Uduaghan reiterated his commitment towards a peaceful transition process which according to him made him to sacrifice his Senatorial ambition in the interest of peace, stressing, “there is no position that is too much for us to sacrifice for security reasons, if one person dies you cannot bring him back but any position sacrificed can be regained.”

The governor made these  revelations when members of the Delta Political Vanguard visited him at Government House, Asaba on Monday, December 15, 2014.

Governor Uduaghan however expressed satisfaction with the conduct of the  gubernatorial primaries of the PDP in the state which led to the emergence of Senator Ifeanyi Okowa as the candidate, observing that his greatest joy was the fact that none of the aspirants “as at today has said the process was not free and fair and PDP in Delta State is intact. We don’t have any faction, Dr Okowa’s victory was applauded by all and I am happy that we waded through this process, peacefully, intact and no petition against the election.”
