Okowa to Uduaghan: You can’t escape EFCC in APC

Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, yesterday chided his predecessor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan for dumping the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC) to evade arrest by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over his financial recklessness and highhandedness. The governor said eight years tenure of Uduagbhan was sad and uneventful, said he left the state in a messy condition and joined APC for protection.


Okowa urged the former governor to do more in conduct and utterances to convince the people of the state about his non-existence legacies in his desperate desire to become a Senator to represent Delta South senatorial district, saying his dwindling political fortune, which failed him as a governor in 2015, when he could not deliver on his senatorial ambition, will not still fly next year on cheap political point. The governor picked offence over Uduaghan’s outburst on a television programme, where he pointed out that PDP and Okowa’s days were numbered at the Government House.


The governor, who was represented by the Commissioner for Information, Mr. Patrick Ukah, at a press briefing in Asaba, however, rejected the former governor’s allegations that Okowa was on a vindictive mission to destroy his legacies.


He noted that Uduaghan’s outburst that APC will takeover Delta State would be an exercise in futility, saying “a man, who could not summon courage to vie for a senatorial election as a sitting governor is here, boasting about leading a failed mission to unseat a hardworking governor (Okowa), who is committed to cleaning up the mess he left behind in his eight years of uneventful and sad era as governor. “The former governor has no legacy in his eight years in government, thus his daydreaming claims of legacy projects will not fly.


We challenged him to tell the word about the legacy projects he claimed to have left behind, which this government has destroyed.” He berated the Uduaghanled administration for lavishing N700 million on failed free healthcare delivery in urban cities without positive impact on rural dwellers, saying: “No Primary Healthcare Facility (PHC) in rural communities where the actual people that needed the free healthcare was involved in the programme.”
