All may not be well between Former Delta Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan and governorship aspirant in the satate, Pat Utomi.
Uduaghan who spoke at a stakeholders’ meeting of the PDP in Asaba, advised Utomi, to contest the post of councillor in his ward, instead of aiming to be the next governor.
Utomi was also told to stop spreading falsehood against past leaders of the state in his quest to contest the 2019 governorship election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress.
Utomi had, during his visit to members of the APC in Agbarha-Otor in Ughelli North, last week, accused previous governments in Delta, including that of Uduaghan, of mortgaging the future of the state through excessive borrowing and funds diverted to build personal properties abroad.
Uduaghan said, despite Utomi’s national and international connections, he has not contributed to Delta’s development.
He pointed out that during his administration, he appointed Utomi as chairman and member of several committees but that the latter failed to use the opportunities to contribute or attract development to the state.
“You should ask Utomi, where is the Silicon Valley? He took us to his hometown, Ibusa, for the foundation-laying ceremony of the Silicon Valley, to date, there is nothing to show that the project has commenced. He has contested the Presidential election, he now wants to be a governor. i think he should start from his ward, he should contest the post of councillor,” Uduaghan lashed out.
