Former Governor of Delta State, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan has congratulated his duaghter, Orode Uduaghan on her inauguration as a Commissioner and member of the state Executive Council.
Ms Uduaghan who was sworn-in alongside 25 other commissioners, was the delight of the event as her parents who once held sway in the state, watched their daughter remake history.
In an emotional laden statement posted on his verified Facebook Page, Dr Uduaghan expressed joy at the historic journey of his daughter; a moment he likened to his call to duty in 1999.
Uduaghan who served as a two term governor from 2007 to 2015, wished his daughter a fruitful endeavour as she contributes her quota to the administration of Governor Sheriff Oborevwori.
The statement as obtained, reads below.
My lovely wife Roli and I were the proudest parents earlier today as my family watched our star girl and Princess took her oath of office alongside other eminent Deltans as Commissioner and Member of the Delta State Executive Council.
The event made me nostalgic about my early days in politics when I first took similar oath as Commissioner in 1999.
Congratulations Orode on your portfolio as Commissioner of Humanitarian Affairs and Girl Child Entrepreneurship.
Your new role didn’t come to us as a surprise because over the years, you have demonstrated strong penchant for selfless service and empowerment of the girl child.
As you begin to do what you love in service of our dear state and Gov. Oborevwori, I ask God to give you wisdom and strength to function excellently in your new office.
Congratulations my Honourable Commissioner!
