Ukah Rebukes Oshiomhole Over Comments to Install APC Government in Delta State


Delta State Commissioner for Information, Mr. Patrick Ukah, has chided the immediate past governor of Edo State and leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, over his comments on Delta State.

The former Governor had at a mega rally of the party in Benin City, Edo State, on Friday, January 19, 2018 declared that the party would extend its coast in the South South by installing an APC governor in Delta State.

However, Mr. Ukah, in a statement signed by his Media Assistant, Mr. Sam Ijeh, in Asaba on Saturday, said that the choice of words, especially the use of ‘by installing’, by the former labour leader is a manifestation of his limited knowledge of politics as against unionism were he claims to be a master.

The Commissioner for Information expressed surprise that Comrade Oshiomhole, who is a leader of a party that has brought untold hardship to Nigerians, will be talking of installing a Governor in a state that is not his own instead of suggesting ways of how to make living bearable for Nigerians.

Mr. Ukah posited that with the numerous developmental projects going on in various parts of the state, Deltans are satisfied with the performance of the present administration and this was made manifest by the resounding victory recorded by the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in the recently conducted local government election in Delta State.

The Commissioner for Information advised the former Governor to first join hands with others in his party to put their house in order by conducting a successful national convention that is long overdue instead of engaging in a wild goose chase.

He said that Comrade Oshiomhole should not be deceived by fair-weather politicians who are leaving the PDP for the APC describing them as spent forces who feel uncomfortable with the reforms presently going on in the PDP.

Mr. Ukah said Delta was in safe hands under the leadership of Senator Okowa adding that those who will attempt to flex muscles with the Governor would be be denounced and disgraced by the people.

He said the likes of Comrade Oshiomole were responsible for putting Nigeria in comatose thereby taking the country that was on steady growth, several steps backward.

The propaganda used to deceive Nigerians into voting APC into power and now regretting their actions will not fly in Delta State, the Commissioner for Information said.

It will be recalled that the former Edo state Governor, Adams Oshiomhole while receiving decampees from PDP to APC at a mega rally at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City on Friday January 20, 2017, reinforced the total clearing and cleansing of the opposition in the state, who, according to him, balkanised Edo state almost beyond repair.

He stressed that the APC is running on the principle of social democracy, even as he makes a case for the state chapter of the party to reclaim Delta State from the PDP, to extend the developmental strides to their brothers and sisters with whom they formed the old Bendel State.

He said, “Our aim in APC is to transfer power to the people as we have successfully taken power from the few who claimed to be godfathers and impoverished the masses.

On the charge for the state APC to advance into Delta State, he said, “Together, we will sweep whatever is left out of Edo State and Delta. Comrades, we have secured Edo State, now we must advance to Delta. In the spirit of Bendel, which was governed by the late Samuel Ogbemudia, we must carry more brooms to Asaba and sweep all the way to Warri and install an APC governor in Asaba, so that the resources of Asaba can be used for the benefit of Deltans.”
