Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State has warned governorship aspirants in the state to desist from engaging in divisive actions that are capable of breaching the peace of the state.

Uduaghan, who gave the charge yesterday in Asaba, also urged the aspirants to be truthful. He spoke during while swearing-in the elected Chairmen of Ndokwa East and Ethiope East local government councils of Delta State, Mrs. Nkechi Chukwurah, and Mrs. Faith Majemite respectively.

Uduaghan, who frowned at the attitude of some of the governorship aspirants, stated that he was not afraid of any gang-up against him. He, however, insisted that in the interest of the state, they should speak the truth.

“Those who are aspiring to be governor should stop creating trouble. I have tried to be fair to all in our journey towards 2015,” he said, adding: “Two weeks ago during the ward congresses, I had meetings with the governorship aspirants, every aspirant and every leader contributed to the emergence of the delegates through a consensus list, which they signed and they all applauded the free and fair nature of the congress that brought up the delegates list.

“This, the panel took to Abuja and some aspirants while collecting or submitting their forms even went on television to commend the process, so, where is this opposition coming from?”

“Tell your friends who are aspirants to take it easy. Delta State belongs to all of us, they should stop creating problems and they should retrace their steps so that they can land safely and get to their destinations.”

The governor congratulated the chairmen for emerging victorious in the council elections, saying they were successful because they did not create the problem that prolonged their electoral process.

He urged the newly sworn-in chairmen to concentrate on the area of security, payment of staff salaries and ensure that they engage in progressive projects in their local government areas, noting that women are doing well in the politics of Delta State.

According to him, “Your elections have proven that women can be elected into office, women should be elected and they should put themselves forward to be elected. Today, we have four elected chairmen of councils and so many vice chairmen who are women. Any woman who puts herself forward for elective position will get maximum support if she is loyal, dedicated and does not gang-up against the people.”

Responding on behalf of the chairmen, Mrs. Majemite thanked Governor Uduaghan and members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for making it possible for them to be elected and assured that they will not let the people down.

“All that you will hear from us is that we are performing, we will not let you down,” she assured.
