Delta State Governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan has attributed Friday’s verdict of the Supreme Court as a vindication of the supreme mandate that he enjoys, as expressed in the will of the people of the state.
In a statement by Felix Ofou, his press secretary, the governor expressed immense gratitude to God and Deltans for the Supreme Court ruling as well as previous victories at the polls and in the courts.
“I owe this victory to God and Deltans. I only pray that our opponents would by now have realised that we enjoy a supreme mandate as expressed in the will of the people. One with God has the Majority”, he said.
Continuing Governor Uduaghan says he endorsed the Supreme Court position that there should be an end to litigation. ” There is time for politics and there is time for election petitions, but it seems there are those determined to use court cases no matter how frivilous to distract and divide Deltans, but God has been with us because he ordained this government,” he said.
Governor Uduaghan however called on Chief Great Ogboru, his challenger in the suit at the apex court and his supporters to join hands with the administration to develop the state
“Delta belongs to all of us. The time to fight is over. Now is the time for Chief Ogboru and his followers to join hands with my administration to develop the state”, he appealed.
