Delta State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan has advised political

office seekers to pursue their ambitions peacefully and avoid

desperation and acts capable of triggering crisis and violence.

 

Governor Uduaghan receiving the Delta State Chairman of the Christian

Association of Nigeria (CAN) Rev. Gideon Oyibo and his executive on a

courtesy visit on Wednesday, stated that it was important that

aspirants for political offices have in mind that their desire was to

serve the people and should not take their aspirations as do-or-die

affair as power belongs to God.

 

According to him, “aspirants should not see their ambition as a do or

die affair, there is too much desperation among the political class

today, and most of them don’t care what happens to their political

opponents or the people around them as long as they achieve their

ambition.

 

“It has been a challenging period for me, I have been accused of so

many things, I have been a victim of internet terrorism, what bothers

me most is when people resort to violence to achieve their ambition.

 

“I want to appeal to  political aspirants to ensure that there is no

violence”, Dr Uduaghan said, stressing “somebody must not die for you

to get to any position, you must not destroy lives, cars or properties

because of political position, remember it is only God that gives

position and what he has ordain will surely come to pass.”

 

While commending the members of CAN for their credible performance

during the last Local Government Elections, Governor Uduaghan noted

that they added credibility to the electoral process and urged them

play similar roles in future elections.

 

He also asked them to continue to pray for the nation to overcome the

Boko Haram scourge, declaring that President Good luck Jonathan was

handling the insurgency with the seriousness it deserved.

 

Rev. Oyibo, had on his part decried the attitude of political

aspirants who were so desperate for positions and use violence as a

means to achieve their aims, urging them to follow the stipulated

rules and guidelines.

 

Meanwhile, an ultra-modern executive (exco) chambers inside the New

Government House , built and furnished by the Uduaghan administration,

was on Wednesday dedicated.

 

Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), South-South ,

Bishop God-Do-Well Avwomakpa led a team of men of God including Rev.

Gideon Oyibo to perform the dedication ceremony.
