Former Delta Gov. Uduaghan, Reveals Reason For Visit To The President



Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, the former governor of Delta State has revealed that his visit to President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday was to consult with the president on the issue that affects the All Progressive Congress in Delta state.

Naija News recalls that Uduaghan and two others, in separate meetings, met with the president after the Friday’s Jumat Prayer at the Aso Rock Villa in Abuja

The senatorial candidate of the APC, who said he acknowledged the effort of the federal government on the development of his home state, thanked the president for his effort in the state.

“There have been efforts by the APC-led government in engaging the people of the Niger Delta, the leaders, youths and various stakeholders on the necessity for peace in the Niger Delta and that engagement process has really paid off.

“Also in the area of infrastructure, particularly in Delta State, we have the Escravos bar which is an entry to the Warri river that has already been dredged by the APC-led Federal Government.

“We have the Minister of transport who came with a train for the very first time to Aladja. The Itakpe-Aladja railway line is being completed and has been tested.

“The Maritime University has been opened; roads have been constructed, especially by NDDC, so there is appreciable performance by the APC- led Federal Government as far as Delta State is concerned.

“So, I just came to appreciate him in that regard and to let him know as APC members we shall campaign aggressively for APC to win all elections in Delta State,’’ he said.

The governor said he appealed to the president on the reopening of the Osubi Airport and providing a solution to the issues that concerns it closure.

He said that the Airport, which was close to Warri, had been closed for more than one month because of crisis between the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) and a private firm.
