The Governorship aspirant under the platform of Action Democratic Party (ADP), in Delta State, Mr,Frank Ufuoma Esanubi has alleged total failure on the part of the incumbent Governor of the state, Dr,Ifeanyi Okowa, Chief Great Ogboru, and others in politics of the state, boasting that come 2019, he will retire them.
Esanubi who spoke to DAILY POST in Asaba at the Weekend said, ” Delta state has fallen back in the hands of Okowa. In the past three years, Okowa had been deceiving Deltans with invisible infrastructure. Under his leadership, salaries of workers are not being paid as at when due. He does not believe in civil servants as those important to him, rather, he pays promptly his 2,200 political appointees, the money he wastes on the 2,200 appointees will be enough to do good projects in the state. You will agree with me that he believes that his appointees will rig election for him in their respective areas. ”
On Ogboru, Ochei,Others, the ADP Governorship aspirant alleged that their struggle to become the Delta state Governor clearly shows failure.
He said, “I am not Jobless, and I don’t belong to the jobless Nigerian group. I have offered myself to serve my people because I am a true Deltan with the interest of the people at heart,I will retire Okowa, Ogboru, Ochei, others from politics come 2019 because I’ just 40 years old, and I have served in various capacities not as politician, but as a unionist. I will secure means of livelihood for Deltans if given the opportunity.”
On the present economy of Delta state, Esanubi a trained charted accountant alleged, ” The state has fallen back in the hands Okowa who has been carrying out frivolous projects. What has he done in the past three years? I challenge him to come out in truth if he will, and tell Deltans what he had been doing with their money, he is smart, hence his so called Smart agenda. The security standard in the state is poor and porous, people are being killed unsuspectingly, it’s painful and rather unfortunate that looting is the order of the day in Delta, our educational system has fallen, so what has he done? ”
He said that though he will not probe Okowa-led administration if given the opportunity to serve as Governor of the state, but he will ensure he will be exposed as allegedly corrupt politician who did nothing, other than looting, initiating frivolous projects as well as deceiving Deltans, adding that PDP led Delta state had remained ” evil ” caucus of a collective people who have no interest of the people at heart .
On his strategy to wrestle power from the PDP, Esanubi said ” I am still an aspirant, but when given the opportunity, I will initiate strong measures to check the rigging method of PDP.
