Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State claims he relinquished his senatorial ambition because he did not want to leave office in a crisis situation – especially with intelligence information that guns would boom in Warri after his victory.
Speaking with journalists in Warri, the governor explained thus:
“There was heavy build-up most especially Delta South Senatorial elections and I asked myself, what would I be doing in the Senate if the process leading to that election would lead to another crisis in Warri.?”
“I am sure you will have more to report as journalists, but you will also not feel comfortable if there is no peace in the city. We are enjoying some freedom and peace now. There is no curfew. I have the strong belief that if I had gone for the PDP senate primary, by now there would have been curfew in Warri,”
“I do not want to leave office in a crisis situation. That is the reason I had to drop my senatorial ambition. I believe we do not have to go to the extent we go sometimes to seek power. We do not have to go to the extent of causing war or chaos,” he said.
Err, please do you understand what he’s saying?
