Delta guber aspirant, Esanubi slams Okowa’s govt, vows to be sworn in May 2019


A governorship aspirant on the platform of the Action Democratic Party, ADP, in Delta state,
Comrade Frank Ufuoma Esanubi on Saturday boasted that he will be sworn-in as the next governor of the state come May 29, 2019.

Esanubi made the assertion during a town hall meeting with party faithful in Sapele, Delta state.

He stated that he is running for governorship to rescue Deltans from the maladministration they have suffered from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the past 16 years and enthrone good governance.

Esanubi said his administration will be returning power to the people and place priority on providing quality education, infrastructural developments, education and link up the riverine communities for investors to come.

He urged people of the state to play their roles in process of ensuring the emergence of good leaders by first obtaining their PVCs and making sure they come out and vote for the Action Democratic Party on the day of elections.

According to him, “We cannot continue to play this money politics. Power is in our hands and we should use it wisely.”

The governorship aspirant stated that it is the highest level of irresponsibility for the Delta state government to allow companies like Eternit to pack out of Sapele town.

He noted that Sapele was the only major town one could find Leventist in the whole of the defunct Bendel State in the 70’s like in Kano, Lagos, Enugu and other parts of the country.

Esanubi stated that Sapele has become a “Shadow” of itself, stressing that “everything that should be in this town has been moved to other places.”

He said, “We have to reverse that trend and in reversing the trend, we have to make sure that we do everything to bring investment into this town.

“It is embarrassing. I have friends here. One at a point in time worked in Eternit. It is irresponsible for a government to sit down and allow a company die under their watch.

“It is the highest level of irresponsibility on the part of any government to continue to have a Government in Delta State and allow Eternit go down the drain is an embarrassment to the people of Delta State”.

The governorship hopeful promised to engage the private sector in reviving some industries in Sapele.
