The Oracle in Politics and disclose this yesterday when he visited his brother and a close friend Chief Adizue Eluaka at his Asaba residence, as he also addressed a crowd of supporters that gathered at Eluaka’s compound to receive and congratulate him on his recent court victory.
According Senator Nwaoboshi, in his words: “I am a PDP Senator but I have to tell you the truth, Urhobo and Itsekiri Governors performed credibly better than our own Anioma Governor. ”
“What can you say that our Anioma Governor has done for Asaba people and environs to show that he loves Asaba more than the Delta Central people? Don’t allow selfish people to bring division between us and Delta Central people.”
“I challenge anyone to a debate that Uduaghan loves Asaba more than our Anioma Governor anytime and anywhere. His legacy in Asaba speaks volumes. It’s the turn of Delta Central to produce the next Governor of Delta State,” he added.
The PDP Senator carpeted the Okowa administration for under-developing Delta and dared anyone to challenge him on any legacy project Okowa has built since becoming Governor.
In Nwaoboshi’s words, “… people would say Anioma, Anioma,… the only flyover in this Asaba and Warri was built by Uduaghan, the Airport was built by Uduaghan, the present Government House was built by Uduaghan, the Event centre was built by Uduaghan, the Stadium was built by Uduaghan, … tell me what you have done to show that Asaba is important to you!… tell me one single capital project that you will say you have done”.
Continuing, Nwaoboshi said “I am a PDP but you have to be part of a system to tell the system what is wrong”. “I am a PDP man but I must say the truth. Wike has built more that eight flyovers in Rivers State, what has he (Okowa) done in Delta State and how flyovers has he built in the state capital?”
On Gov. Okowa’s statement that Deltans should not vote a Governor “who will not see Asaba as his home”, Nwaoboshi described the Governor as being tricky and clannish, cautioning him (Okowa) to stop sponsoring division and inciting the people against their neighbors.
Nwaoboshi said those who have committed themselves more to the development of Asaba are not from the Anioma nation, whereas Okowa as an Anioma son has nothing to prove that he truly loves the Anioma people.
Nwaoboshi said Okowa “keeps saying Anioma! Anioma!! What has he done for the Anioma people?”
He reiterated (jokingly in his native language) that having traveled in a vehicle for some time now, Deltans should know whether the vehicle can take them to their desired destination or not.
Meanwhile, the Oracle, as he (Nwaoboshi) is fondly called, accused Gov. Okowa of playing vindictive politics rather than concentrate on governance. He said the Okowa administration was the face and hand behind what he described as false and fictitious petitions against him, adding that the administration went as far as trying to bribe the judiciary to nail him. According to Nwaoboshi, “some people think that they are clever but they are just clever by half”., but i will leave everything to God almighty.
