After waiting for months to see Odudu Ukpanah the only son of late Albert Odudu freed from prison for committing no crime, the Coalition for Human Rights Defenders (CHORD) led by the trio of Inibehe Effiong, John Eneh and Fejiro Oliver took to the street on January 7th 2015 to demand for his immediate and unconditional release.
The event was covered by various media houses including TVC and Channels TV was well attended by well meaning Akwa Ibomites with others coming in from other parts of the country including Edima Bassey who was among those from diaspora
Press men like Uyime Ekwere, an Editor with Global Concord Newspaper and House of Assembly Aspirant under All Progressive Congress (APC) were on hand to lead his colleagues for the historic moment.
Speaking with news men, Inibehe stated that the Governor, Godswill Akpabio cannot cry more than the bereaved and therefore should order the case closed, since the family are not interested. In the same vein, the sisters of Odudu, Barr. Uduak Ukpana and Ms Ofonime Uduak declared their brother innocent.
If anyone is still wondering why Delta State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan actually withdrew from the Delta South Senatorial race; the reason is not far fetched.
According to a source, the Governor got wind from the delegates that they will not vote for him, if he goes ahead to challenge Senator James Manager in the election. As part of a way to get soft landing, we gathered that he was told by his partner in crime, Nduka Obaigbena to withdraw from the race to pave way for his toy candidate, Sir Anthony Obuh to emerge as governor.
After agreeing to step down, we were reliably informed that he approached James Manager and begged him to speak with his loyal delegates to vote for Obuh. Manager told him that he has no control over his delegates and that he can go and speak to them,
Bad road in front of Sam Obi House
As the race to the Delta 2015 Governorship heightens, Secrets Reporters lens has caught one of the candidates lacking in what he asks for.
The aspirant who has promised massive road construction if elected our lens found out cannot even construct a failed portion of road directly in front of his sprawling mansion located at GRA, Asaba. It is however a public knowledge who whispers in hush tones on how Gov Emmanuel Uduaghan could not construct roads in the capital city, despite all the billions he collects monthly. All the major roads in Asaba are in bad shape.
The aspirant is no other person but Rt. Hon. Sam Obi, who incidentally was the State acting governor for three months, when despotic Governor Uduaghan was sacked for stealing Deltans mandate. An aspirant with bad roads to his house is not even fit to be a councilor, residents in the area said to Secrets Reporters.
