I am an ambitious and committed Deltan and Nigerian and would not shirk any responsibility given to me by the Government of Delta State, the Federal Government of Nigeria and the good people of Delta State and Nigeria now or in the future, as far as God gives me the power and grace to continue contributing my quota to the development of Delta State and Nigeria”

To that extent, I humbly appeal to all those behind the Facebook pages of any sort, be they individual pages, public pages, group pages or any other, including people opening new websites for this purpose or organizing any public movement that they please pull down these pages, close these websites and stop the public declarations of support immediately”

It is open to anyone who thinks me worthy of his/her friendship. The honour will always be mine to accept any friend’s request, as far as they are from Deltans, Nigerians and persons who genuinely want the best for our State, country and humanity.
In a stylish way to indicate his declaration which will happen anytime soon, he stated that “Finally, I want to make clear that when and if the time is right, I will officially make a statement about my political future, which would always be tied to the good wishes and aspirations of all Deltans and Nigerians.
When and if that time comes, I, Charles Chukuemeke Emetulu will set up machineries that will involve every Deltan and Nigerian of goodwill in pursuit of such a common dream.
Yes, you can be sure that every forward- looking Deltan and Nigerian will have the opportunity to be part of such a campaign for a better life and towards better public service for our people”

WE DON’T LOSE SLEEP OVER APC – ABIA PDP

Nnaji Obed


The Abia State chapter of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) says the party does not lose sleep over the opposition All Progressive Congress ( APC).

PDP Publicity Secretary Abia State, Chief Uchechi Ogbuka , who stated this in a press release said APC “as far as Abia State is concerned is dead on arrival and non- existent”.

 He was reacting to a recent media comment credited to the National Vice Chairman (South East) of APC, Dr. Nyerere Anyim where he allegedly criticized the PDP- led government in the state over the state of infrastructure in Aba.

PDP said that the current administration in the state led by Governor Theodore Orji had surpassed all previous administrations in the state put together particularly in the areas of infrastructural development, quality health care delivery, security, education , youth empowerment, human capital development, and a host of other key sectors of the economy.

The party noted that never in the history of the state had the democratic space been so democratized as currently obtained which according to it not only accounted for the array of legacy projects across the state. It said it would not allow allow the opposition the freedom to make derogatory remarks on government and get away with it.

PDP challenged critics of Orji’s administration to be courageous enough to “juxtapose the achievements of the Governor with what his predecessors bequeathed to the state and see who Abia hero should be.”

According to PDP, opposition parties in the state only exist on the pages of newspaper and cannot boast of winning a polling unit in the up coming elections as Abians now know that their future lies with PDP.

 Ogbuka further noted that the likes of Nyerere can never win election in the state, describing him as a “political liability of unimaginable proportion”.

He said ” such men only look for comfort positions in less competitive groups with the tag of a political party where they will be lords just for their pockets”.

Ogbuka recalled that “the same Nyerere quickly decamped from the All Progressive Grand Alliance shortly after the 2011 elections when he was humiliated at the party’s primaries,” describing him as a floating political ballon without any conceivable threat to the fortunes of PDP.
 He restated the party’s earlier submission that the 2015 general election would be a mere walk-over by PDP because of Governor Orji’s unprecedented, monumental and undeniable achievements in less than four years.
