The battle for 2019 political race may still be far in the eyes of many people, but to Medical Doctor turned politician, Emmanuel Ewetan Uduaghan, who ruled Delta for eight years; the end of an election year is the beginning of a new one.
We can report authoritatively that barring any change of plan, he will be unseating Mr James Manager who currently represents Delta South in the Senate. According a very reliable source who is close to the former governor, the plan to remove Manager, who is viewed as a non performer has begun, with the moves of many of his loyalists defecting to the All Progressive Congress (APC) to prepare the ground for his victory.
Another close source revealed that the party to contest the election under is yet to be decide on, but is certain that it will be under the banner of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), but with great support from his ‘boys’, like Ayiri Emami, Tony Nwaka, Paulinus Akpeki, Ijeoma Ebifa and hosts of others who currently calls the shot in Delta APC, thus ruling out a possible defection from the PDP.
Secret Reporters gathered on good authority that Uduaghan has began oiling his political arsenal towards the contest that will decide the fate and is making political friends across the Isoko axis to undermine Manager’s influence who is from the area.
Calls put across to the former number one citizen in his state was placed on ‘busy’, as at the time of going to press.
