In a move to counter the effect of Secrets Reporters expose of Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan dumping Sir Anthony Obuh and endorsing Charles Emetulu, the Delta State Commissioner for Energy, the perfect gentleman has come out to debunk such claim.
In a release obtained by Secrets Reporters, Emetulu noted that “I am always humbled by the efforts of many progressive Deltans and Nigerians who have continued to support me in my job as the Commissioner for Energy, Delta State of Nigeria. I am fully focused on this job, because that is what I have signed for and what the good people of Delta State expect from me.
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”
Acknowledging the fact that he is aware that many people have floated organizations in his name, and calling on him to contest, he stated that “as much as I recognize that supporters and well wishers would love to campaign for me to be the next Executive Governor of Delta State, I wish to state strongly that I have not made any such declaration and have not given any person, group of persons or organization the authority to speak for me or declare interest on my behalf for the post or any other post. 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”
Further, he expressed appreciation to those who have used the social media for a, Facebook to project him. According to him, “I do so, because I know you are part of this only because you believe in me. I hope to continue to count on your support for myself and for the Delta State Government in the future. Indeed, I do have a Facebook page under the name of “Charles Emetulu”. 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”
Political sources who are in the know revealed to this medium that the denial was put up to save face and give ground to Obuh, who is expected to decamp for him in the wee hours to election.
