Ogboli seeks to succeed Uduaghan
By Bayo Ogunmupe
A business mogul and human rights activist, Charles Ogboli has declared his aspiration to succeed Emmanuel Uduaghan as the next governor of Delta State.
Ogboli, who is also the chairman of Ecovat Petroleum, made this declaration at Asaba recently.
When asked why he had chosen the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as his political platform the legal luminary said, he chose the PDP because during his tour of the states he discovered the state PDP is the best managed in Nigeria. Ogboli said that that realization gave him the encouragement to choose the ruling centre-right PDP.
According to the Aniocha born businessman, his intention to vie for governorship seat was born out of his passion to see a prosperous Delta State among the oil producing states of the federation.
The gubernatorial aspirant then called on the people to shun money politics in order to elect a credible governor who will sustain the progress Uduaghan has made in Delta State.
“Electing a credible person who will sustain the progress of the state is the reason I am presenting myself for the great task”, he said.
