A famous English preacher, Frederick William Robertson once said, “There are three things in the world that deserve no mercy, hypocrisy, fraud, and tyranny”. Assuming Nigeria is a sane environment; the likes of Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan, who retain all qualities that deserve no mercy, with the information at our disposal should not occupy a public post.
Apart from numerous frauds which his regime has allegedly committed, revelations coming to the public domain are that he has succeeded in selling some of the State owned properties to self and cronies. One of those properties sold at a ridiculous price is the cherished Delta House also named Guinea House. We gathered that the properties was sold to immediate past Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) State Chairman, Peter Nwaoboshi, who is vying for the position of Delta South Senatorial District.
According to our sources, the property which was valued for N4.7 billion was ridiculously sold to Nwaoboshi for a paltry sum of N805 Million, while similar properties were sold to the governor using fronts such as Solomon Ogba and Otubu.
The same Nwaoboshi who has been part of the looting class in the State since the return of civilian rule was allegedly given contract by the governor to supply mere dustbins for six local governments in the Anioma region for an eye popping sum of N2.2 Billion.
All these according to insider of the government house are to make way for the governor to get the ticket to represent his people in the Senate and also to impose his loyalist to govern the state so that his many allegations of corrupt will be covered.
Those in the known revealed that apart from her thriving Pentecostal ministry, Great Commission Assembly, situated off Okpa Anam Road, Asaba, Delta state First Lady Deaconess Roli Uduaghan, has erected a massive private school, in Asaba, under the guise of her popular pet programme “I Care Foundation’. Findings also has it that the expansive land that accommodated the school project, initially belonged to Delta State House of Assembly. And the state was planning to build a clinic and a police station at the site before the First Lady allegedly ‘grabbed’ the land .We learnt ,that the full boarding institution, which comprises nursery, primary, secondary and theological schools, is expected to be officially commissioned in few weeks. Aside the fact the family now owns choice properties in scattered around Nigeria and beyond.
Perching birds also disclosed the reason behind Gov. Uduaghan’s positive media reports despite his many vices. It was gathered that the governor usually parts with whooping amount of money to cover his atrocities. One of such cases is the recent largesse to publishers of online news portals, publishers of soft sell magazines and state correspondents who are paid and directed to use positive media press materials despite lack of achievements in the Delta state.
According to the report, some of the selected online mediums were paid Six hundred Thousand Naira (N600, 000) in the name of advert for three months, while the soft sell magazine editors get as much as One Hundred Thousand Naira (N100, 000) monthly amidst other freebies. This sum of money we gathered runs into hundreds of millions. The money we gathered is paid into the account of two Yoruba journalists (names withheld for professional reasons), who in turn pay into the account of some selected loyalists. More revelations unveils that even the hard news media and community journalists who reports from the State are not left out in this largesse as they are also paid monthly. The Sapele correspondent chapel of the Nigerian Union of Journalists whose executive we can authoritatively report is illegal are paid a paltry sum of N5,000 monthly, while the State Council of the union feeds fat from the governor cash for story.
