The Governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, has said he did not send  the name of his likely successor through the Anioma Congress to President Goodluck Jonathan.

In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Research, Sunny Areh,  on Wednesday , Udugahan said there was no truth in the report in the media.

The statement said: “The attention of His Excellency, Dr. Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan, Governor of Delta State has been drawn to a publication in the Vanguard Newspaper of  Wednesday, October 15, 2014 .

“Let it be stated that the Governor did not submit any name through the Anioma Congress as governors do not submit names to the President to be 'appointed' as governors.

“His Excellency has direct access to Mr. President and do not need any intermediary. In the course of ensuring a smooth transition in 2015, His Excellency met with the Asagba of Asaba, Prof. Obi Chike Edozien.

“In the course of discussion, the names of many aspirants of Delta North extraction came up, including those of Mr. Charles Emetulu and Mr. Tony Obuh who were members of his cabinet.

“This statement is for the purpose of setting the records straight and for the benefit of the general public.”
