Again, Delta Governor Assures Of Peaceful Polls


Uduaghan who gave the assurance when he visited the head of Koko Community, Warri North Local Government Area, Chief Victor Nana on Saturday explained that as part of his administration's peace and security agenda, he has put mechanisms aimed at forestalling violence and crisis during the polls.

According to him, aspirants of the various political parties and the communities have been adequately sensitized and enlightened to resolve all issues amicably to guarantee peace, security and safety on election days.

Dr. Uduaghan reiterated his appeal to aspirants to continue to go about their campaigns in a peaceful manner and concentrate on the programmes they have for the people of the state rather than embarking on blackmail and acts that could heat up the polity.

He promised to address the issues of inadequate personnel at the Iwere College and the Koko General Hospital said to be confronting the two establishments, assuring that he would ensure that projects initiated by his administration were given due attention.

Chief Victor Nana expressed gratitude to the governor for the prevailing peace and security in the state and in Warri North but pleaded with him to impress it on political office seekers to eschew violence and acts that could jeopardize the peace in his locality.

Chief Nana had called the governor's attention to the challenge of inadequate personnel at the Iwere College and the Koko General Hospital.

Meanwhile, Governor Uduaghan has advised members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Warri North Local Government not to allow themselves to be used to create violence in the run up to the October 25 council polls.

Governor Uduaghan who was addressing members of the party in Koko, reminded them that peace and security was the cornerstone of his administration, warning that he would not fold his hands and allow anyone disrupt the existing peace in the state.

He told the gathering that he has not anointed any aspirant in the area in the forthcoming elections and advised against causing violence under the guise of working for his preferred candidates but urged them to vote for the PDP Chairmanship candidate, Mr. Francis Maku-Eyituoyor.
