PORT HARCOURT – Dame Dr. Esther Uduehi's campaign for the governorship of Delta State in 2015 received additional momentum as she was cleared by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) screening committee to contest the party's gubernatorial primaries, and subsequently issued her Certificate of Clearance. With the clearance, the PDP South-South zonal screening committee, led by Ambassador Obed Wadzani, gave Dr. Uduehi the green light to contest the Delta State governorship primaries in the first week of December.

The foremost aspirant for the number one position in the State repeated that she will govern for the common good of all Deltans and every Deltan will feel the positive impact of her administration. Addressing journalists, she stated, “I will not disappoint any of my fellow Deltans. I also urge our party delegates to vote for me in our upcoming primaries."

She further urged her co-aspirants to campaign on the issues and avoid any negative campaign or attack on an individual aspirant. “PDP is one big family and we should work together to field the best candidate and not give the opposition any room in Delta State. I am the best candidate for the job and have been a loyal party member since its inception. A vote for me is a vote for a stronger PDP and better Delta,” she added.

The former Presidential Adviser, retired Permanent Secretary and former Chairman of the Governing Board of the National Commission for Mass Literacy, Adult and Non Formal Education promised to use her wealth of techno-political experience to benefit Deltans as governor in 2015. She reiterated that her mission “is to further rebuild and restructure Delta State, improve on what has been started and heal any deficiency, while strengthening ethnic relationships.”

“As I have been saying continuously, if I am elected Governor of Delta State, I will govern for the Common Good. My Government will be people based, all-inclusive, transparent, open, accountable and reliable and will be focused on improving the standard of living of the masses,” She added.

While displaying her Certificate of Clearance for all to see, she thanked Almighty God for the privilege to compete in the PDP governorship primaries and also her numerous supporters across all twenty-five (25) Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the state, that have dubbed her “The Esther of our Time.”
