Emer­hor: Buhari is dis­man­tling ret­ro­gres­sive struc­tures

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Terkula Igidi

The gov­er­nor­ship can­di­date of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) in Delta State 2015 elec­tion, Mr Oloro­gun Otega Emer­hor, has ex­pressed con­fi­dence in the abil­ity of Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari and his party to take Nige­ria from her present so­cioe­co­nomic stag­na­tion to a vi­brant and pros­per­ous na­tion.

Mr Emer­hor, in a con­grat­u­la­tory mes­sage on the oc­ca­sion of the 55th in­de­pen­dence an­niver­sary, said since as­sump­tion of of­fice on May 29 this year, Pres­i­dent Buhari had been dis­man­tling ret­ro­gres­sive so­cioe­co­nomic struc­tures put in place by past ad­min­is­tra­tions so as to open a new page for trans­parency, ac­count­abil­ity and good gov­er­nance across board.

The APC chief­tain at­trib­uted the un­der­de­vel­op­ment of the Nige­rian na­tion to lack of vi­sion­ary and proac­tive lead­er­ship of the past, which opened sev­eral cor­rupt chan­nels through which the God-given com­mon­wealth of the Nige­rian peo­ple was mis­man­aged.

He be­lieved that with Pres­i­dent Buhari in the sad­dle, Nige­ria’s hu­man, fi­nan­cial and ma­te­rial re­sources would be prop­erly man­aged and pru­dently chan­neled to­wards pro­duc­tive ven­tures that would fa­cil­i­tate eco­nomic growth and over­all de­vel­op­ment of our na­tion.

Mr Emer­hor, who is still at the Gov­er­nor­ship Elec­tions Tri­bunal sit­ting at As­aba to chal­lenge the vic­tory of Gover­nor Ifeanyi Okowa of the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP), as­sured Deltans that sooner than later the state would have the op­por­tu­nity to have an APC gov­ern­ment.
