The 2015 gubernatorial election in Delta State is set to produce a lot of drama, especially if fillers emerging from the media is anything to go by. Information has it that human rights activist, Mr Festus Keyamo, has indicated his interest to contest for the governorship of the state.
The human rights activist made this known recently in Effurun-Warri, Delta State, at the maiden edition of Delta Forces United (DFU), a rallying point being put in place to mobilise and galvanise progressives in the state.
Keyamo was reported to have promised to take ‘Deltans’ out of what he termed the present state of underdevelopment. He also condemned what he regarded as “politics of cronyism, ethnicity, prebendalism and underdevelopment in the state,” announcing that it was time for ‘Deltans’ to be liberated from the dynasty of thieves that has festered in the state over the years.
However, in the meantime, it is yet to be known the platform of the political party on which Keyamo would run for the election, but he has ruled out the possibility of joining the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), describing the party as “an entrencher of godfatherism to the detriment of the masses.”
