Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State on Thursday submitted his Expression of Interest and Nomination forms for the Delta South Senatorial district at the Peoples Democratic Party State Headquarters, Asaba.
The governor, who obtained the form on October 17 courtesy of some of his political associates at the national secretariat of the PDP in Abuja, expressed appreciation to all PDP faithful and Deltans for their love and support.
He said, “History is in the making and I have to heed the calls of my people, who have urged me to go to the Senate after my tenure as Governor of Delta State. I will not disappoint them. I will, by the grace of God, give my senatorial zone quality representation.
“I also want to appreciate President Goodluck Jonathan and assure him that I will put all my national and international reach at his disposal”.
Meanwhile, a political group in the senatorial district, the G3, has thrown its weight behind the governor’s senatorial ambition.
Secretary of the group, Solomon Funkekeme, said Uduaghan was the best candidate the district could present as its representative in the National Assembly, adding that “his wealth of experience and leadership qualities stand him out”.
