20A prominent chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Delta State, Chief (Engr) Hyacinth Enuha has stated that Prof. Pat Utomi is now serious and ready to driving the change that Deltans desire.
Chief (Engr.) Enuha stated this at his country home in Ogwashi-Uku when Utomi visited in continuation of his consultation with party chieftains across the state on his governorship aspiration.
“In 2015, I drafted him into the governorship race; but then he didn’t understand local politics of the state. But from what I can see now, he is playing our local politics, and I am sure he is now serious and ready, because all politics is local,” Enuha said.
He further noted that after listening to Utomi speak, it was clear that he knows the solutions to the myriad of problems hampering development in Delta state.
According to him, “Utomi talks about solutions that are workable and from what I have seen, Utomi is ready to change Delta, he is very serious this time around, therefore he should be supported.”
He encouraged Utomi to reach out to other leaders and party faithfuls, and work hard to win them over ahead of the party primaries. READ ALSO: 14-year-old boy, die from collapsed building in Delta
Earlier, Utomi decried the underdevelopment of Delta state and its poor infrastructure; noting that Delta state has become an object of global ridicule.
According to him, “it will shock you to know that you could take a drive around a town like Onitsha for two hours without coming across any potholes; adding that if states like Edo and Anambra which are less endowed could be this progressive, then Delta state has no reason being an exception.
Amongst many ideas, Utomi also proffered to render assistance to poor mothers in the State by placing them on a monthly allowance if elected as governor, noting that the most critical problem facing Delta state is the lack of leaders with a clear set of ideas of what needs to be done to solve long-standing problems and transform the state.
He therefore charged APC leaders and faithfuls in the state to be mindful of the choices they make at this crucial time, noting that he is fully prepared to lead Delta state to a new era of advancement that will transform the land and restore the pride and dignity of the people of Delta state.
