Delta 2015: Emerhor Says No To Postponement Of Elections
AS the February 2015 general elections heats up, the Delta State All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial candidate, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor, has given Deltans reasons to kick out the ruling PDP.
According to him, the ruling party has failed the people in the past 16 years, and that all aspects of the economy have been destroyed by the PDP
At a rally, Emerhor said: “For 16 years, the PDP-led government in Delta State have caused us sufferings. There is no food on our tables. There are no jobs for our children. They have been telling us stories all these years. All the promises they have been making are in the pipelines. Our youths decided to cut the pipelines, but they did not see any promises.”
He said the PDP are making plans to postpone the elections because they have found out that they will lose if the election holds in February. He stressed that the PDP cannot stop or postpone the election.
“God has opened the Red Sea and they are about to drown. So, they are now asking that the elections should be postponed. But we will not accept their ill-motivated agenda because we are fully prepared for this election. We have only 20 days for a new government under General Buhari to take over. Now, they are afraid of the elections. But we must conduct the election,” Emerhor said.
He also faulted the amnesty programme of the federal government, saying it only favoured the Ijaw people in the Niger Delta, pointing out that President Jonathan’s administration has not brought any development to the South-South geopolitical zone.
Emerhor noted that the PDP failed the nation when it refused to provide jobs for the youths, and attributed the high rate of insecurity to the rate of unemployment in the country.
