Orubebe Declares Ambition To Rule Delta State

The immediate past minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godsday Orubebe, has declared his intention to contest for Delta State governorship in the 2015 general elections.

Orubebe made the declaration in Asaba on Saturday during a civic reception in his honour by Delta People’s Forum, DPF.
The former minister said that he resigned as minister in order to return to his home state to serve the people better.

He said he had decided to heed the call by DPF to return to Delta and work for the good of the people.
“As I was driving past the streets of Asaba, I saw some posters with different inscriptions, including the one welcoming me as the next governor of the state. I want to let you know that as your humble servant, I will be there for you come 2015,” he said.
Orubebe said that he was in support of Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan’s administration and would work with it to move the state forward.
He paid tribute to President Goodluck Jonathan and late President Umaru Yar’Adua for appointing him at different times as minister.
Orubebe called on Jonathan to run for a second term in office, saying that he had achieved a lot for the country and deserved to run again for presidency in 2015.
“On behalf of DPF, I ask Nigerians to give Jonathan a chance to serve the country for another four years,” he added.
