Nigerian comedian I Go Dye has slammed former state governor Emmanuel Uduaghan which he accused him of doing nothing while in office and should not be seeking a senatorial post in 2019.
Uduaghan who was governor of the Niger Delta State from 2007 to 2015, recently defected to the All Progressives Congress from the Peoples Democratic Party.
He is nursing a senatorial ambition for his Delta South district.
However, in a post on Instagram, the Delta-born I Go Dye slammed Uduaghan for not leaving any legacy while he was in office.
According to him, “Ex -Governor Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan should be advocating for a younger candidate ,instead of the personal ambition to run for the senatorial position in Delta State.
“After enjoying the executive position for (8) eight years, with a revenue allocation of over Five trillion nine hundred and seventy one billion two hundred million within that period, nothing can be ascribed to him,in terms of infrastructural and human capital development. This is enough reason he shouldn’t seek any other elective position in Delta State.
“Honestly speaking, what does he want to achieve for Delta State, that he failed to do, when he had all the resources in his control of 25 Local government as the Executive Governor,compared to becoming a senator with lean resources to undergo mere constituency projects worth two hundred million? (200,000,000)
“Interestingly, if he had transformed Delta State to the least part of Lagos in terms of social and structural development or built a modern city even in his local government council of origin or within our coastal areas, there wouldn’t have been any reason for him to buy a property in Banana Island.”
He added that “Delta State is blessed with wonderful landscapes that can offer such platforms, like the glorified Banana Island,but nothing has been developed in these regards.
“The template of ‘Delta Beyond Oil’ that he promoted during his tenure only existed in the media, no foundation was built by him to verify this claim.
“I have no personal interest but I am speaking the minds of Deltans,whose pensions were not paid even during his tenure, when he was Governor. The list is endless,the general consensus is very open.
“We all have a role to play in rebuilding Nigeria and I must play my part, regardless of who is concerned. This is our fatherland and we cannot give emptiness to our children.
“In my own field of entertainment,he built an event center in Asaba, very expensive for the ordinary citizens to rent, because of the high cost.
“A careful study of the Dome event center in Asaba which he built, shows one of the biggest waste of modern times,where the facility is ran by a rented generator.”
