UGHELLI—Delta State ALL Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate in 2015, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor has vowed that the party will not repeat the mistakes that led to its defeat in the state in 2015.
Emerhor spoke in his country home, Evwreni, Delta State when he played host to Professor Patrick Utomi.
Utomi, a 2019 governorship aspirant was in Emerhor’s residence as part of his consultations ahead of the forthcoming governorship primaries during which he lamented the poverty situation in the state.
Ruling himself out of the 2019 contest, Emerhor said:
“As an individual, I have decided along with other committed APC leaders who really want change in Delta State that we will not do things the same way again this time because the opposition in Delta has not had this type of opportunity that is available to us today.
“You will recall that in 2015, I ran for the governorship of Delta State, and still have the capacity to do that now. But I took a decision not to run because the environment supports a different formula and that formula excludes me, and that is why I am not out there consulting like others. We are not going to contest the governorship election as an individual (contest), and I am ready to be in the middle to get us to Government House, Asaba.”
