Former Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State has revealed why he came back to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He said; “I left the PDP at the time I left because when I left office after some years I could not breathe. You know like they say literally I could not breathe and I needed to be able to breathe so I left and was able to breathe.”
“Some of the issues I had when I left office while in APC some of them were dealt with. I was approached by my colleagues in PDP, held several meetings and some agreements were reached. I would say the knee that was on my neck that made me not be able to breathe was relaxed that’s why I came back.”
“People have different reasons for moving from one party to the other. Very different reasons and it happens all over the world. Donald Trump, the President today, didn’t start from the Republican party.”
“I am a firm believer in encouraging younger people. I’m a firm believer in that. I have been a Commissioner, I have been SSG and have been Governor. I’m getting involved in mentorship. I believe strongly in the issue of mentorship.”
“Right now, it is informal mentorship I’m doing. I hope I can make it formal and to be able to mentor younger people. We have, I want to repeat, we have challenges in the political terrain in terms of people accepting certain realities and certain truths.”
“You may want to mentor younger ones. Are they ready to be mentored? I see many younger ones who just believe that they are experts because they have one social media page whether on Instagram or Facebook and all that, where they write every junk.”
“So, they just believe they are experts because they are able to put a lot of rumours and hate speeches on Facebook so they are not even ready to take advice”.
