The Peoples Democratic Party in Delta State has slammed the Chairman of Labour Party South-South, Chief Tony Ezeagwu, for his comment made against the Governor of the state, Sheriff Oborevwori, on the ocassion of his 100 days in office.
Ezeagwu had criticized the governor for not having any tangible achievement to show for being in charge of the state for 100 days.
Reacting, the PDP Publicity Secretary, Dr. Ifeanyi Osuoza, in a statement issued on Thursday according to The PUNCH, described the criticism as a figment of his imagination.
He said the PDP was proud of the governor’s achievement, while Deltans are happy with his administration.
He said, “His (Ezeagwu’s) views are no doubt derived from the hearsay of his acolytes, and obviously formed in the figment of his imagination. He had been away from the state, therefore, nobody should take him seriously or lose sleep over his twisted logic.
“Chief Ezeagwu’s rant should be confined to the garbage bin of warped fantasy, where it rightly belongs and treated as the ranting of an inconsequential opposition critic, despite his high-sounding status.
“The media space is already awash with stories and articles, detailing the doings of the governor since he assumed office on May 29, 2023, and so, we do not need to rehash what is already in the public domain.
“As a political party, we are proud that as it is a normal practice with the policy of the PDP, government is a continuum and so, in coming administrations must not become remiss in completing projects inherited from previous administrations.
“Such projects, numbering about 400, are at various stages of advanced work and completion.
“The governor’s humanitarian effort, which has culminated in the release of a substantial amount of money to pay outstanding pensions in the local governments, speaks glowingly about his commitment to ensure that Deltans of all ilk are happy. He has similarly released substantial amounts for payment of promotion arrears to benefiting civil servants in the state.”
