Uduaghan denies rift with Okowa

03 September 2015, 06:57

Lagos - The immediate past governor of Delta State, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, has reacted strongly to reports suggesting he was involved in a so-called running battle with successor, Ifeanyi Okowa.

Uduaghan, speaking through his former Chief Press Secretary, Sunny Ogefere, lashed at media for such suggestions.

“We recognise the fact that these are desperate times for political jobbers who will stop at nothing to create storms where none exist in order to achieve their inordinate.

Ogefere said Uduaghan was not in any “running battle” with his successor.

"Of course, some people may have tried to create one using hirelings as the author of the story under reference, but as is always the case, any venture founded on satanic motives will collapse,” Ogefere said.

He appealed to media to be cautious when reporting on such issues.

“I implore my professional colleagues to exercise caution and be mindful of the fact that as journalists we owe readers the responsibility to uphold our honour.”
