The immediate past Delta State Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Edwin Uzor, has described the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship aspirant, Prof Pat Utomi as “an accidental manager who could not even manage a corporation but ran it aground.”
Uzor, in a press release, while reacting to a statement credited to Utomi where he said that Deltans are going through “misery” in the PDP-led government said Utomi has joined political merchants in Lagos and Abuja who only remember that they are from Delta, during election time.
He noted that it’s; “unfortunate that Utomi who is supposedly knowledgeable would make reckless statements that have no bearing with facts,” adding that “he is not surprised at Utomi’s verbal gaffe because this is a man who is not in touch with the reality on ground in Delta State and yet wants to govern it.”
While berating Utomi for his swiping remarks on the PDP-led government, noted that after he has “failed in attempts to be appointed a minister in the rudderless and abysmally incompetent APC-led Federal Government, Prof Utomi now thinks it is Deltans who should compensate him for the ignoble role he played in foisting President Muhammadu Buhari on Nigerians.
“Deltans know better than to listen to or put their fate in the hands of an accidental manager who could not even manage a corporation but ran it aground.
He added that; “Prof Utomi has the constitutional right to aspire to any office in the land. But he should first learn the rudiments of political engagement and humbly subject himself to some political education before opening his mouth.
“In the meantime, I will advise him to concentrate his efforts to right the wrong of helping to promote an APC-led Federal Government that has inflicted the worst form of suffering on Nigerians. Today, Nigeria is gradually becoming a country known for suicide deaths as a result of the horrible economic policies of the APC-led Federal Government, which have wreaked incalculable damage to the family economy,” Uzor stated.
