BREAKING: Kukah Brokered Peace Between Uduaghan And Utomi


Reports just filtering in has indicated that the feud between Delta state former governor, Mr. Emmanuel Uduaghan and former presidential candidate, Mr. Pat Utomi has been resolved.

HardReporters learnt that the peace which was brokered by Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah at the Kukah Center in Abuja took place Saturday.

It would be recalled that the feud between both men started when Mr. Udugahan,
during a stakeholders’ meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Asaba, in July had urged Utomi to contest the councillorship seat in his ward and stop spreading falsehood against past leaders of the state in his quest to contest the 2019 governorship election.

Uduaghan was responding to my comments credited to Utomi on the poor state of finances in Delta State.

Reacting, Utomi said that he will prefer that “Uduaghan gives account for the Independent Power Plant, IPP project abandoned in Oghara which has gulped over N20 billion.”

Utomi also explained that he was welcome to any debate from Uduaghan on how to efficiently utilize scarce state resources for the maximum benefit of the people and prevent such colossal waste as was witnessed under Uduaghan’s administration, adding that “Such waste is still being experienced today in the state under the current administration.” Utomi  said, “Governor Okowa was right to raise an alarm about the over N600 billion debt that he claimed to have inherited.

Again firing back for the second time, Uduaghan said: “It is very interesting that Prof Utomi quickly rushed to respond to me, again with tales that were full of falsehood.  I will surely respond with further details and more information on Prof Pat Utomi, who was the last Managing Director of the once vibrant Volkswagen Company of Nigeria and Chairman of the South-South summit held in Asaba to let our people know that Prof Utomi does not have what it takes to govern Delta. “He is the one contesting to be Governor of Delta State and not me. Let people properly evaluate him.”
