A political pressure group under the auspices of Delta Rescue Mission (DRM) in Delta State has congratulated Nigerians, the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) and the all progressive democrats on the registration of the newly formed All Progressive Congress (APC).Speaking during a briefing of journalists at Effurun in Uvwie Local Government Area of the State, the Director General of DRM, Mr. Ahweyevu Mukoro, said the group congratulates the party and all who in one way or the other worked relentlessly for the registration especially the merged political parties and their leaders.
While describing APC as a viable vehicle with which Delta State would be rescued from its current challenge before the next election in 2015, Mukoro questioned the policies and project planning of the Uduaghan led government saying, “There was no time that the State government ever told Deltans that at a time, they would renovate schools along the road or a particular project would be done.
“Fine, the projects are commendable but what are policies particularly as regards cost of these projects so that people can equate the value of these projects in terms of work done? An example is the Delta Beyond Oil initiative. If we may ask, what is the policy and programme behind this project as to say, at so and so time maybe a particular month, we would say this is the amount the state got from the Delta Beyond Oil initiative?
“So, you would realise that the people can’t actually hold the government accountable, but under an APC government, the reverse would be the case. We in DRM would try as much as possible to midwife the leadership of the APC, so that those in leadership position of the party would not be lacking in knowledge, political theory, development and practice which has been the hallmark of the APC governors,” he stated.
