Former Governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan says Aso Rock is a possible political destination for the Deputy Governor of Delta State, Barr. (Deacon) Kingsley Burutu Otuaro, just as he said he was impressed by his performance on assignments given to him over the years.
Uduaghan voiced what he called his prophecy during a Public Lecture and a Book presentation in honour of Barr. Kingsley Burutu Otuaro at 50 years, at the KFT Event Centre in Warri, weekend, where Otuaro was invested as Fellow of the Society for Peace Studies and Practice (FSPSP).
In his own appreciation speech at the event, Otuaro said it was Uduaghan, then Secretary to Delta State Government that recommended him to Governor James Ibori for appointment as Special Assistant on Community Affairs, before further appointing him as DESOPADEC Commissioner. While giving the glory to God Almighty for his person, Otuaro went on a roll call of personalities that touched his life including his Pastor at Christ Embassy, Evang. Eddy Owase, for his assistance in prayers and Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for supporting his peace adventures.
Uduaghan described the chairman of the ceremony, Prof Sam Oyovbaire, as the ‘Principal’ of the ‘school of governance ropes’ that Otuaro attended, a reference to the Prof Oyovbaire-led Delta State Technical Support Committee where Otuaro was the youngest member.
Hear Uduaghan: “Otuaro performed well in all the assignments that I gave to him. One I’d like to mention was when he chaired the Rehabilitation Committee after the Warri Crisis/military invasions. Here now is my prophecy: You (Kingsley Otuaro) will be transformed from the creeks to Aso Rock Villa”.
