PDP don’t protect its members – Uduaghan

Uduaghan’s claim was contained in an interview he granted Vanguard saying, “The PDP has never protected its own. The PDP can use you and whatever happens to you after, nobody cares.”

The ex-governor discountenanced suggestion that his defection to the ruling party was to bring about the suspension of his investigation for alleged fraud while in office by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

He told the paper: “I am one of the most investigated former governors. I have gone to the EFCC in Lagos, Port Harcourt, Enugu, Benin and Abuja, so what other investigations are you talking about? In the last three years, the EFCC has come to Delta State, took the SSG’s office for three days, arrested people, brought Permanent Secretaries and others to Asaba and this has never happened in any state. If you go to the EFCC, they would tell you that the highest number of petitions is from Delta State.

“There is virtually nothing that I did in Delta State that has not been investigated, sometimes twice because sometimes two persons write same petition. So what other investigation are you talking about?”
