The upcoming 2019 general elections is becoming more interesting, especially in Delta state, as Mr Frank Esanubi, Deputy National President of Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) has declared his ambition to contest for the Governorship seat in the state.
Esanubi who is now the Governorship aspirant under the platform of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) declared that his motivation to contest for the Governorship seat was to put things in order in the state, for the benefit of the people, as he condemned the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

According him; “The same party has been in power for 18 years now, we getting worst every day. You hear people say the first Governor we had in 1999 is better, that despite the cases leveled against him, he is better, he achieved more that others that have not been taken to court. It gives you a picture of our state. When you bring those that are not the best you get what you see.
My drive to contest the election is to see that we do things better. When you say you want to contest for a public office you people l say you want to amass wealth, I do not blame them because that is what we see today. The drive for me coming out for this position is because I don’t want to give up on this country. I have faced the battle to say I should relocate my family out of the country but I dropped the idea because we need to repair our own country, if nobody will do it for us. . This is why I have to offer myself for the governorship of the state.
I am contesting on the platform of Action Democratic Party, a new party registered in June 2017. The beauty of the party is that it respects internal democracy, we should expound the democratic space for the youths and women of the country.”
It was also gathered that the ADP Governorship candidate with a youth group from Delta State, had earlier visited Ex Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo on politics ground, at the Presidential Library, Abeokuta.
