In a bid to document for posterity, the achievements of the outgoing Governor of Delta State, His Excellency, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan (CON) in his eight years in office, Golden Periwinkle Entertainment, is set to premiere the docu-movie titled The Uduaghan Chronicles: The Movie – Diary of a Public Servant.
The work, an independent effort, is an all-new docu-drama chronicling the life and times of Uduaghan, “based on his eight years of selfless service to Delta State,” Jude Banye, co-producer of the film said in a press statement last week. The film he said would be premiered in Asaba the Delta State capital later this month with filmmakers and members of the cast in attendance for the Red Carpet and media interviews as well as post screening panel discussions.
“Deltans and Nigerians need to know the level of achievements of Dr. Uduaghan in his eight years against all odds. With all the litigations he faced in the first stanza of his eight year tenure, it was a miracle that this man could rise up and turn around Delta State after all the storm. So, it is pertinent that these facts be documented in a movie format for posterity to see that there was once a Governor of our dear state that achieved so much in spite of many hurdles placed on his way,” Banye said.
The docu-movie he said will take Deltans round “the giant strides developments Uduaghan caused to happen across Delta. Some scenes will be re-enactment while others will feature the Governor, especially when initiating and commissioning a project in the state.”
Igho Ugbegu, one of the co-producers reiterated what Banye said adding that “eight years of anyone’s life, devoted to the service of a state in its formative years, is good enough reason to chronicle in the annals of the state. Delta State is only 24 years old, and here is a man who has given eight years of his life to a 24 year old project; he sure has an unmistakable position in history books.
