The widely believed to be anointed Delta Governorship candidate for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Tony Obuh has declared his applicant status and eagerness to get employed as soon as possible. The Agbor, Ika South-born gentleman who just retired from Delta civil service as Permanent Secretary, refused to state whether he was actually interested in governorship position of the state, but made his status and desire as a applicant known in Asaba, Delta State capital.

at a luncheon and interactive session with journalists on Friday in Asaba, Obuh said his retirement has made him jobless and that he was willing to be 'employed in a higher capacity as soon as possible'.

Fielding questions from journalists who were curious to find out the truth on speculations on his candidature and that he was being foisted on the Peoples' Democratic Party (PDP), Obuh kept saying "I am now an applicant eager for employment".

On why he went to see Chief Edwin Clark in his Kiagbodo home, he replied, "I was a civil servant now retired and in the job market. I will be willing to take up any employment. That was why I went to see chief E. K Clark".

Commenting on his posters and messages of his candidature flooding traditional and social media, he said, "I see the posters as messages of goodwill. It’s a measure of people's desire for me. There may be a meeting point for them and I. They are all messages of goodwill and I like them. I state unequivocally, I need further employment. Majority of our people want me to serve in that capacity and I say glory be to God, Amen".

When asked to state categorically whether he would be contesting and why he was in the race, he responded, "I reemphasize, I am looking for employment. By the time I finish with my consultation, I will make a formal declaration and what I have in mind. I will call you people and tell you what I want. For now, give me time to finish my consultation".
