The Delta State Chapter of Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) has been told to ensure the return of Senator Ifeanyi Okowa as the governor of the state in 2019 by putting in place a mobilisation mechanism that will consolidate the fortunes of the party at the polls.
Addressing the press during the just organised rally of the Delta Political vanguard, DPV in Kwale, Ndokwa West Local Government Area, the Executive Director, Social Services Development, Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission, DESOPADEC, Hon Christopher Ochor Ochor, who made the call, said that the state is for PDP, but they will not rest until the members of the opposition parties are mobilised to vote in Okowa come 2019.
“With what we can see here, we are ready to consolidate our successes in the state, and I call on members of our great party not to rest until we had mobilised every member of the opposition to our camp to support our candidate for the number one seat in the state, Governor Okowa.”
Ochor who is an aspirant for the Ukwuani Constituency seat in the state House of Assembly, said the DPV is a family that had achieved success in the past, even in the face of daunting odds, and they can still do it again in 2019.
On his aspiration to run for an elective office in the forthcoming election, he said that the people of Ukwuani are looking forward for an accelerated development, and a better representation that will attract government attention to the area, and that his aspiration is a call by the people of Ukwuani for him to run.
“Ukwuani needs better development, a better representation, government attention, and the people have spoken, and I am only answering their call,” he said.
