“By this resounding victory, the PDP has conclusively established beyond doubt that Delta State is PDP and PDP is Delta.
“Given the hard work put in by the Party and its candidates during the electioneering campaigns and the welcome support given by the electorates at the various campaign grounds across the State, it was quite obvious that the coast was very clear for the victory of PDP.
“In particular, the Party notes with satisfaction, the painstaking effort of the Delta State Independent Electoral Commission (DSIEC), in exhibiting uncommon competence and adroit handling of the entire “gamut of the electoral process that has culminated in the peaceful conduct of the elections.
“Even, the security agencies were not left behind as they did their bright best in ensuring that security and orderliness prevailed before and during the elections. We commend their patriotic efforts that contributed immensely to the success of the electoral process.
“Of course, we also commend our amiable Governor, His Excellency, Senator, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa for displaying exceptional leadership in providing a level playing field in the build-up to the elections, and in particular, for confirming once again that he is indeed a democrat.
“To our party faithful, leaders, and PDP teeming supporters, we acknowledge your support, worth, co-operation, and sacrifice without which the success story of the Party at the Local Government elections would have been a mirage.
“To all of those who participated in and supervised the elections, including our worthy opponents in the other political parties, we say congratulations on the peaceful council polls.
“Together, we shall build a stronger Delta and deliver more democratic dividends and prosperity to all Deltans.”
