With the 2023 general elections fast approaching, a political pressure group under the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) the John Ewubare Siakpere Support Team for Sheriff Oborevwori 2023 has promised to carry out door-to- door campaign, galvanize support from the grassroots for the victory of Delta State PDP Governorship Candidate, Speaker of the State House of Assembly and National Deputy Chairman of the Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures of Nigeria, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori and all other candidates of the party.
The group made the pledge on Tuesday during the PDP Presidential Campaign at the Stephen Kashi Stadium in Asaba, Oshimilli South Local Government Area of Delta State.
The founder and Director General of the group, Mr John Ewubare Siakpere, United Kingdom based lawyer, stated that PDP is the only reliable, competent and credible political party that can rescue and reset the Nigerian economy destroyed by the APC maladministration.
Siakpere who was represented by the Treasurer of the group Mr Cashman Oveghene noted that the political pressure group is already canvassing for votes to deliver the Atiku/Okowa and Sheriff/Onyeme presidential and governorship tickets and all other candidates to ensure landslide victories at the elections.
He said that former Vice President Atiku Abubakar was endowed with the best experience to rebuild the Nigerian state considering the transformative role he was saddled with in the administration of former President Olusegun Obansajo, adding that with the selection of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as Vice Presidential Candidate, Nigeria would have better future.
