Delta State Deputy Governor, Sir Monday Onyeme, has urged members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to remain united and committed to the ideals of the party.
Sir Onyeme, made the call on Wednesday in Asaba when he received members of Ndokwa Core Group, a political pressure group within the PDP.

“That elections are over does not mean that we should rest on our oars; we should be more united and committed to our party.
“As a victorious people, we should be proud to be members of the PDP and support the government that we voted for, the administration of Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori to succeed,” Sir Onyeme said.
On the issue of political appointments, he noted that the governor was meticulous in the appointments that he is making, and appealed to Deltans to be patient and pray that the governor will continue to get capable hands to work with him for the good of all Deltans.
He also thanked members of the Ndokwa Core Group for being a formidable political body, disclosing that, “The idea behind the Ndokwa Core Group is to bring the elected and appointed political office holders under one umbrella, but with time, people with like minds joined us.
