Delta State Governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa has charged Nigerians to support and vote the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to take over governance in the country in 2023 following the abysmal performance of the APC-led government.
He explained that the party would do everything possible with the support of the people of Nigeria to win the 2023 presidential election and restore good governance, including infrastructural development in the country.
The governor who stated this on Sunday during a thanksgiving service by the state Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Kingsley Esiso, in Sapele, noted that the party was working very hard to win more states in the country as a precursor to getting back control of the presidency which it lost in 2015.
According to him, “with the abysmal performance of the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government, Nigerians are already convinced on the imperative of voting back PDP to power in 2023.
While congratulating Esiso for his re-emergence as the Chairman of PDP in the state, the governor urged him to brace up for future challenges, stating that he should be prayerful for God to enable him to surmount challenges associated with such position.
He thanked the party faithful for their support which led to the re-election of Esiso as chairman of the party.
He thanked leaders, youths and women for their support for the party since inception, adding that with such encouragement, PDP would take over the Federal Government in 2023.
“We have come here to give thanks to God because whatever we achieve in life is not the work of any man.
“Man can try but whatever we do is by the will of God that we triumph and it is only normal that we return all the glory to God.
“Chairman you must learn to work with everybody in the state irrespective of their tribe because, everyone matters in building a political party.
“I can attest that the Esiso-led executive has brought sanity into the party because before the last general elections, we assured our members in the state that we will organise free, fair and credible primaries for all aspirants.
“At the end of all the primaries, our party members realised that we meant business when we said we will organise credible primaries for aspirants because some aspirants close to me lost while some that are not close to me also won.
“Once we are able to recognise that everybody matters in the party it becomes very easy to control the party and I am convinced that, this is the stand of the Esiso-led executive,” Okowa stated.
He solicited support for the State Executive Committee of the party to succeed and urged all political appointees to support their wards to hold meetings.
