The Governor who attended three campaign rallies commencing with that of Patani local government area in Patani, Uvwie local government area at Effurun and Warri South local government area at Warri, stated that obviously, the PDP is strong in the state, emphasizing that what matters is the margin with which such victory is secured.

“Get your people to register and collect their voters cards to increase your voting strength, it is not enough to say you have won, the margin with which you win matters a lot, engage in rigourous campaign and don’t take things for granted,” the Governor said.

At Patani, Governor Okowa stated that candidates of the PDP will not discriminate against the people, asserting, “I am not discriminating, I am carrying everybody along and I know that the candidates will not discriminate after winning the elections because, they will be your representatives.”

While at Uvwie, Governor Okowa disclosed that plans are on for his administration to commence widows assistance programme in 2018, he stated at Warri that it was good that leaders of the party are united to deliver candidates of the party and are working for common purpose.

Former Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan in his speech reeled out some of the achievements of the PDP-led government in the state, noting that the party has endeared itself to the people through the execution of people-oriented projects.

The state Chairman of the party, Olorogun Kingsley Esiso expressed confidence that with the success story of the PDP in the state, there is no opposition political party to challenge the PDP observing that some individuals may post stories on the social media claiming to belong to opposition political parties.

At the rallies, Esiso presented PDP flags to the chairmanship candidates and candidates for the councillorship positions.

Some of those who spoke at the rallies include Sir Pius Sinebe, Hon. Jerry Eruvbeddede, Hon.  Evelyn Oboro, Hon. Daniel Reyeneju, among others.

They lauded the leadership qualities of Governor Okowa which they say has solidified the PDP in the state.
