DELTA State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan said Monday that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state was ready for the April 11, 2015 Governorship election, saying no party can intimidate the PDP.
At a meeting with PDP members in Delta Central held at the PTI Conference Center, Effurun, the Governor stated that PDP would coast to victory in the governorship and house of assembly elections this weekend, but urged members of the party to work hard to emerge victorious in the polls.
While saying he was sure of PDP winning the governorship election, he revealed that he had commenced compiling his handover notes that he would hand over to Senator Ifeanyi Okowa on May 29, 2015.
According to him, “On May 29, I will hand over power to Senator Okowa. I am compiling my handover notes already that I will hand over to Okowa on May 29 because I am very sure of victory for our party.”
“We are stronger now as a result of our voting strength which we demonstrated on March 28 Presidential/National Assembly elections. We have no apology for voting massively for President Jonathan,” he said, noting that Senator Okowa is the only candidate for Delta.
He said: “Okowa is very experienced. We have passed the stage of having a Governor learning on the job. Okowa has made contacts over the years and we are all working together to win. We have a strong team. The next captain of the team is Okowa and I am appealing to all of you to vote massively for Okowa as we did on March 28. Let us work with one mind, if we do that, no party can win us in Delta Central. Let us not take things for granted.”
He added that, “We must work as a team. No party can intimidate us in the governorship election. We must be determined to win. We are on ground and ready for the election. No time for rumour mongering, let us use our time for proper mobilization to win the election.”
Also speaking, the State Deputy Governor, Prof. Amos Utuama implored the people to vote massively for the PDP, saying they should not be deceived by other parties suffering from “incurable K-legs”.
On his part, the State PDP Governorship candidate, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, described PDP as a united party and implored the people to speak with one voice on Election Day.
“We must be united to win the election on Saturday. Deltans are one people; we one family. Other parties cannot divide us; they are afraid of us and on Saturday, let it be operation deliver all. We are not going to allow them any vote. Other parties do not have followers. We did not grow PDP overnight,” he said.
