Incumbent Governor of Delta state, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan has assured that the Democratic transition from his administration to that of the Governor-elect, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, on May 29, 2015 will be smooth.
While thanking Deltans for their peaceful conduct during and after the elections, Governor Uduaghan assured that development strides in the state under Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa will be rapid, peaceful and progressive.
He therefore called on all other political parties that contested the elections to accept defeat, embrace the winner and help to create an atmosphere of peace and development in Delta State.
“My appeal to all Deltans is that we should remain calm and peaceful as we look forward to more dividends of democracy from PDP administration in the state”, he stated.
He however enjoined parties and contestants that are aggrieved to channel their grievances lawfully to the appropriate quarters or approach the elections tribunals for redress rather than take the laws into their hands.
He further commended the members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the State as well as the electorate for renewing their faith and trust in the PDP to pilot the affairs of the State for the next fouryears.
