Nigeria (Blank NEWS Online) –By Albert OGRAKA:
Leaders and Chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta state have decried the recent unsavoury statements credited to some members of All Progressive Congress (APC), who were hitherto PDP members in the state, describing them as inconsequential and of no effect to the fortunes of the PDP.
The Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon Monday Igbuya, said the All Progressives Congress (APC) had disappointed Nigerians at home and abroad, advising APC leaders in the state to stop day-dreaming and building castles in the air.
Igbuya, who commended the state Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa for ensuring prudent spending and investing the state resources towards effective development of the state, described Okowa as a benchmark for outstanding achievements in the country.
He therefore enjoined the All Progressives Congress (APC) and other opposition parties in the state to leave to political stage, as there was no vacancy for idlers who pose as politicians, insisting that, “Stop dreaming. APC cannot win in Delta State”
Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Delta state, through its State Publicity Secretary, Mr. Ifeanyi Osuoza, also dismissed the purported defection of some Deltans to the All Progressive Congress, APC, noted that politicians were at liberty to seek political platforms to actualize their political ambitions, but added that many politicians who have defected to other platforms outside the PDP, have been roundly defeated in past elections in the state, dismissing them as political spent forces who lacked the capacity to win election at any level of governance.
He noted that the PDP was solid in Delta State and was well poised to continue to win elections in all nooks and crannies in the state, insisting that the acceptability of the PDP has been further enhanced by the excellent performance of the Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, who he described as a miracle working governor, in the past one year.
Osuoza, who affirmed that the current Party leadership had commenced a comprehensive drive to re-position the PDP in the state and consolidate on the gains of democracy over the years, hailed the astute and resulted-oriented administration of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, as showcased in the massive commissioning and inspection of projects across the three Senatorial zones, to mark the first anniversary of his administration.
In the same vein, as a benchmark for outstanding achievements in the country.
While commending the governor for his administrative style, Igbuya said the All Progressives Congress (APC) had disappointed Nigerians at home and abroad, advising APC leaders in the state to stop day-dreaming and building castles in the air, insisting that, “Stop dreaming. APC cannot win in Delta State”
Also, the PDP Chairman in Patani local government area of Delta state, Mr. Godspower Asiuwhu, has condemned recent attacks on the party by one Fred Latimore Oghenesivbe and other APC chieftains, alleging cracks in the government of Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa on the Social Media. He described the APC members as disgruntled enemies of the prosperity of Delta state.
“It is rather unfortunate that the peddlers of this ‘hard-to-believe’ rumor are from the opposition party who are well known for their false propaganda. It is pertinent to note that the Delta state House of Assembly members have always been in support of the SMART agenda of this administration. The show of support Senator Dr. Okowa led administration receives from the house is also visible from the prompt attention Executive bills receive whenever they are sent to the house, even the APC led Federal Government do not enjoy this kind of support.
“Also, Local Government Chairmen and commissioners have timelessly pledged their support towards the growth of this administration, politically and otherwise. It should be noted here that those who claim to want to take over Delta state do not pose a threat to the leadership of the state as the good people of Delta state know what is good for them. The conglomeration of failed politicians do not in any way pose a threat to the Unity of the Peoples Democratic Party in Delta state.”
