PDP, Ibori, Others Laud Deltans, Okowa For Victory


The Delta State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has appreciated the people of the state for the party’s overwhelming victory in the Governorship and State House of Assembly elections held last Saturday
The party’s appreciation was contained in a statement issued by its Publicity Secretary, Dr Ifeanyi Osuoza, last Monday in Asaba.
“It is with deep sense of humility and sincere gratitude to God, that the Delta PDP, expresses its profound thanks and appreciation to all Deltans for the overwhelming, landslide victory you gave to our party in the March 9, elections.
“Your decision to return Gov. Okowa for another term, has not only upheld and reaffirmed the principle of equity, which has been the bedrock of the sustainable peace and harmony we have enjoyed as one Delta.
“It has further cemented your endorsement of his good works in his first term and strengthened him with the confidence and energy to even deliver greater prosperity to the people.
“We specifically wish to commend the military high command and other security agencies for their professionalism and strict adherence to the doctrine of Peacetime Rules of Engagement (PROE).”
Meanwhile, the All Progressives Congress (APC) State Governorship Agent, Dr Festus Erubaye, has rejected the governorship election result and pledged that the party would challenge it at the tribunal.
Erubaye alleged that the elections were marred with violence, and that card readers were not deployed to places PDP won.
In a related development, former governor of Delta State, Chief James Onanefe Ibori, has congratulated the people of the state for choosing peace and unity by re-electing Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for a second term.
In a statement signed by his Media Assistant, Tony Eluemunor, Chief Ibori said that the people of Delta State spoke with one voice last Saturday and overwhelmingly supported Okowa to continue his good work.
