Delta state governor and People’s Democratic Party vice presidential candidate Ifeanyi Okowa has said the PDP remains the only party capable of bailing Nigeria out of the dungeon the All Progressives Congress has plunged it into.
Okowa also stated that he was very optimistic that the PDP would not only win the election by an impressive margin, but would also get massive votes from the Southeast in general.
He said his party would win Anambra state by a wide margin, despite the state already having two presidential candidates in the Labor Party and the All Progressives Grand Alliance.
Okowa stated this Sunday at the Uche Ekwunife campaign office, Awka, after attending a special church service to mark the 60th birthday of the Anglican Archbishop of the Province of Niger and the Bishop of the Diocese of Awka, Rt. Venerable Alexander Ibezim.
According to the governor, important appointments had eluded in the Southeast region for the past 12 years, a situation that his party all wanted to correct.
Okowa insisted that the main reason the PDP wanted to win the 2023 presidential election was to save the country from the current poor state the APC had plunged it into.
He said: “The PDP is unaware of the fact that Ndigbo has never had a fair share of appointments in the country for the past 12 years and I stand here to promise that Ndigbo will play an important role in our government from 2023 and beyond.
“We are aware that Anambra has two presidential candidates for the 2023 elections, but we are going to win, not just a landslide, but an impressive margin. We will also get massive votes from the Southeast in general and Anambra state in particular, despite the state parading two Labor Party and All Progressives Grand Alliance presidential candidates.”
Okowa was flanked by a PDP Board of Trustees, BoT member, Chief Ben Obi; the PDP’s state chairman, Chief Ndubuisi Nwobu; the PDP’s senatorial candidate for Anambra Central, Senator Uche Ekwunife (Iyom), among other top executive members of the PDP in Anambra State.
In their separate remarks, Ben Obi, Nwobu and Ekwunife Okowa assured that the state of Anambra would vote massively for the PDP to give the party a resounding victory in 2023.
