The Delta State Governor and Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ifeanyi Okowa, has said the PDP remains the only party capable of rescuing Nigeria from the dungeon which the All Progressives Congress has plunged it.
Okowa also stated that he was very optimistic that the PDP would not only win the election with an impressive margin, but also garner massive votes from the South-East in general.
He said his party would win Anambra State with wide margin, in spite of the fact that the state already has two presidential candidates in the Labour Party and the All Progressives Grand Alliance.
Okowa stated these at the Uche Ekwunife Campaign Office, Awka, on Sunday, after attending a special church service to mark the 60th birthday anniversary of the Anglican Archbishop of Niger Province and Bishop of Awka Diocese, Rt. Rev. Alexander Ibezim.
According to the governor, key appointments had eluded the South-East region for the past 12 years, a situation he said his party was all out to correct.
Okowa insisted that the major reason the PDP was seeking to win the presidential election in 2023 was to rescue the country from the current poor state which the APC had plunged it into.
He said, “The PDP is not unmindful of the fact that Ndigbo have never had their fair share of appointments in the country over the past 12 years and I stand here to promise that Ndigbo will play a major role in our government as from 2023 and beyond.
“We are aware that Anambra has two presidential candidates for the 2023 election, but we are going to win, not just a landslide, but an impressive margin. We will also garner massive votes from the South-East in general and Anambra State in particular, inspite of the fact that the state is parading two presidential candidates of Labour Party and All Progressives Grand Alliance.”
Okowa was flanked by a PDP Board of Trustees, BoT member, Chief Ben Obi; the state chairman of the PDP, Chief Ndubuisi Nwobu; the senatorial candidate of the PDP 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 assured Okowa that Anambra State would vote massively for the PDP to give the party a resounding victory in 2023.
