The Delta State Governor Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa has called on the leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party to work together for the success of the party.
Mr. Okowa stated this in a statement to felicitate former Vice President Atiku Abubakar over his victory as the party’s presidential candidate.
He said if PDP is to win and rescue Nigerians from the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led federal government, all hands must be on deck to achieve the mission.
“Now, all former aspirants, leaders, and all other stakeholders in our party must come together to liberate our citizens from the shackles of APC and give them a better life and country,” he said in the statement by Olisa Ifeajika, his media aide.
The governor expressed confidence in Mr. Abubakar’s capability to provide needed leadership that would lead the party to accomplish its “Rescue Nigeria” agenda beginning from 2023.
He urged the candidate to, as the face of the PDP in the 2023 general elections, bring his political and socio-economic wherewithal to bear on the responsibility.
Mr Okowa, who was chairman of the accreditation committee of the convention, also congratulated the national chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu, and other stakeholders of the party for conducting a peaceful and successful convention.
