It was a sea of heads at Government Field Agbor, on Saturday July 7, 2018, with the large turnout of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) faithful, who came from the three senatorial districts of Delta State, for a mega rally, where they affirmed their unalloyed support for the re-election of Governor Okowa; with the unveiling of “Okowa we know, Okowa we support” project.
The crowd which comprised both the young and the elderly from Delta North, South and Central, defiled the heavy downpour, to prove a point through the well attended mega rally, that the Executive Governor of Delta State, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, is the man whom the people know and would support for a second term in 2019 governorship election.
The historic event was convened by Hon. Festus Chukwuyem Okoh, the member representing Ika South Constituency at the Delta State House of Assembly, Asaba; while the co-convener was Hon. Taleb Tebite who is fondly referred to as Professor of Empowernment, is an Ughelli South House of Assembly hopeful.
In their separate remarks at the epoch making event, the following personalities; Hon. Festus Okoh, Hon. Taleb Tebite, Dr. Matthew Kwuodu, Hon. (Barr.) Victor Okoh (Ika South LGA Chairman), Hon. Collins Bello (Ika South LGA, PDP Chairman), Mr. Amino Imasua (Secretary, Local Education Authority, Ika South Chapter) and Comrade Ogagaoghene Ndidi Yole (The Programme Consultant) extolled the sterling qualities of His Excellency, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa. They all appreciated and acknowledged Governor Okowa, as a man of honor, a prudent and proactive leader, whom they noted stands for peace, progress, love and unity, adding that he commenced the infrastructural development of the state in spite of the little allocation from the federal government to become the “Road Master”.
Continuing, they urged the gathering to intensify their efforts in sanitizing members of their various local government areas to vote enmasse for the re-election of the state governor for a second tenure next year. They also encouraged the electorates who are yet to get their Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC) to make sure they go and register in the ongoing voters registration exercise organized by Independent Electoral Commission (INEC), to enable them participate actively in the 2019 general election.
Before formally unveiling the project, “Okowa we know, Okowa we support”, the event convener, Hon. Okoh, on behalf of members of the project, sent a strong warning to leaders of the opposition political party, in the neighbouring state, to mind their business as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Delta State, is ready to defend their positions against all odds.
Highpoints of the ceremony was the official unveiling of the “Okowa we know, Okowa we Support” Project; Portrait of His Excellency. The event also featured the party faithful from the Twenty Five Local government areas marching happily in the heavy rain to endorse the candidature of Governor Okowa, whom all the groups that participated in the mega rally unanimously passed a vote of confidence on: urging him to continue at the Government House Asaba, till 2023.
