Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State has charged leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state to head to their different units and ensure that their people vote massively for the party in the forthcoming elections. He said this is necessary to ensure that PDP gets 100 per cent votes in the elections now scheduled for March 28 and April 11.

Addressing members of the campaign organisation of the PDP in Asaba on Wednesday, the Governor observed that the shift in date for the elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has provided more room for people to collect their Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVC) which would make them eligible to vote.

“As a party that has been on ground since 1998, we have enough man power to win in every election,” the Governor said, adding: “Political leaders, coordinators and candidates at the local government, ward and unit levels must work together, continue with our mobilisation campaign at the grassroots to give us victory, nobody should be too big to be part of the ward team.”

Dr. Uduaghan frowned at reports that some candidates of the party were not carrying some members along, asserting that no one should be taken for granted when it comes to elections. He urged the candidates to reach out to everybody not-minding their political leaning or views.

He stated: “Some of the candidates have to come down from their high horses. We should not take anything for granted; it should not be a master/servant relationship. It is your duty as a candidate to reach out to aggrieved persons. Our candidates should stoop low and meet the people that contested with them in the primaries so that they can get the support of all.”

On PVC, the Governor reiterated collecting it is very important and observed that the shift in date of the elections by the INEC would enable prospective voters collect their PVCs.

“We are still having challenges with our PVC collections, without the card, you cannot vote, the card reader can only take the PVC, it cannot accept the TVC, our people should all collect their PVCs,” he said.

In his speech, the gubernatorial candidate of the PDP in the state, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, called for a coordinated campaign to enable the party achieve victory at the polls.

On his part, the chairman of the party in the state, Chief Edwin Uzor, urged PDP members to work as one united family to achieve victory at the polls.
