The Chairman of Delta North Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Council, Chief Godswill Obielum, has said that the large turnout of party members during the campaigns in the wards in Ndokwa East Local Government in the course of the ongoing campaign in the Senatorial District is a confirmation of the acceptability level of the party in the area.
While appreciating the people for their loyalty and large turnout in all the wards visited, Chief Obielum stated that ordinarily, PDP would not have campaigned in Ndokwa East since he was 100% sure that the local government had always been voting for PDP. He said that PDP decided to hold the rallies for the fact that the party was in touch with the grassroots hence the need to come and felicitate with them as well as tell them to get ready for the general election that will be held in the country.
Obielum charged the people to ensure that they vote for Atiku Abubakar as President, Senator Barr. Peter Nwaoboshi as Senator while Hon. Ossai Ossai be returned to the House of Representatives “to continue with the good work they are already doing”. He also advised them to “vote for Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa as the Governor and Hon. Friday Osanebi to continue his wonderful performance at the Delta State House of Assembly.”
In his speech, the Chairman of PDP in Delta North, Hon. Moses Iduh, called on the people to not only collect their Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) but to vote and be ready to protect their votes, “thereby sending those who are presently occupying political positions for self-indulgence out of office.”
He noted that those occupying positions at the federal level have no business being there since they are not in touch with the needs and desires of Nigerians hence the need to send them packing by ensuring that all their votes were cast for PDP candidates only.
The Senator representing Delta North in the upper chambers of the National Assembly, Senator Barr. Peter Nwaoboshi, during his address told the people that as the Chairman of Senate Committee on Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) he had ensured that many roads in Delta North especially in Ndokwa East were tarred while others are being awarded and that some will be completed before the end of the year.
The Director General of Delta North PDP Campaign Council, Hon. Pascal Adigwe, while declaring that Ndokwa East has no other party but PDP urged the youths to actively partake in the election process by ensuring that they have their PVCs, voting and being at the polling units until their votes were counted and recorded.
The campaign team visited ward 1, Ossissa, wards 2 and 3, Umuachi Afor, wards 5 and 6, Aboh, and wards 9 and 10, Ashaka on Thursday, while ward 4, Okpai, ward 7, Ase, and ward 8, Ebedeni, took their turns on Friday.
