Ahead of the 2019 general elections, the All Grand Alliance Party (AGAP) Delta state chapter, has boasted that its governorship candidate, Brando Omu, will defeat incumbent Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Chief Great Ovedje Ogboru of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the planned Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Delta state council governorship debate.
AGAP chairman in Delta state, Prince Alex Oyoro made the assertion in an acceptance letter addressed to the chairman of NUJ Delta state council, Comrade Michael Ikeogwu, conveying the readiness of AGAP to participate in the planned NUJ Delta gubernatorial debate billed to hold on a date to be announced soon.
According to the letter signed by Prince Alex Oyoro: “AGAP accepts in good faith, the invitation by the NUJ Delta state council to participate in the governorship debate with open hearts. Our candidate is very ready to face and stand governorship candidates of other political parties.
“I am confident; our governorship candidate will floor Governor Okowa, Ogboru and any other person both at the NUJ debate and at the elections. They’re not the match of our gubernatorial candidate.”
Prince Oyoro said AGAP will ensure it showcases its manifestoes and the stuff that is made of Chief Brando Omu, the AGAP gubernatorial candidate to convince Deltans that it is the party to beat in the state come March 2nd, 2019.
Prince Oyoro commended the NUJ for its bold step in organizing the debate for the governorship candidates in the state stressing that it will afford all the parties the opportunities to market their candidates.
He enjoined party faithful across the state to besiege the venue of the debate with their permanent voter’s card on display and cheer up its gubernatorial candidate up to intimidate and drive cold into the spines of Governor Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa and Chief Great Ovedje Ogboru of the APC.
Prince Oyoro said the PDP should be ready to show Deltans their achievements for sixteen years reign in the state that would warrant the party to continue in office.
He also challenged the APC to come and show Deltans what it has to do different in Delta state when it has failed woefully at the n
ational level with so much suffering in the land. He added that the option remains AGAP as the party has never been tried with power.
