Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, has affirmed that the popularity of Delta state governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, has to do with his excellent performance and not equity as being argued in some sector.
Onuesoke, who made the statement while addressing PDP loyalists in his office in Warri, Delta state, explained that the people of Delta state are calling for Okowa’s re-election not because of equity or zoning, but in recognition of his ground-breaking performance as the foremost Nigerian governor with the largest number of road projects, youth empowerment, skill acquisition, infrastructure development, small and medium scale industry empowerment for indigenes of the state.
He added that Okowa’s promotion of peace, security and human capital development, which have altogether created prosperity for all Deltans within the record time of three and half years that Governor Okowa has been in office are his ground for seeking re-election.
According to him: “Okowa’s popularity is in recognition as the governor with the highest number of infrastructure development projects in Delta state.
He said Okowa is the foremost governor in terms of being the governor who most frequently visits project sites, completing abandoned projects as well as kick starting, inspecting and commissioning new projects, thereby, creating comfort and prosperity for Deltans through his SMART administration.”
He stated that the people of Delta State are elated with the performance of Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa as Governor of the state and are determined to vote for him enmass for another tenure in the 2019 general elections.
Onuesoke maintained that the people understand that the best way to appreciate the governor for the good works is to support him to victory to consolidate on the remarkable achievements of his administration.
He stated that even those in opposition APC can attest to the good works of Okowa as Governor of Delta State, but for politics of bitterness, they chose to remain silent.
Hear him: “You can feel the bitterness and unrelenting efforts of the opposition leaders to blackmail and misinform the public on the performance of Okowa as Governor in the past three and half years. But despite the blackmails, distortion and misinformation by the haters of the government, the popularity of the administration is increasing by the day. Okowa’s good works are speaking for the party. Deltans are happy and will cast their votes for Okowa and PDP candidates.”
He said that APC is not a threat to PDP in the state, stressing that no political party without a structure can uproot the PDP from Delta State.
He noted that it will be difficult to differentiate PDP from Delta or identifying another party in Delta State apart from the PDP.
Onuesoke pointed out that because of Okowa’s performance, different organizations both in Nigeria and Diaspora took note of him by honouring him with different awards , adding that the latest is Vanguard’s 2018 Governor Of The Year Award.
