There may be heavy gun battle in Isoko land on February 16, read the powerful statement Delta PDP just released


The Delta State Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has received shocking and impeccable information of a martial directive from the high command of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC to do everything possible, both legitimate and illegitimate, legal and illegal, covert and dubious, crooked and manipulative, to ensure that they deliver victory to the APC Candidate for Isoko Federal Constituency, at all cost, during the Saturday, February 16, 2019 National Assembly election in Isoko land.

We want to state loud and clear and with unflinching authority, that the Delta State PDP, has no doubts whatsoever that this information is authentic and incontrovertible and we hereby use this medium to caution INEC to be extremely careful and conduct a free, fair, transparent and credible election, even as we advise the electoral umpire to desist from any untoward acts that may potentially damage it’s credibility as an independent conductor and engender an avoidable conflict that can heat up the Isoko nation dangerously and explode into a crisis that may jeopardise the democratic process and uncontrollably.

Let’s us confirm categorically that our candidate, the Rt. Hon Leo Okuweh Ogor, is a fearless, courageous and distinguished member of the Federal House of Representative, who has built an outstanding reputation as one of the pillars of Nigeria’s democracy and given the Isoko nation quality representation over the years. He is not only poised to win the February 16, National Assembly election for the Isoko Federal constituency seat once again, but is fully primed, capable and unequivocally ready to continue to deliver the dividends of democracy to his beloved Isoko people.

We therefore strongly call on INEC not to manipulate or declare a doctored result for Isoko Federal Constituency, in obedience to the instruction of the APC high command, but to maintain its independence and neutrality and ensure a level playing ground where the will of the people will be upheld at the end of the day. The PDP is fully ready and prepared to protect and defend the rights of our candidate and all Deltans to elect the representatives of their choice at all levels.

A word they say, is enough for the wise.

Dr. Ifeanyi Michael Osuoza
State Publicity Secretary
PDP, Delta State.
