It has been postulated that with evidence of good governance in Delta State, through the efforts of the Governor, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa to build a stronger state, the forthcoming Delta State Local Government Elections will be an easy one for the ruling party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
This was the opinion of the Executive Assistant to the Governor on Religious Matters, Bishop Greatman Nmalagu, on the sidelines of the party’s campaign train in Ukwuani Local Government Area.
The governors aide said that evidences abound from the experiences got; All Progressives Congress (APC) members decamping to the ruling party during the ongoing campaigns across the local government areas in the state, clearly shows that Deltans are set to reward PDP with massive votes for the good works the administration of Governor Okowa is doing in the entire state.
He stated that other evidences are the large crowd of supporters that turn out and the good comments of politicians, non politicians; civil servants, Christians, non-Christians and traditional rulers.
He stated that the large crowd that is always experienced at the venues of campaign, is lacking at the venues of the opposition parties, saying this is obvious Deltans are already prepared to reward PDP with massive votes to enable all the chairmanship and councillorship candidates of the party to defeat the opposition parties in the state.
Bishop Nmalagu further pointed out that the candidates are aware of the achievements of the party under Governor Okowa in the state, and they based their campaigns on the achievements of the party, as the commonest campaign slogan of the masses is, ” PDP all the way, carry go, Governor Okowa is doing well, PDP you will win again”.
He said the candidates and members of the public are very happy about developmental strides of the governor on road constructions and other areas.
To that effect, the candidates promised to complement such good works.
He stated that the Christian community leadership and members across the state are campaigning with PDP, and can attest to the fact that Deltans are set to reward PDP with massive votes for the good works Governor Okowa is doing in the three senatorial districts.
