Gov Okowa

The recent appoint and inauguration of the Governor of Delta State, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa as the chairman of the Special National Convention Planning Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has been commended by a front runner of the Ndokwa East constituency seat of the party, Engr. Philip Ugbomah.

Reacting to the appointment, Engr. Ugbomah said the appointment was  in recognition of the governors competence and love for the tenet of internal democracy in the party as he has been an apostle for good governance.

“His Excellency, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa has been an apostle of internal democracy. He did it in November 2017 at the national convention, he did it in Ekiti, and we know he will ensure transparency in choosing who bears the PDP ticket for 2019 presidential election”.

Engr. Ugbomah said what the party needed was  to position itself for victory at the 2019 general election through free and fair congresses at all level, to liberate Nigerians from the hardship that has rocked the country in the past three and half years.

“Nigerians are in serious pain. They need liberation, and it’s only our great party, the PDP that will liberate us. But we can only achieve this by going back to the centre, which will come with free and fair primaries and congresses, and the party is ready for that. And our governor will deliver the best candidate for Nigerians to be their next president in May 2019.

He used the opportunity to congratulate Gov Okowa for the conferment of Grassroots development and Good governance Award on him by the African Leadership Magazine Group in New York saying the award was in recognition Okowa’s  peoples oriented achievement by the international community.

In a congratulatory message to the governor on the Award, Engr. Philip Ugbomah,  said that the award is a proof of the governors commitment to deliver in his election promises through the SMART Agenda mantra that will usher in prosperity to the state.

Since assumption of office Gov Okowa has  shown not only to Deltans that the state need new orientation, but a permanent solution to our continuous existence as a state, which he in concert  with his cabinet has  shown through different policy statements and implementations.
