“I thank our Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa who has sustained the legacy of keeping our party intact in the state through hard work and as a team player.
“This is a new dawn for Delta State because our people deserve MORE which we are going to implement to the benefits of all.
“MORE is all about meaningful development, opportunities for all, realistic reforms and enhanced peace and security.
“I thank Deltans especially Ndokwa people for their support and for voting for the PDP and this was evident from the manner the news of our victory was received across the state and beyond yesterday, it was simply, ecstatic.
“From Asaba to Warri, Bomadi, Burutu, Kwale, Ughelli, Agbor, Oghara, Koko and all over the state, the joy was palpable and I was even more surprised to get home yesterday to see people from different places partying in my house, celebrating our victory; with this type of joy in the people, we have a mandate to show our appreciation through working hard to improve on the legacies of past PDP-led governments in our state.
“There is no doubt that our Governor, Senator Okowa, has done so well, but, it will be a challenge for us to do more as encapsulated in our agenda.
“Thank you for the show of love, keep praying for us and it is important that we support the administration of Governor Okowa to finish well; the man is still on duty, so, let us keep assisting him with whatever we have for him to keep delivering the goodies of democracy to Deltans till he hands over to us on May 29, 2023.”
