Delta state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, has said his administration does not discriminate in dishing out democratic dividends to Deltans because he sees the people as belonging to one united family.
Governor Okowa made the comment on Tuesday, January 22, at Otor-Udu, Udu local government area of the state during the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign rally ahead of the February 16 and March 2, 2019 general elections.
Legit.ng gathered that the campaign team was also at Ogbe-Ijaw, Warri South local government area of Delta state.
The governor said: “We run an all inclusive government, we don't discriminate, we don't execute projects based on the level of support we receive from people because, Deltans are one united people, we believe that if you don't support us today, you will support us tomorrow.
“We are impressed with the crowd we are seeing here, it is a clear evidence that the people appreciate the road we are constructing in the area, the schools we have constructed, our empowerment programmes; we are committed to doing more.
“I want to seize this opportunity to thank Deltans, especially, the people of Udu for agreeing that we should work together.”
He thanked the people for agreeing to live in peace with their neighbours, the people of Ogbe-Ijaw, noting that with peace, the area will witness unprecedented development in the next four years.
Governor Okowa who attended the rallies with his wife, Dame Edith, and his deputy, Barrister Kingsley Otuaro, appealed to the people to vote for all the candidates of the PDP.
At Ogbe-Ijaw, he thanked the people of Warri Southwest local government for their support over the years, expressing confidence that with the number of registered voters in the area, they will beat their previous records in terms of number of votes cast for candidates of the PDP.
“People are testifying about PDP because of our good work; I can testify that Warri Southwest is doing very well politically, your leaders are united; remain resolute in delivering high number of votes to the PDP by voting for all the candidates of the PDP," he said.
Governor Okowa continued, “there should be no anti-party activity, all the votes should go to the PDP.”
While listing the projects his administration has executed in the area, he also, thanked the people of Ogbe-Ijaw and Aladja for agreeing to live in peace, saying that with peace, the area will witness tremendous development.
Those who spoke at the rallies include notable PDP chieftains in the state.
