One of those who is not only doing this but also confident of clinching the governorship seat in the state is the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Kola Ologbodiyan, the PDP's national publicity secretary, on Saturday, April 10, stated that there are some basic and evident facts that will help the party floor other political platforms in the coming election, ThisDay reports.
1. Absence of political activities in other parties
According to Ologbodiyan, the dearth of political and electoral activities in other parties like the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) show that they have already given up any iota of hope to emerge victorious.
The spokesman claimed it is obvious that only the PDP is forthright in terms of campaigns across local government areas of the state.
2. Alleged unfulfilled promises from other parties
Moreover, Ologbodiyan in a post by Vanguard boasted that at the moment, while other parties are still struggling to keep their promises to those who elected them, PDP-owned states in the southeast and other regions have moved forward with laudable developments.
“While other parties are struggling under the weight of unfulfilled promises and misrule, our states are opening new development and investment frontiers in critical sectors, including agriculture, aviation, energy, power, healthcare, education, real estate manufacturing, and massive industrialisation.”
3. Abia state National Assembly bye-election
Added to this, he boasted that the PDP's decisive victory in the last Abia state National Assembly bye-election will set the pace for an even greater win come Saturday, November 6.
“The party represents the hope for the state to rebuild and realise its full potential.
“The sweeping victory of the PDP in the recent Abia State National Assembly bye-election has signalled that the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have lost all foothold in the Southeast region.”
Meanwhile, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers had expressed confidence in the PDP cruising to a massive victory in the coming election.
Addressing PDP leaders in the southeast on Monday, February 8, in Enugu, to reconcile Anambra stakeholders, Governor Wike said winning the governorship election was crucial to the PDP household.
