Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, on Thursday, appreciated the presidential candidate of the main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar for picking him as the party’s Vice Presidential candidate.
According to Okowa, PDP produced a very experience presidential candidate that would rescue Nigeria from the terrible situation.
Okowa who noted that it was hard to pick him, promised to work for the party’s victory in 2023.
The Delta State Governor stated this at the party’s headquarters while accepting Atiku’s offer as his running mate.
Okowa while speaking at the secretariat said, “I appreciate the party for having a successful convention. The convention produced a very experience candidate who could rescue Nigeria from the terrible situation. I know it was a tough decision to pick me like you said this afternoon.
“I understand there is great work ahead of us, and I know God designed this, and we will work hard for the party’s victory.
“Every one of us must support our principal to ensure the party wins in a landslide victory, and in doing so, we must be committed in our various wards. We need PDP to return to power; we have the answers to the questions of the country.
“By the grace of God, we will take on the president and win in a landslide, and I wholeheartedly accept the offer.”
