2023: Group dares Okowa; Says PDP VP candidate can’t stop LP’s victory in Delta
As Nigerians look forward to next month’s general elections, a group, Peter Obi Support Network (POSN), an international political support group, has assured the Delta State governor, Ifeanyi Okowa that nothing will stop the Labour Party (LP) and its presidential candidate, -Peter Obi, from defeating the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta state.
The assertion was contained in a statement issued by the group after it’s yesterday, copy of which was made available to legit.ng in Awka, Anambra State.
The group said that despite alleged intimidations from Okowa and his PDP minions, that the PDP vice presidential candidate cannot stop Obi and the LP from taking Delta state.
The group noted that Okowa, as the Vice Presidential candidate of the PDP, is expected to campaign on his achievements of 8 years as governor of the oil rich Delta state, rather than preventing the Labour Party and Obi from using public facility built with general public’s tax.
It added that the only achievement Okowa can show to the whole world is to further plunge the state into debts, despite huge allocation received from the federal government.
The statement in part reads, “Gov Ifeanyi Okowa’s refusal to grant the Peter Obi Campaign train access to any public facility in Delta State for their campaign further exposes the PDP presidential ticket as an unlawful, despotic and dangerous ticket. It also betrays the morbid fear and trepidation for the LP candidate’s overwhelming ever-growing grassroots support wherever he goes.
“Consequently, POSN urges Nigerians to do everything possible to avoid falling into the PDP dangerous entrapment again. Public facilities in Delta State are not owned by Okowa or the PDP, but as the name clearly implies, they are owned by the people. It is, therefore, an abuse of power and a most draconian act for the governor of a state to stop opposition political parties or any other lawful group from having access to such public facilities, especially when these groups are willing to meet every requirement for them to use the facilities.
“Gov Okowa is afraid of his own shadows. He knows that he can’t win Delta for the PDP, even with the billions of Naira of state funds he has allegedly pumped into that hamstrung ship, and continues to pump in. The Labour Party has taken over Delta State, and there is absolutely nothing Okowa can do about it. He can only cry and cling to the protection of the paraphernalia of his incumbent office for the few more months he will enjoy it.”
