… As Party LGA Chairmen Receive Vehicles
SAN FRANCISCO, July 11, (THEWILL) – Delta State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan Friday commissioned 25 new vehicles bought by the State branch of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for its chairmen at the local government level.
Governor Uduaghan, commissioning the vehicles in Asaba, observed that that the national Chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Adamu Muazu has brought a new lease of life to the party and that has positioned it to win all forthcoming elections in the country.
“Today, we have a game changer as Chairman of the party at the national level. The fortunes of the party are turning around,” the Governor said, explaining that the vehicles which were provided by the state PDP were to facilitate the movement of the local government party chairmen.
“Our state chairman is developing and uniting our party and at the local government level, the chairmen must have structures and continue to reconcile members of the party because, we believe in grassroots politics. We have developed enough persons to win every ward election, especially in Delta State because there is no party in Nigeria that has its presence in every ward apart from the PDP.”
Governor Uduaghan used the occasion to appeal to members of the PDP to always be slow to anger, saying, “I want to appeal to all of us, let us not react in anger, there are people who are always there to annoy you but, we need to be slow to anger. We need everybody to move forward and with all that happened before 2011, I did promise God that what I want to do is to unite the party.”
He also urged leaders of the party at the local government levels to ensure that the forthcoming local government elections were devoid of rancour, stressing that all disagreements and challenges should be resolved before the elections so that nobody would be given any room to move to other political parties.
State Chairman of the PDP, Chief Peter Nwaoboshi had said that the 25 vehicles were to facilitate movements of the chairmen of the PDP at the local government areas to enable them function effectively for the good of the party.
He thanked Dr Uduaghan for his support for the PDP, noting that the state secretariat of the party, which he described as the best state secretariat of any political party in the country, was ready for commissioning.
Also speaking at the occasion, leaders of the party in Delta North, Delta Central and Delta South Senatorial Districts, Chief Godwin Iwegbue, Chief George Sefia and Hon. Solomon Areyenka respectively, assured Governor Uduaghan that the fortune of the party was increasing in the state.
The party passed a vote of confidence on Governor Uduaghan, his Deputy, Prof. Amos Utuama (SAN); Chairman of the PDP in the state, Barrister Peter Nwaoboshi and other leaders of the party at the ceremony.
This was sequel to a motion moved by Chairmen of the PDP in Bomadi Local Government Area, Chief Pius Labo which was seconded by his counterpart from Ughelli North local government area, Chief Shedrach Imonieroh.
