Okowa Challenges Deltans To Check Electoral Malpractice


OGWASHI UKU – Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State has challenged Deltans to check any form of electoral malpractice during the fast approaching general election.

The governor made the call at the PDP campaign rallies at Aboh, Kwale and Ogwashi Uku in Ndokwa East, Ndokwa West and Aniocha South Local Government Areas of the state on Wednesday.

“There will be no room for rigging, there should be close monitoring of the elections because, and our votes must count.”

While urging them to collect their Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs), he encouraged others to get theirs; “we should get all the votes that we can.”

He urged members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to remain united to achieve victory at the polls.

According to the governor, who was accompanied to the campaign rallies by his wife, Dame Edith, his running mate, Burutu Otuaro, and other top politicians in the state, with unity and cooperation, the PDP would win in all the elections billed for February 16 and March 2, 2019.

“We are going into the elections as a united people, we should cooperate because through cooperation, we will get maximum number of votes; let no one be involved in anti-party activity, let us get votes that all of us will be proud of,” Governor Okowa said

He added, “the leaders and the youths should work together, everybody should be recognised; this is the turn of Delta North to complete two terms because, it will not be good that after working for other Senatorial Districts to do two terms respectively, the people of Delta North will fail to support their own for two terms; we have worked, our success stories abound in all parts of Delta, we will do more in our second tenure because, we are experienced and we have peace.”

Excited with the huge turnout of Deltans at venues of the campaign rallies, Governor Okowa expressed confidence that he may be returned unopposed by the people as his main opponent in the elections may join his campaign train.
