The Governor of Delta State, Senator (Dr.) Ifeanyi Okowa has affirmed that there is relative peace in Ika South Local Government Area following his rousing welcome to Agbor by the members of the People Democratic Party (PDP) to the formal flag off of the party campaign ahead of the local government council election.
The governor whose excitement was captured while delivering his speech at the event, said he got almost confused of the flag off campaign to be a national rally as a result of the mammoth crowd which attended the event held at Government Field, Agbor recently. He said that nothing is greater than a united family. He affirmed that the development could only be possible because of the peaceful coexistence among members of the party in the local government.
He said that he was deeply touched and of course feels proud by the unprecedented show of love, particularly from the aspirants under the aegis of PDP United Frontiers who came out en masse and dressed in a colourful uniform to declare their support for the party candidates. This according to the governor proves that the PDP LGA chairman, Hon. Collins Bello led administration is effective and working to discourage division in the party.
According to him, “there is nothing greater than a united family and by this response from the faithful in Ika South, the party remains as one indivisible family and committed as against the incessant lies perpetrated by an indigene of the area who unwisely criticized the state budget negatively.
“However, as we continue to speak with one voice and work together, I urge you to extend hands of friendship to non-PDP members to make them understand that Ika South belongs to only PDP.”
He added, “As a state, we shall remain united by the grace of God so that after six years when we might have completed our tenure, Delta State will be a pointer for good governance”.
Speaking further, Governor Okowa prayed that Agbor kingdom, Ika South and Delta state will continue to find peace, joy and also grow from strength to strength for a sustainable development.
