A Special Assistant to the Delta State Governor on Politics, Chief Emmanuel Erezih (Okpomo) has expressed his pleasure at the success of the recently concluded Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National convention.
Chief Erezih, a chieftain of the party in Isoko North Local Government Area and the convener of Okpomo Advancement Group 2023 (OKAG 2023), commended the party’s ability to resolve its crisis in a peaceable and timely manner.
He applauded the new National Working Committee of the Party and especially His Excellency, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa who was the chairman, convention screening committee for the choice and emergence of Mr Mohammad Kadede who at just 25 years of age, emerged as the National Youth Leader of the Party, thus positioning the party as a party with a vision for the youths of Nigeria.
According to Erezih, what this means politically, is the relevance of youth inclusiveness in the political atmosphere of Nigeria.
Speaking on the aims and objectives of the Okpomo Advancement Group 2023, he stated that youth inclusiveness in politics cannot be undermined especially as the time is upon us to create an upset in the political status quo, adding that OKAG 2023 comprises actively of seasoned grassroot politicians who are in tune with trends and are willing to work with any youthful candidate in the fourth coming 2023 general elections.
He called on youths to ensure they register to join the PDP en masse and ensure they collect their Permanent Voter’s Card and vote massively for the PDP come 2023, “please do not choose to be disenfranchised, your power is in your vote, do not be discouraged and say your vote doesn’t count, it does count”.
Noting that PDP has set the ball rolling and the doors are wide open to all and sundry, Erezih said “it is a time for youths in Nigeria to make a statement, and the PDP has provided the springboard. If a change is what the youths truly desire, then I would encourage everyone of us to key into the bright initiative of this political party”.
