…Unveils Party’s Candidates For Chairmanship Positions
By Miracle Enuji
The Delta State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Barr. Kingsley Esiso has challenged opposition parties in the state to come out of their bedrooms and test their strength at the forth coming Local Government Elections, forecasting that Deltans already know where to cast their votes.
Olorogun Esiso who threw up this challenge during a press conference at the Party’s Secretariat in Asaba on Monday, November 13, 2017, where the Chairmanship candidates of the party for January 6, 2018 LGA elections were unveiled, took a swipe at the All Progressives Congress (APC), scorning that if even they decide to import the master of lies from Abuja, he would not have any good deeds to campaign with.
In his words; “We want to also use this medium to encourage other parties not to sit down in their bedrooms and believe that they will win elections. We are encouraging them to come and campaign. We want to meet them in the field, they should come and tell Deltans what they have done to and for Deltans through their parties. Probably, they will come and tell Deltans that they have brought Nigeria into recession, that today our market men and women can no longer buy foodstuffs from the market. Recession that have taken the prices of goods and services beyond the reach of the common man. I am very sure that they will come and tell Deltans, as they always do that, Dr. Jonathan, our past President and PDP has stopped their wives from conceiving to give them Children because they always lie… Lie Lie Lie is their portion, probably, if they don’t have capable hands in Delta State that can assist them in selling their lies, I trust and I encourage; they can and they should go import Mr. Lie Lie from Abuja, their master, to come and lie for them to convince Deltans to vote for their party.”
While presenting the PDP-chosen Chairmanship candidates alongside their Vice for the LGA Elections, Esiso said; “We are here to inform Deltans that our party, PDP is prepared to go and campaign vigorously for our candidates based on two strategies. One is simply our believe, our trust in the ability, capacity and capabilities of our candidates to win elections, because they have all been carefully and thoroughly screened after which they passed through the Primary process and emerged victorious in their respective constituencies.
“Secondly we are going out there to campaign, basing our campaigns on the achievements of the PDP led government ably led by our Governor, Sen. Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, believing that in the past two years plus, the PDP led Government in Delta State has delivered on our campaign promises which include, superlative infrastructural developments including constructions and renovations of roads, including constructions and renovations of schools, including constructions and renovations of markets and health centres, and hospitals and of course, creating jobs for our youths through the office of Job creation which has gone a long way in empowering our youths. Consequently we believe Deltans are waiting for us to support our candidates trusting in the contributions of the party in the state in developing our people.”
Speaking further, he disclosed that, a statewide campaign for the PDP aspirants will kick off on the 17th of November, 2017 at Aniocha North Local Government Area with Governor Okowa leading the Vanguard across the 25 LGAs which will elapse on the 21st of December, 3017 at Ukwuani local Government Area.
