An aspirant to the Delta State House of Assembly, Engr. Philip Ugbomah has called on the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to learn from the just held governorship election in Ekiti state, South West Nigeria, as he called the election process that led to the winning of the All Progressive Congress, APC, candidate, as a warning sign for the Peoples Democratic Party.
Reacting to the victory of the APC in the state in his campaign WhatsApp group, he praised the incumbent Governor, Dr. Ayodele Fayose for trying to protect the people of the state against the forces of darkness which ultimately overwhelmed the state.
“His Excellency Ayodele Fayose, Governor of Ekiti State saw it coming, he truly Wept for Democracy, for His People, He passed through Pains in trying to rescue His People, he did his best under the circumstance but they were overwhelmed by the Forces of Darkness.”
Engr. Ugbomah pointed out that the PDP can avoid such a mistake, by employing the best process in selecting candidates for the 2019 General Election.
“I write to You leaders of our great Party PDP in Delta that this happenings in Ekiti State is but a stone throw which is indeed a Wake up call to the Leaders of our Party in Delta State to get it right from the fast approaching Primaries, purge ourselves of selfishness, deceit, do the right things.”
He tasked the leadership to give in where necessary, and do away with any form of egoistic pride, as that is the starting point to self-destruction.
“Give where necessary and take away egotistical pride because that’s the starting point as a House divided against itself cannot stand.”
The House of Assembly hopeful however, called on members of the state PDP to continuously stand and promote the achievements of Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa and the Deputy, Barr. Kingsley Otuaro, as they have achieved much, with their infrastructural and human capital policies.
“The government under His Excellency, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, Barr. Kingsley Otuaro has done a great job in the state, and the Peoples Democratic Party, our great party will have to protect their great achievements, by selecting the right people, through the right process as we approach 2019.”
