The recent appointment and inauguration of the Governor of Delta State, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa as the chairman of the Special National Convention Planning Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has been commended by a frontrunner of the Ndokwa East Constituency Seat of the party, Engr. Philip Ugbomah.
In a in reaction to the appointment, Engr. Ugbomah said the appointment is in recognition of the governor’s competency, and love for the tenet of internal democracy in the party, as he had been an apostle for good governance.
“His Excellency, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa has been an apostle of internal democracy. He did it in November 2017, at the national convention, he did it in Ekiti, and we know he will ensure transparency in choosing who bears the PDP ticket for 2019 presidential election”.
Engr. Ugbomah said what the party needs to position itself for victory at the 2019 general election is free and fair congresses at all level, to liberate Nigerians from the hardship that had rocked the country in the past three and half years.
“Nigerians are in serious pain. They need liberation, and it’s only our great party, the PDP that will liberate us. But we can only achieve this by going back to the centre, which will come with free and fair primaries and congresses, and the party is ready for that. And our governor will deliver the best candidate for Nigerians to be their next president in May 2019.”
