The Immediate past governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, has canvassed support for the Peoples Democratic Party’s Vice Presidential candidate, Ifeanyi Okowa.
Uduaghan spoke during the meeting of the party’s leaders in Delta South, over the weekend, to flag off the ward-to-ward campaign for the 2023 general election at his residence in Warri.
This meeting marks his attendance at a PDP activity since the party’s divisive governorship primary.
He urged party members in Delta State to work closely to deliver the presidency to the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, and his running mate.
Uduaghan’s declaration is a major shift from the pre-governorship primary era, in which he allegedly joined forces with his cousin, James Ibori, to declare support for Chief David Edevbie.
The meeting was reportedly convened at Uduaghan’s behest by the Delta South PDP caucus to show that the party stakeholders were working to reconcile all parties.
Uduaghan said, “We must all come together and deliver our candidate. I am saying this with all seriousness and from the bottom of my heart.
“I am old enough in the politics of Delta State to assess people so I know those who are sincere and those who are not sincere. It will benefit us more to deliver our candidate than deliver a candidate of another party.
“I am saying this from experience and that’s what will happen. If you deliver a new candidate he will satisfy his people first before you.”
