The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Convention Planning Committee and Governor of Delta state, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, has assured Nigerians that the current economic woes bedevilling the country will disappear when his party ousts the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The governor said PDP has realised and corrected its past mistakes, and repositioned to take-over power to provide good leadership when the party takes back power from the ruling APC in 2019. Governor Okowa, who led party bigwigs on inspection of Eagles Square, venue for the 2017 Non-Elective Convention, said 2019 will not be business as usual for APC.
He said: “It is no longer news that Nigerians are suffering and it was not like this when we were in control of the Federal Government,” he said, stressing that the PDP, remains the only party capable of taking Nigeria out of its present economic challenges.
The governor, accompanied on the tour by former governors Peter Obi, Liyel Imoke, Ibrahim Shekarau and Idris Wada, Rahaman Yero, Celestine Omehia, Senator Biodun Olujimi and other members of the planning committee, maintained: “As a party we have realised areas we made mistakes and we are working hard to correct these mistakes with a view to returning smiles on the faces of Nigerians.
“The reformed PDP is working assiduously to make life more meaningful for Nigerians and as you can see all hands are on deck to ensure the party provides Nigerians with good governance rooted in democratic ethos.”
He said the party was ready to reclaim power from the APC, assuring that the party will deliver dividends of democracy and engender steady growth and holistic development of the country.
