Okowa, Udom Commission PDP Presidential Campaign Office in C/River, G-5 Governors, Sandy Onor, Vena Ikem Absent


By Our Reporter

The People Democratic Party (PDP) has commissioned its presidential campaign office in Cross River with Governors, Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom, Douye Diri of Bayelsa and Godwin Obaseki of Edo State in attendance.

Predictably, the Gov Nyesom Woke-led group, otherwise called G-5, did not attend the event thereby pointing to the fact that the crisis in the largest opposition party was still far from being settled.

Those who did not also register their presence were the  governorship candidate of the party in the State, Senator Sandy Onor and the State Chairman of the Party Venatius Ikem amongst others leaders.

Both Senator Onor and Ikem are strong political ally of Governor Nyesom  Wike of River State who had vowed not to support Atiku/Okowa ticket, and their absence may not be unconnected to the commitment they may have entered with Governor Wike.

Apart from the commissioning of the office, which is located along Ndidem Usang Iso road, the visiting governors also used the opportunity of their presence in the ancient city to inaugurate the Youth and Women wing of the presidential campaign council.

Speaking at the event, the Vice Presidential Candidate of PDP and Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa said the party had never lost any presidential election in Cross River state.

‘I know we’ll not lose in 2023 but we need to work hard because the number of votes matter and I believe Cross River State will do better.

“We came to let you know that we are with you all the way and there’s no reason to fear, we’ll work with you to ensure we win all the election in Cross River State.

‘And concerning our nation Nigeria, there’s a huge challenge; the level of disunity and insecurity in this nation is something that should worry each and every one of us.

“And the fact that the educational system is threatened, and the fact that our children could not even get employed because industries are folding up by the day new one are not coming, should worrybus especially for posterity sake.

“I believe as a party we need to quickly recover this nation and to rebuild it in such a manner that we’ll e able to stay on course again. We need to have a secure nation, we need to re-grow the economy, we need to reunite the people and these are what the presidential candidate has promised Nigerians. Our own, as a party, is to keep to our promises.”

Also Speaking, Governor Udom Emmanuel who inaugurated the Youth/Women wing of the Campaign Council, said I really want to appreciate this campaign organization because I don’t think there are many campaign office that’s as fine as this, my duty is to go round all and bring out the scores.”

Former Governor Liyel Imoke, who is regarded as the leader of PDP in Cross River State, assured party faithful that the PDP bigwigs woukd be back in the state again for proper campaign.
