BY VINCENT ANIKWUSHE
THE Secretary to the Delta State Government (SSG), Comrade Ovuozourie Macaulay, has commended the people of Isoko North and Isoko South Local Government Areas for their massive turnout at the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) governorship campaign/rally at Ozoro and Oleh.
He said the massive turnout of the good people of Isoko nation was an affirmation that PDP is deep rooted in Isoko land as well as their conviction that those who had been managing their affairs in the PDP government since 1999 had been able to impact positively on their lives.
According to him, “What they are demonstrating is an appreciation of what we have done for them and it is only when they vote PDP that we can do more for them because that is the only way more people can have more appointments, more dividends of democracy and be able to advance development and better their lives”.
Comrade Macaulay spoke to The POINTER during the PDP governorship campaign held at the Oleh Township Stadium, Isoko South Local Government Area of Delta State.
The SSG equally hailed Macaulay Political Vanguard (pressure group) whose members and banners were conspicuous at the venues of the campaign and other pressure groups in Isoko land for their mobilization, sensitization and support for PDP, disclosing that some of the groups had been in existence since 1999.
“These groups have seen so many governors. They are the brain behind most of the votes you get in Isoko land. The whole essence is to give support to the PDP which is the ruling party and the candidates of PDP so that they can win, he affirmed.
“We supported former Governor James Ibori in 2003; we supported Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan in 2007 and 2011 and here again, we are supporting Senator Ifeanyi Okowa”.
He maintained that “We have been supporting all other candidates of PDP and that is why you can see that especially in Isoko North, no other party can win and if my structures alone go to vote, the candidates have won”.
While urging the people to vote PDP in next month’s general elections, the SSG, who is also the leader of Isoko Political Class, reminded Deltans of the need to collect their Permanent Voter’s Cards (PVC) to enable them exercise their franchise, adding that in Isoko, they had done very well in collecting the PVC.
