Deltans Will Not Regret Votng PDP –UZOR

By RUTH OKWUMBU
DELTANS have been assured that their confidence in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will be justified as all elected officers from the party will work vigorously to deliver on the party’s manifesto, and realise the dream of Prosperity for all Deltans.
This assurance was given by Delta State Chairman of the Party, Chief Edwin Uzor, in an exlcusive chat with The POINTER in Asaba, recently.
Speaking on the fate of Delta state after May 29, he assured Deltans that the PDP candidates would improve already existing legacies, not only to justify the massive votes they got in the state, but to ensure another win for the party in four years time. He stressed that the governor-elect, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa was set to pick up the baton and improve on all the legacies of the Uduaghan administration.
“From the Governor-elect, Deltans should expect an improvement on all what Governor Uduaghan has already started. As soon as he collects the baton, he will continue and improve on all programmes of the present government. Governor Uduaghan has three points agenda, while Senator-Okowa is coming in with five point agenda, among which you will find wealth creation, as well as youth empowerment and job creation. Deltans will not be disappointed, having voted for the PDP”, he assured.
He also revealed that the reason why PDP had won Delta state was because of Senator Okowa’s strong relationship with Deltans at the grass-roots, and his track records in previous positions held in the state, and urged all politicians to work on their grassroots support, as it would form the basis of winning an election at any other level.
Uzor maintained that no politician would be able to win an election at any other level, if he has not been able to secure his unit, nor would any public officer serve the people well if he did not have a good rapport with the people at the grassroots.
“In some cases, we see where some big politicians lose elections in their unit. The worth of any politician to his political party is his grassroots popularity, and his ability to win his unit for his party. Some also claim to be popular in other units, but if you cannot win your home unit, how can you win your ward. All politicians ought to have a good rapport with their people so that they can communicate to the government of the day the true needs of the people”, he said.
