Vice-Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa, has given assurances that the party will go into next year’s elections as one united family.
Okowa said this at Benue State Governor’s Lodge, Asokoro, Abuja while speaking with newsmen after a closed door meeting with Governor Samuel Ortom.
He said the reconciliation process initiated by leaders of the party to resolve all issues that emanated from the Presidential primaries and his subsequent emergence as the Vice Presidential candidate was on, stressing that at the end, “all issues would be resolved.”
The Vice Presidential candidate of the PDP noted that the Governor of Rivers State, Mr. Nyesom Wike was a strong party man who have worked very hard for the success of the PDP and would not want to work for another political party.
In his remarks, Governor Samuel Ortom corroborated the position of the Vice Presidential candidate, saying leaders of the PDP were still discussing to correct whatever that may have gone wrong after the Presidential primaries.
Governor Ortom however stated that as a critical and major stakeholder of the PDP, Wike needs to be placated to ensure that the reconciliation process is easy and smooth.
