“I congratulate the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) our candidate for the 2023 Governorship Election, Rt. Hon Sheriff Oborevwori and the entire party faithful for this victory.”
“I will like to also use this opportunity to however, call on every member to come closer, including our aggrieved brothers to join hands with the MORE Agenda, as we are all one. It’s a contest, and we have selected our candidate for next year’s governorship election, which has been affirmed by the highest court in Nigeria, the Supreme Court today.” He said.
He also thanked the governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa for his unrelenting support throughout the period, saying it shows the leadership quality of one who will always support success.
