The Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the 2023 election and Governor of Delta State, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa has assured that the party would resolve and overcome its current challenges before the elections.
A statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Benue state Governor, Nathaniel Ikyur, quoted Okowa as assuring that the party would go into the elections as one united family to ensure its resounding success and victory.
According to the statement, Okowa gave the assurance after a closed-door meeting with Governor Samuel Ortom at the Benue State Governor’s Lodge in Abuja.
Okowa 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, and that all issues would be resolved.
He noted that the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike was a strong party man who had worked very hard for the success of the PDP and would not want to work for another political party.
The statement also quoted Governor Samuel Ortom as saying leaders of the PDP were still discussing to correct whatever that might have gone wrong during the presidential and vice presidential tussles.
Governor Ortom however stated that as a critical and major stakeholder of the PDP, Governor Wike needed to be pacified to ensure that the reconciliation process was easy and smooth in the interest of the party.
