Vice-presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and governor of Delta, Sen Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, Tuesday, challenged Deltans to produce no fewer than one million votes for the party in the forthcoming general elections.

Okowa said the votes would justify his emergence as running mate to the party’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and urged the people to make it a reality through their votes “for the good of all Deltans and Nigerians.”

He gave the charge at Ogwashi-Uku during the party’s local government campaigns in Aniocha South and Aniocha north local government areas of the state.

The governor said his emergence was an act of God because he was at his home when he was chosen to become vice-presidential candidate of the party.

“We have over 3.3 million registered voters in Delta and I challenge us to churn out over one million votes for our party to enable us deliver on our rescue Nigeria mission.

“The more votes we bring from Delta, the bigger my voice will be in the party and the greater things we will witness in Delta and Nigeria.

“I know that we have won this election already but we need to up our numbers because God has endorsed our election and we are only waiting for the day to come and pass,” he said.

He urged the people to go back home and mobilise votes for the party, and affirmed that God had sanctioned the party’s victory at the polls.

“This election is a BIVAS election; so, it is quite different from what we have been having but I am optimistic that we have the numbers to win.

“Let us go back home and collect our Permanent Voter Cards and ensure that we reach out to all our people wherever they may be,” the governor stated. On the governorship election, he disclosed how God revealed Oborevwori’s emergence to him, and charged the people to support him because God had endorsed him as a worthy successor.

“The emergence of Chief Sheriff  Oborevwori as our party governorship candidate is divine because God revealed his emergence to me and I can assure you that he is a very humble man who will be answerable and accountable to all our people,” he said.
