Delta PDP, APC trade words over Okowa’s performance
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State have traded words over Governor Ifeanyi Okowa’s performance in the last one year.
APC chieftain in the state, Chief Hyacinth Enuha, had last weekend described the performance of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as shoddy and fell short of expectation, adding that come 2019, the APC will take over the state.
But in a swift reaction yesterday, PDP’s Publicity Secretary, Mr. Ifeanyi Osuoza, described APC’s position on the Okowa-led administration as a ruse and calculated attempt to distract a focused government.
Emphasizing that Chief Enuha is a political liability loafing around in Delta North, Osuoza recalled that Chief Enuha as former PDP member in the state had tried unsuccessfully to hijack the political structure and stifle the emergence of the vibrant and progress political vision in his constituency, only to be disgraced out of contention.
The PDP publicity scribe said: “After Enuha’s efforts failed to produce good results in his attempt to hijack the political leadership of his constituency, his egocentric greed for domination, autocracy and dictatorial tendencies ended in monumental humiliation.”
Noting that Enuha had been seeking political relevance in different political platforms, including the Republican Party of Nigeria (RPN) and at present the APC, Osuoza said his ploy to foist negative political imprimatur on the electoral landscape has continued to fail.
He said that PDP though not averse to constructive criticisms based on empirical facts, added that such criticisms should be committed to facts as succinct evidence.
