Ahead of today’s Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rally in Asaba, the vice presidential candidate of the party and Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa, has expressed satisfaction with arrangements so far at the venue, stressing that the party would have a very successful rally.

Speaking to journalists at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba, shortly after inspecting the facility, venue of the presidential rally, Okowa said that the PDP would provide Nigerians with all-inclusive and purposeful leadership that the country yearns for.

He said the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, being an experienced politician, knew the path to Nigeria’s recovery and he would work with him and other citizens to recover, reset and rebuild the country.

According to him, Nigerians are already tired of the APC government and are very much aware of what the situation is in this country.

He said: “What we are seeing today is not the Nigeria that we dreamt about with the high level of insecurity and disunity among the people and the fact that we cannot trust ourselves anymore because of the non-inclusiveness in government, that obviously is not the Nigeria we thought about.

“The economy is in great shambles and we believe it will take our administration a lot of work, working also with Nigerians to get ourselves out of where we are at the moment.

“The economy is messed up but we believe, by God’s grace and with the programme we have, we can take Nigerians out of where we are to the new process of rebuilding our great nation.”

He stressed that for the nation to function properly, the issue of restructuring and devolution of powers to states and local governments must be taken seriously.

He argued that the more resources and powers and activities at the local and state levels, the more Nigerians will grow, while competing with one another.

“We believe that Atiku Abubakar is a very experienced man in government and in the private sector and we believe that with his level of experience and capacity, working along with myself and other Nigerians, including the Organised Private Sector, the youths and the women folk, we can turn things around for the country,” he added.
