Uduaghan Optimistic Of PDP Victory Today
DELTA State Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan has expressed confidence that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would be victorious in today’s governorship and House of Assembly elections.
Uduaghan, who spoke on Thursday at a meeting with PDP members from Delta South senatorial district in Warri, said PDP was fully entrenched in Delta and the state would repeat the feat it performed on March 28 for the party’s candidates.
He expressed gratitude to PDP members from Delta South for the role they played during the Presidential and National Assembly elections.
The governor said it was their efforts and commitment that gave the overwhelming result that President Goodluck Jonathan got and charging them to double their efforts towards delivering the PDP candidates today.
“First of all, I want to thank all of you for the role you played during the presidential election. Delta State played its part in the March 28 elections. Most of the votes came from Delta South. We are all proud members of the PDP. Once again thank you for making us attain such victory.
“Unfortunately, we did not make it at the national level, but that should not disturb us, as we are approaching another election in the next few hours. Let us work hard for us to smile at the end of the day,” he told them.
On the gale of defection rocking the party, Uduaghan said it was minimal in Delta State and there was no cause for alarm.
“It is true that our members have been decamping to other parties since after the first elections. But defection in Delta State has been very minimal. There is no opposition between a President and a Governor; nothing like opposition in governance.
He added: “Let us not be afraid unnecessarily; we shall not suffer as a result of not winning the presidential election. All we need to do now is to improve on our performance in the April 11 (today’s) polls.”
“We are all PDP members; let us unite and work together to emerge victorious in the April 11 election. We are ready for the polls. No shaking, and no slacking. Do not be afraid. We shall win.”
He accordingly charged the PDP members in the district to go all out and win more members for today’s elections, adding that most of the people rumoured to have left were still in the party.
