Chief Press Secretary to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, Charles Aniagwu, says the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are not having sleepless night over the All Progressive Congress (APC) quest to challenge the part for the control of the governorship seat in 2019.
Aniagwu stated this in an interview with Tribune, where he revealed that the achievements of Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa would be enough to subdue any attempts from APC to overthrone them in the seat of power during the 2019 general elections.
“Before that, we celebrated Democracy Day not just to dance and mark a date. We did for the successes recorded. We have not gotten to where we want to be, but we have left the shores and sailing steadily. That is the headache of those in the opposition while it is the joy of the brothers and sisters who elected the governor to serve them.
“Because of these achievements, I can confidently tell you that those rising up in the APC know they just want to be contestants not because they know they will win. We welcome them on board. The fiercer the battle, the sweeter the victory.
“In the last three years we have recorded giant strides in a good number of sectors, be it in job creation, education, agriculture, road and indeed the need to renew our urban areas and make them much more livable for our people. To that extent we do have the reason to roll out drums to celebrate the third anniversary of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, but before I come to that, let me tell you that individuals outside the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are already intimidated by the performance of Governor Okowa.
