The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Ughelli North local government Constituency II has inaugurated about a thousand eight hundred man campaign council with a vow to deliver all its candidates in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
Those inaugurated into the committee include Barr. Jaro Egbo as Chairman, Chief Francis Onobrodjere, Director General, Dr Isaac Akpoveta, Director of Finance, Barr. Clement Ojegba, Director of Youth mobilization and Mrs Gladys Agba, Director of Women mobilization.
Others are Chief Oteme Bartere as Director of security, Chief Tony Ifomoni, Director of voluntary groups, Chief Asakpa Ide, Director of religious group engagement, Chief Harrison Agbuge, Director, traditional/cultural group engagement and Honourable Oke Omohwo, Director of new media.
Addressing the committee, the Ughelli North Local Government campaign coordinator, Barr Samuel Marierie disclosed that the campaign committee for the local government, which according to him was over 1800 persons had to be splitted into two, Ughelli Constituency I and Ughelli Constituency II since it had two candidates contesting the State Assembly seats in the local government.
He explained that, having just a single campaign committee would make it difficult for the party to properly campaign for both candidates as they will have different movement schedules, adding that with two separate committees it would be easier and more effective in mobilizing the electorates to vote PDP candidates across board.
Speaking at the event, the newly inaugurated Chairman of the committee, Barr. Jaro Egbo said PDP was going to win all elective offices in the Constituency.
Egbo said, “We are here to sign an accord, that today, with God being our witness, we shall witness victory to victory. It’s going to be PDP all the way. It’s going to be PDP for president, PDP for governor, PDP for the Senate, PDP for House of Assembly and PDP for house of representatives. It’s going to be PDP all the way.
“Our Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa is going to run with Atiku and we are going to produce the vice president from Delta state. Not only that, for the first time, we are going to have a home grown governor, with full local content. A governor that is complete Urhobo, the mother is Urhobo, the father is Urhobo, the wife is also Urhobo, he is Rt Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori.”
Inaugurating the committee, Chairman of PDP, Ughelli North, Mr Kesiena Nomoja urged them to work tirelessly for the victory of all the party’s candidates.
He pointed out that, while they have been selected as members of the committee, it’s their work and result that will speak for them whether or not they were deserving of their various positions.
In his votes of thanks, the Chief Host of the event and the party’s candidate for the Ughelli North local government Constituency II at the State House of Assembly, Hon. Onoriode Aguofure commended members of the party for turning out in their numbers to grace the event.
Aguofure assured the party faithful that the confidence they have displayed towards their candidature would not be taken for granted but will be rewarded with quality representation after the party have secured its victory in all the elections.
