The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Sapele Local Government Area flagged off its local government council election campaigns on Thursday, February 25, 2021, with Hon Eugene Inoaghan, the former Sapele local government council boss who is seeking a second term in office urging voters to reelect him for continuation of the rapid development of the local government.

The party leaders while speaking at Ugborhen, Ozue, and other communities said that with Inoaghan and Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, the promise of Smart Delta was a project achieveable and was prepared to grow stronger with more projects.

The campaign-like carnival which saw PDP leaders and faithful visiting ward 20, 19, 18, 17, 16 and 15 on its first day, saw the chairman of the campaign committee, Hon Julius Egbedi and Delta State Commissioner of Agriculture, member representing Sapele in the Delta State House of Assembly, Hon Felix Anirah, PDP chieftain and Special Project Director of Asaba International Airport, Hon Austine
Ayemidejor, Chief Ejaife Odebala, Chairman, Rural Water Supply & Sanitation Agency (RUWASSA), Chief Perkins Umukoro, party LGA Chairman, Chief Benson Okorodudu and Chairman, Protocol/Publicity Committee of campaign, and others present.

The leaders while speaking in turns, assured voters that with the return of Inoaghan, the development which the Local Government has been experiencing was bound to continue

“You know we have never had it so good like this, that is why we are saying PDP is the only party that has your interest at heart. The past three years have seen Hon Inoaghan doing what no other chairman has done, not only has he touched our roads, development has been steady with the Governor of the state, Senator Dr Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa behind it. We are now experiencing infrastructural development like never before. So we urge you to vote a party that has your feeling. A party that will be there for you. Let’s come out enmasse March 6 and vote for Eugene so that we can continue to enjoy the dividends of democracy” Chief Umukoro told the excited crowd who had come to welcome them.

Speaking in the same vein, Austine Ayemidejor said that the turn out of party faithful and residents is a testimony of how much PDP has done for the people of Delta State, with recourse to the governor’s massive infrastructural development and to say thank you to him, we owe it to vote enmasse, and I know that the people of Delta State and Sapele in particular will vote PDP, because it is the only party that cares for them, adding that PDP is the only party in Delta State.

He therefore enjoined voters to come out enmasse on March 6 to vote Inoaghan again.

Expressing optimism, the Chairman of Contact and Mobilization Committee of the campaign, Hon Austine Ayemidejor, said that “PDP will win in every ward of the local government.

Again, the Special Project Director of Asaba International Airport Austine Ayemidejor said that as far as he was concerned there was no opposition party in the local government area, adding that PDP has always won elections in Delta State from 1998 till date.

“There can be no opposition with a party that wins only two local government out of twenty-five. Delta State is PDP, and it will always remain PDP by the grace of God,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Chairman of the campaign committee, Hon Julius Egbedi who was speaking during the flag off ceremony said that the ceremony was a huge success as party faithfuls came out in their numbers for the ceremony, adding that the turn out for the March 6 election would be more.

Continuing, Hon Julius Egbedi said that he was sure of victory for the party.

The campaign is expected to continue on Monday 1st of March, 2021 with a visit to ward 14,13,12,11,10 and 9.
