We would clinch power from APC no matter the political intimidation and arrest – Secondus.
The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Uche Secondus, Saturday, in Delta State, said no amount of political intimidation, arrest and detention would cow the PDP from wrestling power from the the All Progressives Congress, APC, at the forthcoming general elections in 2019.
He disclosed this at an event by the Anioma nation to honour one of their own, Ifeanyi Okowa, a former senator, an Ika son, and current governor of Delta State, who has also indicated interest in a senatorial seat of the state.
The PDP National chairman’s assertion came at the backdrop of strong rumours that the supposedly host, Peter Nwaoboshi, senator representing Delta North Senatorial District in the Red Chambers who was allegedly arrested and being detained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over corruption charges.
A frontline senatorial aspirant in Delta North, Ned Nwoko, who graced the event described Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as a jinx breaker, having emerged as first Anioma son to be elected Governor of Delta State in 2015.
Nwoko said with the giant strides of Governor Okowa, he deserves a second tenure and called for the support of all Deltans towards his reelected in 2019.
The occasion was graced by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, National Chairman, Uche Secondus, governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, former governors of Delta state, James Ibori and Emmanuel Uduaghan who all endorsed Okowa for second term come 2019.
