The National Youth Coalition for Okowa/Otuaro 2015 in association with Tompolo Grassroot Movement led by Asiwaju Prince Olatunji Olusoji on Tuesday mobilised over 5,000 youths from the different local government areas of Delta State at the Oghara Township Stadium, to canvass votes for Senator Ifeanyi Okowa for Governor, Ms. Erhiatake Ibori for House of Assembly Ethiope West Constituency and all other PDP candidates in saturday’s elections.

Speaking on behalf of the group, Chief Dennis Otuaro, called on the youths in Delta State to come out in large number to vote for PDP candidates.

Comrade Paul Bebenimibo also admonished the youths to shun politics of violence and not to allow themselves to be used as tools in the hands of politicians who are bent on causing trouble on election day.

In a related development, Prince Olatunji, thanked the youths for the large turnout recorded at the event, expressing confidence in the candidacy of Senator Ifeanyi Okowa and Kingsley Otuaro.

Crown Ibori, a youth leader from Oghara, who spoke on behalf of the youths, commended the group for the initiative and assured the members of their loyalty to the PDP and their desire to vote for Okowa on Saturday.
