A chieftain of  the  Peoples Democratic   Party (PDP) in Delta State, Dr.  Gabriel Chukuma Oyibode, has congratulated Senator Ifeanyi  Okowa on his victory at the polls as Governor-elect.

Oyibode was Okowa’s rival at the governorship primaries of the PDP before the main election.

Oyibode, who addressed journalists at his country home in Ezhionum in the Ukwuani Local Government area, described Okowa as a visionary leader who has been in government many years from the local government administration to the state levels before becoming a Senator.

He said with Okowa’s vast experience in government administration, he was fully equipped to take Delta State to the next level. Oyibode described the election of the Governor-elect as a true reflection of manifestation of the will of God through the people’s mandate.

He said Okowa has justified the crusade for equality and justice in the political equation of Delta State.

He added that Okowa represents the wish of Deltans to remain united in diversity which is a panacea for sustained peace and overall development of the entire state.

He commended all patriotic Deltans for electing Okowa with a landslide victory against all odds.

Oyibode called on all Deltans irrespective of political affiliations to translate their massive vote into support for the incoming administration to enable the Governor-elect  bring his immense wealth of experience in governance to bear through his laudable agenda to transform Delta State.

He added that Okowa’s mission was a journey to liberate Deltans from poverty.
