DIRECTOR of Media and Publicity of the Delta State Peoples Democratic Party Campaign Organization, Dr. Festus Okubor has lauded President Jonathan for his gracious virtue of conceding defeat.

Okunbor said: “We are indeed extremely proud of the leadership of our party, from the President to his followers. What is obvious is that, what has eluded the Nigeria for decades, which is, the right attributes of true democracy has been bequeathed by the PDP to Nigeria.

“The presidential election was keenly fought. The 25 per cent votes the President got from across the 25 states in Nigeria makes it obvious that he has support across the country.  He has been so gracious in conceding the defeat by congratulating the winner. This is the first time it is happening in this country. And it is a great virtue and a great achievement of the party for democracy in Nigeria.”

Okubor however said the APC should not dissipate energy on plot to win Delta state, insisting that Delta is wholly a PDP state.

“In Delta state, PDP won massively in the 25 Local Government Areas for Jonathan. We have resolved here to go ahead to win the governorship election in the state.

“Already, we have won the three senate seats and nine House of Representatives’ seats. It is obvious that Delta is a PDP state. We have done what is expected of us in a good political management, so to deliver the state for our party is a task that must be effectively done.”

The former Chief of Staff urged PDP supporters in the state to go ahead to win the governorship, insisting that “it is only PDP that has shown rightful presence across the 25 council areas in the state”.
