The Delta State Government has closed schools in Asaba for the PDP’s presidential campaign rally on Tuesday. The Commissioner for Secondary Education Rose Ezewu declined to comment on this decision. Stephen Keshi Stadium and Koka fly-over have been given new looks in preparation for the rally, with an increased presence of security personnel in the area. The vice-presidential candidate and Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa, commented that Nigerians are seemingly ready for a change from the current APC-led Federal Government.
Governor Okowa, who spoke at the Stephen Keshi Stadium following an inspection of the facility, expressed that the PDP was prepared to provide Nigerians with the comprehensive and meaningful leadership they desire. He further remarked that the warm welcome and backing they had received throughout the country was indicative of the public’s hope for a positive transformation. The Governor continued to state that the party was set on rescuing the nation and delivering good governance to the people. He added that the PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, being an experienced politician, was well-versed in the route to Nigeria’s recovery and he would join together with other citizens to recover, reset, and rebuild the country. Governor Okowa concluded by expressing his gratification with the arrangements at the venue and expressing his confidence that the party would have a successful rally on Tuesday (today).
