He expressed gratitude over the honour done on him by SWC, and solicited their support towards his ambition ,saying that, the battle to uproot PDP from the state was a collective one.
Osiobe then promised to tackle unemployment in the state if he succeeds in his ambition just as he charged the party ward chairmen to reach out to prospective party delegates to enable him clinch the party ticket at the primary election.
In his remarks, Prophet Jones Erhue said Chief Okotie was the first person to inform the party of his ambition to contest the governorship election on the platform of the party in the state and urged him to work hard in order to realise his ambition.
