UGHELLI —GOVERNOR Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State has emphasized that Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was not in any alliance with other political parties in the state ahead of the 2019 general election.
The governor made the disclosure, weekend, during the inauguration of the PDP Ughelli North Ward and Local Government Area Campaign Committee held at Oteri in Ughelli.

He said: “I want to reiterate this and sound it clear for everyone to hear. We are loyal members of the PDP in the state and at the federal level and have only one candidate for the Ughelli North, Ughelli South and Udu House of Representatives position in the person of Samuel Mariere.
“At no time did we enter into alliance with any candidate from any other political party.”
Tasking members of the committee to take their campaigns to their wards and units, PDP chairman in Ughelli North, Lawrence Agbatutu, who inaugurated the committee, said: “We are anchoring our campaign on a unit based campaign to sensitise our people on the need to vote for the PDP in the 2019 elections and work starts immediately.”
