OHANAEZE WELCOMES OKOWA’S CHOICE AS PDP VICE-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE

Apex Igbo sociocultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has expressed joy over the emergence of Delta State governor, Ifeanyi Okowa as the vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

THEWILL reports that Sen. Ifeanyi Okowa was unveiled as Vice-presidential candidate of the PDP by Atiku Abubakar, the standard flag bearer of the Party on Thursday in Abuja.

Ohanaeze made its position known in a statement issued on Friday, by its National Publicity Secretary, Dr Alex Ogbonnia.

Dr Ogbonnia described Okowa as ‘an Igbo prodigy, astute administrator, sagacious politician, brilliant physician, prudent resource manager, detribalised patriot and purveyor of morals’.

Okowa, a medical doctor, is a former secretary to Ika North East Local Government; chairman, Ika North East Local Government; commissioner for Agriculture and Natural Resources; commissioner for Water Resources Development; commissioner for Health; secretary to the Delta State Government; senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria; ECOWAS parliamentarian and governor of Delta State.

According to Ohanaeze, “It is only grace that explains the mystery behind the profound achievements by a few in various areas of life which paradoxically present enormous challenges to many others.

“Perhaps, this explains why Okowa ennobled the various offices he held with remarkable skills, exceptional diligence, elegance and panache.

“Okowa resonates as a team player, diverse ethnic manager with a friendly finesse and character comeliness.

“He is one of the few who has sustained in government without the elixir and grandeur delusion that has become the characteristics of many in positions of authority.

“Okowa has served both as subordinate, coordinate and super-ordinate to several persons without skirmishes. Dr Ifeanyi Okowa is a quintessential gentleman.”

Dr Ogbonnia expressed optimism that Okowa’s candidacy would add electoral values to the PDP.
