Gov Okowa says PDP is now ready to rescue Nigeria from poverty, insecurity

The governor also explains why Ayu was chosen as National Chairman.

Delta Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, says the successful conduct of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Convention is a pointer to the party’s readiness to rescue Nigeria from the “current hopelessness that pervades the country.”

Speaking on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’, the governor says Nigerians are tired of rising insecurity and the economic crisis ravaging the country.

“We need to recreate hope; we need to make them believe that Nigeria is one, that Nigeria is a united country and that there is hope for a new Nigeria.

“With the successful conduct of our national convention, we have sent the message with the right conviction to Nigerians that PDP is truly ready to rescue them.

“The rescue mission is about our country. We know exactly what we are in at the moment; there is so much crisis in everything; crisis in security, crisis in the economy and a lot of people are truly very hungry.

“The number of the poor people is growing by the day and the youths are becoming very restive and they are no longer comfortable with the country they call their own.

“When you look at all these things, with the fact that the economy is nose-diving everyday and when you look at the kind of budget that is being presented to Nigerians, there is cause to worry that it is not something that can actually take us in the right direction.

“There are a lot of issues and most practically, the insecurity issue in the land which is growing worse by the day, and that is beginning to impact negatively on production, in terms of agricultural produce and that is not good enough for our country.

“From real insecurity we may find ourselves in the next few years going into food insecurity and that will probably be the worse of everything we can have as a nation.

“So, looking at the totality of all these, you will definitely agree with me on the need to re-jig the pathway that we are toeing at the moment.

“It is not the best for us and I think it’s agreeable by all Nigerians that something needs to be done; that’s why we have presented ourselves as a credible alternative to take Nigeria back to the path of progress; to take Nigeria back to a situation where people can begin to build hope for tomorrow,” he says.

On the alleged dominance of the party by the governors and why the leaders chose Senator Iyorchia Ayu as National Chairman, Okowa says the party yearned for someone with a command structure and administrative capacity, which Ayu possesses.
