DELTA 2023: Udu PDP Leaders Throw Weight Of Support For Otuaro.
The leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta State’s Udu Local Government have pledged their support to the state’s Deputy Governor, Barr. Deacon Kinsley Otuaro, in 2023.
The PDP leaders revealed this on Thursday, when the deputy governor paid a consultation visit to the party’s leaders ahead of the 2023 gubernatorial election.
Barrister Kingsley Otuaro has announced his candidacy for governor of the state in 2023.
Speaking concerning the development, the PDP Chairman of Udu Local Government Area, Rt. Hon. David Siloko stated that because of the antecedents of Barr. Kingsley Otuaro and his principal, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, the party leaders will support the aspiration of the deputy governor.
According to the party chairman, the scorecard of the administration of Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa in the Udu Local Government Area is 99%, and by the grace of God came 2023, the party in Udu will work assiduously to make sure that Barr Otuaro becomes the next governor of the state.
Siloko said: “It is clear. It is known to the state and known to the world that Deacon Kingsely Burutu Otuaro is from Udu. You have done so much for Udu by way of development because if your master has failed, you have also failed. So we are not afraid to say that Udu is behind you. You are number two in this government and in the coming one you will be number one.”
The deputy governor paid a consultative visit to Udu’s party leaders and delegates to inform them of his electoral intentions for 2023.
He claimed to have the “inside workings” of the current government and the ability to maximize the many institutional changes that Governor Okowa’s administration has already begun.
He also expressed gratitude to the community for its previous assistance.
Otuaro said: “You will recall that we have been in government and governance for seven years now and all the successes we have made as a government will not be possible without the consistent and painstaking support of the Udu Party leaders.
“The government of senator Ifeanyi Okowa has done well. The records are there. We have done well in terms of infrastructural development all through the nooks and crooks of Delta State and Udu Local Government Area is not an exception.”
Senator Ifeanyi Okowa’s government has done a lot of positive things, and Otuaro appealed to the party leaders for their help in continuing the good job.
In addition, the deputy governor conducted a visit to Ughelli North Local Government Area to meet with party officials from Delta State’s governing party, notifying them of his plans to run for governor in 2023.
In response to this development, Olorogun Esenone Otoroba, the PDP acting chairman in Ughelli North, urged the deputy governor not to forget the people of Ughelli North if he ultimately takes the job.
Otoroba said: “You spoke well, we know that you are qualified to contest and we know that you are a bonafide member of PDP. Our leaders have prayed. Sir, I want to join the leaders who have prayed for you, to ask that when you get there, don’t forget us. Is God that gives power but God doesn’t come down to give power, God uses men to give power. Consistently seek the face of God and put this project before God because he has the final day.”
