The Delta State Governor and Vice-Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, has urged youths and support groups of the party to shun hate speech and ensure that their utterances were unifying and not divisive ahead of the campaigns for the 2023 general elections.

Okowa made the call at the inauguration of the PDP New Generation state chapter held on Wednesday in Asaba, the State’s Capital.

The inauguration with the theme “Politics beyond today, securing our future” featured the swearing-in of State Executives and Local Government Area Executives of the group.

The governor charged the youths to ensure that they mobilised every vote in the state for the Atiku-Okowa ticket as the only party fully prepared to reset the country and bring it back to work.

Represented by the Senior Political Adviser, Chief Funkekeme Solomon, the governor said youth development was one of the cardinal points of his administration.

He said, “As a support group, your first duty is to strengthen the party and the campaigns of the party because it is the party that is contesting elections and the party that must win.

“So you must develop your content. You need good content to go far. I like to say that PDP in Delta State will harvest all votes available.

“Every Deltan is duty bound to harvest every vote for this ticket. We should be happy that for the first time, our leader is being elevated to the Vice President position; this is more important.

“There are several platforms in this state to create jobs for the youths, such as the Ministry of Youth Development, Ministry of Girl Child Empowerment and the Bureau for Job creations, and Ministry of Women Affairs.

“All these ministries have created over seven thousand jobs in this state. The Widows have monthly alerts in every part of the state.

“These programmes in Delta State can be replicated at the Federal level with Sen. (Dr.) Ifeanyi Okowa as the Vice President of our dear country.”

He remarked that his administration had ensured ethnic harmony and peaceful co-existence in the state, adding that he would bring his wealth of experience to bear on the country.

“We have developed a platform for peacebuilding in this state, and the result is the peace we enjoy in Delta. We can replicate the ethnic unity nationally if we work hard enough to harvest votes for Atiku/Okowa ticket.

“If this is achieved, our country will be unified and peaceful, and only the Atiku/Okowa’s candidacy have the proper experience for today’s Nigeria, given the mismanagement of the APC government.

“So I urge your group to campaign with these issues and be rest assured that Delta is fully PDP. Work together with other support groups for the single goal of making PDP victorious at the center come 2023,” Okowa stated.
