‘Atiku/Okowa Ticket will restructure Nigeria’ – Delta State Governor
Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State says that the Atiku/Okowa 2023 ticket would bring about positive changes in the country, assuring Nigerians that the Atiku Abubakar’s administration will restructure Nigeria when elected.
Okowa made the statement at the Cenotaph in Asaba, where he was received upon his return from Abuja after being nominated Vice-Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the 2023 general elections.
He said the Atiku/Okowa ticket would bring a breath of fresh air, a renewed hope, and victory for the people of Nigeria.
The governor, who arrived at the venue with his wife amid cheers from the crowd of supporters, said Abubakar had spoken consistently about the need to restructure Nigeria since 1986. He added that Abubakar’s plan to restructure the country would make Nigeria a better nation.
Thank you all for the love you showed me today, and for all the hope you have placed in myself, and His Excellency, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, to #RescueNigeria!

“The ticket of Atiku Abubakar and Ifeanyi Okowa is a ticket to grace, hope, and victory.
It is a ticket that will rescue and rebuild Nigeria. I thank all of you for your support; what you have done for me is what is lifting me today to greater heights. I thank God and Atiku Abubakar, who found me fit and worthy to be his running mate.
“I want to thank our National Chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, and all the party’s organs for accepting my nomination as Vice-Presidential candidate of the PDP.
“God has endorsed it, and by the special grace of God, the process of rebuilding and recreation of hope for our Nigerian youths, students, and women will start May 29, 2023.
“It will not be by our might. It is coming from the Lord God, and God will use the youths, women, elders, and opinion leaders of this country to cause this change to come.
“The change that is coming is positive, and it will be very constructive and bring meaningful life to our people.
“I urge Nigerian youths to rise to the challenge ahead. I sympathise with Nigerian youths because what is happening nationally is not the Nigerian nation we thought of.
“But to recreate and rebuild our nation, our youths must be committed.
