Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, said on Saturday the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has recovered and returned to restore vibrancy and integrity to Nigeria’s democracy.
He urged Nigerians to partner the party in the efforts to achieve the objective.
The governor stated this during the PDP Non-Elective National Convention in Abuja, adding that the party has become reformed and refocused to win future elections in the country.
Okowa, who is the Chairman of the PDP Convention Committee, said the last two years presented great challenges to the party.
He said the defeat suffered in the 2015 presidential election and the gale of defections were enough to sink the party’s ship, but expressed delight that the party has overcome the challenges.
He urged Nigerians to support the party, adding that it would not disappoint the country.
“Ours is a party firmly anchored on the grassroots, connected to the people in a unique way that recognises that power truly belongs to the people.
“We are rebounding back, realising that there is a champion in each of us in the party.
“A collective leadership and partnership resolved to do things right and that is all that we need to build the strength to recapture power,” he said.
