Ifeanyi Okowa, Governor of Delta State and Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP’s Special Non-elective National Convention, has expressed confidence that ‘high profile’ defectors will join the party in the next three weeks. Okowa made the declaration at the Eagles Square, Abuja, venue of the party’s convention.
“We just came to see what is on the ground, I believe that our people will be safe because we have everything under control, we are not expecting hitches at all.
“We are doing very well as a party and as a committee. In this kind of planning you will have some challenges here and there but there are solutions being proffered to everyone of them and we are confident that we are on the right track and it shall be well on Saturday.
“I believe that a lot of people who thought that the party was going to implode will realise that we are back and ready to offer what it takes to better the lives of Nigerians.
“Many of our members that left earlier due to one form of disagreement or the other will return to their party because the National Caretaker Committee has constituted a Reconciliation Committee as well as a Contact and Mobilisation Committee to reach out to them.
“From the way things are going presently in this country, I believe Nigerians will realise that PDP is the only alternative that can bring Nigeria out of her present economic challenges. We are expecting high profile defectors in the next three weeks or so,” he said.
