Prominent leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State have served the governing Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) a quit notice, even as they declared the party’s intention to win all elective positions.
They also unanimously endorsed the candidacy of APC Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, insisting that power must return to the South in 2023.
They lamented that the state has been under the bondage of underdevelopment since 1999, declaring that 2023 is a year of liberation.
In his remarks, Senator Omo-Agege who doubles as the governorship candidate of APC in the state harped on the need for unity.
Omo-Agege said he was motivated by a desire to arrest receding hope among Deltans and build a state where the people’s future is brighter than their past.
He said fairness demands that power returns to the South in 2023 since President Muhammadu Buhari, a Northerner, is about to complete eight years in office.
“We need to be united to be able to confront this monster. These are people who keep repeating the same thing and expect a different outcome.
“Having served as President for eight years, it is only fair that power returns to the South. It is for that reason that Delta Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has been labeled for who he is: a traitor.
