The promise was made when PDP visited Constituencies 2,3 and 4 in Southern Ijaw for their campaigns.
Receiving the PDP campaign train, the member, representing Southern Ijaw Constituency 4 in the State House of Assembly, ,Chief McDonald Mbadiwe, welcomed them and assured them of total vote from the constituency.
“I want to thank you and welcome you to constituency 4. This is the largest constituency in Bayelsa State. This constituency has never been taken by APC, this is PDP constituency. What we are saying is that come November 16, we are going to deliver Diri and Ehrudjakpor.
The Vice Chairman of the local government, Perkins Ogede added that the local government and its entirety are prepared to turn-in their votes for Diri and Ehrudjakpor.
“Today we are not coming here to campaign. We only come to celebrate our victory awaiting us in November 16, 2019.To my Knowledge, Southern Ijaw is one foundation of the PDP in Bayelsa State because, we have had the rear privilege to produce first executive governor of Bayelsa State, the only way Southern Ijaw can pay the PDP back is to massively vote for PDP.”
Also Speaking, Special Adviser to the Governor on Oil and Gas, Salvation Ibina Rufus said that APC was a dead party.
Representative of the governor, Moses Apreprebo, expressed optimism that with the massive turn out, PDP will win Southern Ijaw.
“You can see the mammoth crowd present here to receive our governorship candidate, Senator Douye Diri, is an expression that Southern Ijaw is PDP and I want to clear the air over the erroneous believe that there’s no PDP in Southern Ijaw Local Government is a lie. Southern Ijaw is going to vote massively for PDP because it is a PDP Local Government Area.
On his part, Diri appreciated them and promised to bring good project to the constituencies.
“I want to thank these constituencies; you gave us your vote when we came here with your son.
We will come back here to thank you. We will do those things you want us to do, we will work tirelessly to satisfy you people, we will work with your son, the one you call our Moses”.
