Members of the PDP
Polls smooth, orderly, say Obasanjo, Amosun
Reacting to the outcome of the polls, Ejakpovi said: “That our great party, PDP, lost the presidential election to the electoral umpire, INEC, is not in doubt.
“This because as an umpire that is supposed to be unbiased, INEC is not supposed to use card reader in the South and give room for multiple voting without the card reader in the North.
“We believe our tested presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and our party will know what to do in the interest of our great party and our country.
“The people of Delta South senatorial district and those of Isoko nation voted for the return of Senator James Manager and Mr. Leo Ogor to the Senate and House of Representatives, respectively “because of the legislative experience they have gathered over the years.”
Describing Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as a trusted performer; he said: “His re-election, no doubt, is a done deal.
“March 9 is the day we, as Deltans, will speak with one voice and cast our votes for Okowa and all PDP candidates for the state assembly elections.”
