Deputy Governorship Candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Delta State, Rt. Hon. Friday Ossai Osanebi has insisted that the party would not fail to rescue the state from misrule by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
He vowed that the APC would deliver on the mandate and turn the state around for good if given the opportunity in next year’s election.
Addressing over 500 community and clan youths and leaders drawn from the three senatorial districts and 25 local government areas of the state on Tuesday in Asaba the former Deputy Speaker of the Delta House of Assembly said with his nomination as a youth, Delta APC and its governorship candidate, DSP Ovie Omo-Agege have squarely considered the interest of Delta youths in the scheme of things.
Osanebi urged youths to personally hold him responsible if the party failed to deliver on its campaign promises when elected into power in 2023.
He alluded to the recent appointment of two commissioners by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa from Ndokwa East local government area, the state constituency he represents in the State Legislature and averred that no amount of enticement could change the minds of his followers.
“This youth forum was convened less than 24 hours and you can see the turnout. I am glad my exit from the ruling party has gifted my constituency with two commissioners for the very first time, with so many other political aides.
“Yet, I keep receiving youths defecting from the PDP in droves. The youths of Delta know the leaders they can trust. I want to put it on record that I should personally be held responsible if our administration fail Delta youths when elected into power in 2023”, Rt. Hon. Osanebi noted.
Highpoint of the interactive forum was the inauguration of the Delta APC Youth Campaign Directorate, with Prince Stanley Emiko as Director General.
