PDPFoundation laying ceremony for the Peoples Democratic Party’s, PDP, guest house in Delta State was laid at the weekend by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa who described the state as a trailblazer in strengthening the political party’s structure.
According to him, Delta State plays host to the best PDP secretariat in the country with the completion of an ultra-modern edifice in Asaba, noting that the state has set another pace by constructing a guest house for the party.
Senator Okowa, who performed the foundation-laying ceremony in the presence of the Vice Chairman of the party in the South-South, Dr Cairo Ojougbou, state chairman of the party, Chief Edwin Uzor, and other party stalwarts, observed that the main structure of the PDP was the strength of its membership in the state and urged them to contribute to the construction of the guest house.
“We thank Deltans for their support for the PDP; there is no other state that has the type of secretariat we have in Delta; the PDP secretariat in our state is the best in the country and it is our prayer and hope that this guest house will be completed during the course of this year.
“We know that the greatest structure of our party is membership and as it concerns this project, no single person will fund it, it must be funded by all of us as members of the party; whatever you have, the party will accept it, we should support this project, we should support our party.”
The governor urged all political office holders to be conscious of the fact that the position they are holding is in trust for Deltans, warning that anybody found wanting in his activities would face necessary sanctions.
Chief Uzor in a welcome address said the guest house had become “necessary for members who may sleep over when in Asaba and it will be a veritable source of revenue for the party.”
The chairman called on all party faithful to support the project and lauded Okowa for delivering democratic dividends which has given a boost to the fortunes of the party.
