Ifeanyi Okowa, the People’s Democratic Party’s vice presidential candidate and governor of Delta State, has denied conspiring against the South’s efforts to elect a new president in the 2023 elections.
Goldennewsng reports that Olisa Ifeajika, Okowa’s Chief Press Secretary, delivered the speech on Monday.
According to Ifeajika, Okowa honored the PDP’s decisions regarding the presidential convention in Asaba.
The Southern Governors’ Forum agreed to work toward the realization of a southern presidency after meeting in Asaba, Lagos, and Enugu.
When they returned to their respective parties, Ifeajika observed that decisions regarding the election of a candidate varied.
According to the spokesperson, the PDP party made it abundantly clear to the governors that it might not adhere to their position.
He recalled that the issue prompted the formation of a committee to provide appropriate advice regarding the ticket’s zoning, led by Benue Governor Samuel Ortom.
To enable all candidates to participate in the primary, the committee suggested eliminating zoning.
“No member, including the governors or group, protested the party’s decision, as far as we are aware.” They agreed with the party’s zoning decision.
Since no agreement was reached, there was no bribery anywhere. According to Ifeajika, “delegates at the primary voted as they desired, and the party’s position prevailed.”
