For his 2019 gubernatorial reelection campaign, Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, has appointed Professor Sam Oyovbaire and Prince Ned Nwoko respectively, as the State Chairman and Deputy of his Campaign Organization.
Nwoko, former member of the National Assembly is one of the most formidable political juggernauts and strategists in the state, while Prof Oyovwaire Is a political scientist and strategist who was once in the inner circle of the then General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida military regime between 1985-1993.
This comes at a time when the support of Nwoko is indisputably needed to launch the PDP into victory at all levels of political contest, based on his populist ideology and overwhelming acceptance by majority of the electorate.
Feelers from the government circle have it that Okowa, PDP gubernatorial flag bearer for 2019 election, is pleased with Nwoko who against all odds had remained in the party to support him and sustain the Anioma agenda for a two term of office for an Anioma born Governor of Delta state.
Nwoko, who is currently in court fighting for the Delta North Senatorial ticket of the PDP, which he alleged was denied him had often said he would remain a patriotic PDP politician from the Anioma area, which is Delta North, where Ifeanyi Okowa hails from with the hope of completing a two term tenure for the region as the laid down convention that started with Delta South, then Central, and now Delta North.
Oyovwaire, Nwoko alongside other appointees of the state Campaign Council will be inaugurated, December 10, 2018 at the Government House, Asaba.
