Mr Olisa Ifeajika, Chief Press Secretary to Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta, has urged eligible voters in Oshimili North Local Government Area (LGA) to register.
Ifeajika made the call when the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) women leaders from his constituency visited him at the Government House, Asaba, on Thursday.
He called on sons and  daughters of Oshimili North council area of the state, at home and in the diaspora, from age 18 years and above, to leverage on the ongoing online registration exercise of eligible voters.
According to him, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has provided the platform to enable them register and to choose those who will lead them in future elections.
He said he was happy with the peace that had returned to the party in the LGA, stressing that it was through registration of eligible voters that the area could maintain its remarkable support to the PDP.
Ifeajika said that the council area had remained a strong hold of the party, emphasising that the development, empowerment and political appointments that Gov. Okowa had attracted to the area should make them redouble their loyalty and unflinching support to this administration.
“The PDP Oshimili North LGA Woman Leader and the women leaders in the various wards are doing well. I am glad with what their leadership is doing in the area.
“We are proud of our women in Oshimili North. They fully mobilised support for the PDP during the last local government election in the state.
“We should continue to preach peace by promoting peaceful coexistence. I won’t want us to disappoint the governor who had done so well for us.
“The ongoing registration of eligible voters by the INEC is an important exercise that we should embrace particularly, those that have not been registered before or those who have issues with their voters cards.
“I want to also use this opportunity to remind us about the ongoing PDP e-registration exercise and to say that it is equally important for us, as PDP members, to key into the exercise,” he said.
The governor’s spokesman thanked the women for the visit, the gifts presented to him and their resolve to work for the party.
He assured them of the Gov. Okowa-led administration’s commitment to fulfilling its electioneering campaign promises to the people of the state.
Earlier, Mrs. Grace Odiakaose, Oshimili North PDP Woman Leader, said that they came on a thank-you visit on the account of Ifeajika’s benevolence and for being a good ambassador of the LGA.
She said the Governor’s aide had since his appointment impacted the people of the area greatly.
Odiakaose said they are impressed with the human capital and infrastructural development the present administration had executed in the area.
She, however, pledged their continued support for the party and the government. (NAN)
