As the date for the National Convention of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) draws near, Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa has expressed confidence that officers of the party would emerge through free, fair and transparent process.

Speaking on Wednesday in Asaba when one of the chairmanship aspirants, Chief Bode George paid him a courtesy visit, Okowa said that the party needed to ensure that its national convention was conducted in a free, fair and transparent manner so as to stabilise and move the party forward.

“We are a very organised political party, we believe that the process of choosing our officers at the national convention will be free, fair and transparent, everyone has to ensure that it is a fair process to move the party forward,” he said.

He described the array of credible and reputable persons vying for different positions as a sign of democracy and a wake-up call to all party members, stressing that it gave credence to the fact that the PDP is the leading party in the country.

The Governor commended George for taking time out to go round the country to campaign, stating that that would awaken PDP members and help stabilise the party.

Earlier, George had said that he was in the state to solicit for support of party delegates to the forthcoming national convention, stressing that the party needed to ensure a free, fair and transparent electoral process so as not to repeat the mistakes of the past.
