Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State has called for rigorous voters’ education to reduce the number of void votes in the forthcoming general elections.

He made the call yesterday when the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign train berthed at Warri South Local Government Area of the state.

According to Dr. Uduaghan, the fixing of all the national elections in one day and that of the state elections on another day may confuse unenlightened voters.

He reiterated that voters deserved to know how to vote well ahead of the elections to avoid situations where there will be mix up of votes that could lead to void votes.

“Voters education is very necessary for prospective voters to know how to vote,” Governor Uduaghan said.

The Governor introduced all the candidates of PDP in the general elections to the crowd that gathered at the Warri Township Stadium for the rally, calling for the re-election of President Goodluck Jonathan and the election of Senator Ifeanyi Okowa as Governor of Delta State.

He emphasised that all the candidates of the PDP should be voted for in the general elections for the gains of democracy to be sustained.

Senator Okowa in his speech promised to run an all inclusive government where Deltans will be consulted and be well informed about government activities.

He canvassed the votes of the people, describing PDP as the most consistent political party in Nigeria with well defined programmes.

Governor Uduaghan had earlier introduced all the candidates of the PDP in the general elections to the Olu of Warri, Ogiame Atuwatse II, who gave them his royal blessings.

A former Minister of State, Defence, Dr Roland Oritsejafor, speaking at the palace, described Dr. Okowa as a credible candidate.

“This party, PDP has always been in government and the governorship flag bearer has shown integrity, our expectation is very high and we know his predecessors have laid a foundation which will make him take Delta to greater heights,” he said.

Dr. Okowa promised the monarch that his administration would consolidate on peace and unity of Delta State, asserting: “God is with us in this project, we thank you for receiving us.”
