The Governor of Delta State, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, on Saturday hit the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) over criticism in the state affairs.

He said that whatever their criticism may be, the state is doing well, adding that the opposition party should first go and put their house in order.

Okowa stated this after the consensus Congress of the new state PDP Executives in Asaba, the state capital.

The tenure of the Kingsley Esiso-led state executive council of the PDP had expired in May, but due to the outbreak of the COVID-19, the exercise could not be conducted.

Esiso emerged after a consensus arrangement purportedly championed by Governor Okowa.

A majority of the 39-member executive council were returned unopposed due to the consensus arrangement.

Addressing the party faithful and the newly-elected party officials, Gov Okowa urged them not to be distracted by the antics of opposition parties, noting that the consensus arrangement showed that the PDP was very united in the state.

In his acceptance speech, Esiso thanked Ibori and other party leaders particularly in Delta Central, for the role they played to ensure he re-emerged as State Chairman.

Esiso appealed to aspirants for the 2023 elections to exercise restraints and avoid distracting the present administration.

He told opposition political parties to forget about winning the state in 2023, describing the PDP as a moving train that will crush any party that stood on its way for the 2023 elections.
