The 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, the Star Prince of Anioma and former member of the National Assembly is one of the most formidable political juggernauts and strategists in the state.
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 Anioma politician who from inception started the idea of Anioma Governor of Delta state, including other Anioma agenda.
As soon as the news of his appointment was broken, many had been congratulating him knowing full well the stuff he is made of and the enormous goodwill he would bring to bear in Okowa’s campaign and victory.
Nwoko is one politician in Nigeria whose support base cuts across political affiliations and inclinations; reason his appointment is seen as one of the best political calculations of the Governor.
Nwoko alongside other appointees of the state campaign council will be inaugurated tomorrow at the Government House, Asaba.
