Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has thanked Atiku Abubakar for picking him as his running mate, noting that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) needs to return to power.
The Delta State leader said this on Thursday while accepting his nomination to be Atiku’s running mate in next year’s presidential poll.
“While thanking you, sir, I do understand that there is a great work that is ahead of us but I know that God has designed this to be and that by the special grace of God, we would all work hard to ensure victory for the party,” Senator Okowa said in his acceptance speech.
Okowa, who said there is work ahead for members of the party, called on them to work collectively.
“There is no doubt that there is a great work ahead of each and every one of us. The build-back process is going to be collective and we are trusting that all our party members will want to be part of that story at the end of the day,” he said.
