Minority leader in the House of Representatives, Ndudi Elumelu, has asked Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, governor of Delta, to contest during the 2023 presidential election.
Elumelu speaking on Saturday in Asaba, the Delta capital, during the inauguration of the Rotary Club president for the year 2021/2022 said Dr. Okowa is “endowed with the capacity and proficiencies” to serve as president.
“I must commend governor Okowa for his selfless service and sacrifices that has led to unprecedented massive infrastructural development in our dear state, as well as a better living standard for our people.
“Governor Okowa is a rare gift, not only to Delta state, but also to our nation Nigeria at large. I firmly hold that he is endowed with the capacity and proficiencies to serve our nation at the topmost level, so that he can replicate the successes recorded in our state at the national level.
“I sincerely call on him to make himself available to serve the nation again. He deserves to be the president of this country, come 2023.”
“It has never been this bad in our national history. I, therefore, beckon on all Nigerians to join hands in the collective democratic efforts to rescue our nation from the stranglehold of the APC. This is more so because there is no way our country can survive if APC is allowed to stay in office a day beyond May 29, 2023,” he said.
