Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, has revealed that set up his cabinet was a tough call for him, saying at a point he did not know who to appoint or not into his cabinet.
Okowa attributed the difficult decision to the failure of the People Democratic Party (PDP) in the last elections at the national level, which constrained the appointment space for the party, forcing everyone who had worked for the party even at federal level to come back to the state to seek appointment.
The governor, who disclosed this at the PDP stakeholders meeting Delta State chapter in Asaba, said: “At a point I stopped entering social media because of insult. Some said I appointed old men and old women, I re-cycled the old politicians why some said I appointed corrupt persons.”
Okowa charged all PDP faithful to be disciplined and respect party supremacy by following its directives and guidelines.
In his address, the state PDP chairman, Chief Edwin Uzor, stressed that the party PDP had realized what led to its fall, especially at the centre, noting that this is the time to go back to the drawing board to re-strategise on how to reclaim power from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) come 2019.
The chairman explained that the party would soon constitute a high-power committee to reconcile all aggrieved members in the state, with a firm promise to enthrone internal democracy in the running of PDP affairs.
“It is pertinent to point out, at this juncture, that the High Chief Raymond Dokpesi led e-registration committee set up by the National Working Committee of our great party under the able leadership of the Acting National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, has concluded a pilot exercise in Edo State and will soon release a time table for exercise in other states including Delta,” he noted.
