Delta State Governor, Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa, Friday said the “change mantra” being chorused by the All Progressives Congress is deceptive.

He, therefore, begged Deltans not to allow anyone deceive them.

Governor Okowa made the assertion while receiving decampees from the APC to the People’s Democratic Party, PDP at the party’s Delta South Senatorial rally in Warri.
“Nobody should deceive you. The change mantra is deception,” he warned.

Governor Okowa, who was represented by his Deputy, Barr. Kingsley Otuaro, said, “We will follow the PDP because the PDP knows the road. Okowa knows the road.”
He welcomed the decampees and thanked them for making the wisest decision stressing, “You are entitled to the rights and privileges like every other member in the party.

“Let us work together and build the PDP and deliver our Governor for second term.”
Earlier, the Delta State PDP Chairman, Barr. Kingsley Esiso who thanked the decampees for joining the party said,” There is no new comer. You’re entitled to the rights and privileges like every other member. ”

Esiso also appealed to party faithful and Deltans to arm themselves with their Permanent Voter Cards so as to enable them vote all the party’s candidates in the 2019 elections.

Among those who dumped the APC included, former Commissioner in Delta State, Hon. Mitsan Ukubenyinje.
Also, Chief Afro Biukeme, former governorship aspirant of the Merger Peoples Progressives Party, MPPP and the Delta State Chairman of the Young Democratic Party, YDP Prince Marvin Ekrika and his executive were among others who also joined the PDP today.
