2019: Delta Ex-SSG, Macaulay Canvasses Mass Support For Atiku, Okowa


Immediate past Secretary to Delta State Government, (SSG), Mr. Ovuozourie Macaulay, has called for massive support for former vice president and the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, ahead of the 2019 general elections.

According to Macaulay, who is known for mobilization, the pedigrees of the Presidential and Vice Presidential aspirants of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi, speak volume of their prospects for Nigeria, hence, Nigerians should give them their total support.

The immediate past SSG, who made the call Saturday, while played host to three political groups under his political family, in his Owhelogbo country home, Isoko North local government area of the state, stressed the need for knitted romance between the PDP faithful, political groups and the electorates, especially in time like this, adding that time was fast running out.

Macaulay who also described governor Ifeanyi Okowa as best thing that has ever happened to Delta state, asserted that Deltans have so much to gain with the reelection of Okowa in 2019, hence they can only afford to support him with their votes.

Macaulay, a veteran labour leader and political strategist, while condemning electoral violence in its entirety ahead of the election, commended the groups which included, Macaulay Political Vanguard (MPV), Isoko Grassroot Movement (IGM), and Isoko Development Forum (IDF) for their commitment to the political family as well as the development of Isoko nation.

“Since the primary elections, we have not had time to sit like this as a family. The future is greater. We must be cautious with our actions today. Time is no longer on our side. Romance the electorates, make friends with them. Tell them the good news of Senator Ifeanyi Okowa and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar. Tell them the news about the party. So that inter party cooperation and support can be achieved easily during elections.”

Senior Special Assistant to Governor, Emmanuel Edevor, former House of Assembly Aspirant, Mike Ogwah and Senior Special Assistant to Governor (Political), Daniel Tutumor encouraged the members to remain steadfast with the groups.

In their various responses, Harryman Okoro, MPV chairman, Sunday Omonakome, IDF chairman, Sunny Elueni, IGM chairman, commended the grand patron, Ovuozourie Macaulay for his sterling leadership quality.

Several members of the groups commended the grand patron for his patience and leadership style even as they appealed to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to return to the various ward to continue the distribution of Permanent Voter Cards (PVC).
