The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has expressed optimism that the party will win the 2023 general election with the choice of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State as the running mate of the party’s presidential candidate, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.

The Chairman of Lagos PDP, Philip Aivoji, according to a statement on Thursday, disclosed this during a chat with journalists at the party’s secretariat in Ikeja, Lagos.

Aivoji described Okowa as a man of integrity with much-needed experience having served as a senator and two terms as governor of Delta State, adding that he was a trusted and tested leader.

He said, “Governor Okowa’s choice would boost the PDP’s electoral strength in the entire southern region of the country in the forthcoming 2023 general election, and by the grace of the Almighty God, we are going to deliver the country from the maladministration of the APC.

“This is not by our power or might, but we trust in God that with the party’s choice of former Vice President Atiku and Governor Okowa, we will win the 2023 general election by a landslide.”
