Debate: Okowa addressed issues, PDP lauds Delta gov

Director of Strategic Communications of the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Council, Chief Dele Momodu, has described the performance of the party’s vice-presidential candidate, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, as top notch and very presidential.

The Punch had reported that presidential debate held among candidates of the PDP (Atiku Abubakar represented by Okowa), Labour Party Peter Obi), New Nigeria Peoples Party (Rabiu Kwankwaso) and the Peoples Redemption Party (Kola Abiola), at the presidential town hall series in Abuja on Sunday, organised by the Centre for Democracy and Development and Arise Television.

Momodu noted that the VP candidate demonstrated excellent knowledge of the Akitu/Okowa programs and reeled them out while proffering strategic answers to questions thrown at him by the panelists.

“We are lucky to have Governor Okowa as our VP candidate and Nigerians can now see why Atiku picked him as his running mate. It was not a fluke.

“He not only sold our recovery plan, he gave practical solutions to issues. You can see how he comported himself to the admiration of Nigerians when some supporters of other parties became virulent. We also saw how he reminded the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, former Governor Peter Obi that up until May, he was a member and presidential aspirant of the PDP.

“Ours is a campaign to recover Nigeria and at every opportunity, we do not forget to sell this to Nigerians. This was what Dr Okowa did yesterday. We look forward to other engaging sessions like this and we at the PDP are ready. We don’t shy away from debates unlike others,” Momodu said.

Bola Tinubu, was absent at the debate and without any representation.
