By-Election: Contestant urges supporters to embrace peace, unity for PDP victory


Abuja, Feb. 9, 2022 (NAN) Mr Godwin Offiono, a constant in the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) primary election for the Feb 26, Ogoja/Yala Federal Constituency by-election has sued for peace and solicited support for the party’s candidate in the election.


Offiono made the appeal while briefing newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja.


Offiono who contested and lost to Mike Usibe who emerged as PDP flag bearer urged members of the party to embrace peace and unite for the party’s victory in the by-election.


“We will remain one and committed to the party and its decision.


“Team Godwin Offion will synergise with notable groups and structures of the Party to ensure that significant victory is recorded during the by-election. he said


Offion wished all supporters who in the course of the primary election, sustained various degrees of injuries, a speedy recovery and appealed to them to forgive, in the interest of the party.


According to him, PDP presents itself as a service where impunity, God-fatherism, injustice and all other forms of manipulation and vices will not raise their ugly heads.




“The trying moments, hunger and pain from the primary election is almost becoming a thing of the past where our elders, leaders, supporters, and admirers are calming their nerves” he said.


Offiono noted thhat people who validate the supremacy of PDP, have “sheath their swords” and embraced peace and unity for the interest of the party.


“We therefore give credence to the Party’s supremacy to ensure the growth and development of the Party.”(NAN)
