Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, the vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says the party will secure a landslide victory in the 2023 presidential election.

He spoke when he commissioned the campaign office of the PDP in Jos on Saturday.

“We are working unitedly, carrying everybody along, and we are going to have a landslide victory in Plateau state and beyond,” he said.

Mr Okowa charged the PDP leadership in Plateau to move their campaigns to the grassroots, wards and units as those are where the votes are.

He said the party would get it right if the leadership began to mobilise early while encouraging the party faithful to remain firm and not to lose hope in the face of challenges.

He added that if voted into office, the party would give Nigerians freedom, restore hope, deliver a secure Nigeria and take people out of poverty.

Mr Okowa, who regretted that university students had to stay home for months, said that the PDP government would prioritise education.

He said the PDP government, if voted into office, would encourage the private sector to create jobs for Nigerians.

He added that their government would give more power to states as they were closer to the grassroots, to grow the people and bring the country back on track.

In a remark, Istifanus Gyang representing Plateau North, who described Okowa as a man of peace, said that the party would do its best to deliver Plateau in the 2023 elections.
