The Delta State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Kingsley Esiso has boasted that the party would secure nothing less than 95 percent of votes cast during next year’s presidential election.
Esiso asserted that such huge support would be in honour of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa who is currently holding the vice presidential ticket of the party in the February 2023 poll.
He, therefore, urged members of the party to massively mobilise residents in the state to achieve the objective.
