The main theme of the eveent is reaffirmation of support for the intentions of  Governor Ifeanyi Okowa  as 2023 approaches, that “where ever he goes there the group will go. What ever he says that the group will believe because Okowa had transformed the state in road construction and rehabilitation, in sports development, health sector, education, peace and development, creation of jobs and skills acquisition among others in the state and we had never had it so good in the state, his fairness has sustained peace, unity and nationalism among the various ethnic nationalities in Delta.”

Speaking in the occasion, National Chairman of the group, Chief Michael Diden,  affirmed that  the group had resolved to work in unison with other groups to deliver the next governor of the state.

According to him,  because of the successes recorded by our governor, we want a governor that will follow his footsteps in 2023.

“This is very apt because we want continuity in road construction, in health development, in educational development and human capital development.

“So, we have all agreed that we need a governor in 2023 that will follow the footsteps of the people,” Esiso stated.

He announced that a mega rally of the party would take place at the Cenotaph, Asaba, on January 22, 2022.
