Bayelsa Deputy, charges support groups to spotlight prosperity government’s achievements

Bayelsa State Deputy Governor, Senator Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo, has
called on the various support groups and organizations of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)                        in the state to anchor their campaigns on the achievements of the prosperity government.

Senator Ewhrudjakpo gave the advice while granting audience
separately to the leadership of the Christian Community Partners (CCP),
Bayelsa Chapter and the Diri/Law Grassroots Movement in Government
House, Yenagoa.

Addressing members of the CCP, the Deputy Governor remarked that
as an NGO that has taken the responsibility to galvanize support for the
PDP at all levels, it should match its actions with set objectives to win
the trust of the party and government.

According to him, the only way the group can achieve this is by being
purpose-driven and make the landmark achievements of the Governor
Diri-led PDP administration in Bayelsa the centre of their engagements
with the electorate.

Senator Ewhrudjakpo equally urged the Diri/Law Grassroots Movement
to have no other motive than working for the victory of the party in the
impending elections as its sole agenda.

While encouraging the effective utilization of the social media in
marketing the PDP, he, however, advised them to distinguish themselves
from support groups of other political parties by avoiding the use of
immoderate language.

Senator Ewhrudjakpo assured both groups of support, adding that the
Special Adviser on Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) would be
directed to liaise with them to ensure they achieve their set objectives.

Briefing the Deputy Governor earlier, the State Coordinator of the
Christian Community Partners, Reverend Ezekiel Oghenovo, disclosed
that the main goal of the organization was to partner the PDP to ensure
its victory at all levels.

Revewend Oghenovo said the CCP was a nationwide movement with a
mandate to mobilize the Christian community across Nigeria to vote
massively for all PDP flag bearers in the general elections.

In their joint presentation, the state coordinator of the Diri/Law
Grassroots Movement, Comrade Sataria Ebiegberi, and the secretary,
Mr. Abila Overcomer, explained that the organization was formed
primarily to consolidate grassroots support for the re-election of
Governor Douye Diri, and his deputy, Senator Ewhrudjakpo.

They noted that their decision was informed by the far-reaching strides
made by the administration in human and infrastructural development in
less than three years in office, adding that their chief objective was to
reach all segments of the state with the gospel of prosperity.
