As Nigeria gears up for the 2023 general elections, the race for the Presidency and Vice-Presidency of the country is heating up. Amongst all the running mates to the various Presidential candidates, one candidate stands out as the most prepared and experienced: Ifeanyi Okowa, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Vice-Presidential candidate.
With over three decades of experience in government, Okowa is a proven leader with the skills and knowledge needed to help transform Nigeria.
Governor Okowa’s vast experience and expertise make him a well-rounded and versatile leader, capable of handling the responsibilities of the Vice-Presidency of Nigeria. His experience ranges from his time as a former Secretary and Chairman of the Ika North East Local Government Council to his current role as the Executive Governor of Delta State. He has also held various positions in government, including Delta State Commissioner for Agriculture and Natural Resources, Water Resources Development, and Health. Between 2011 and 2015, he served as the Senator representing Delta North Senatorial district in the National Assembly, where he spearheaded the passage of the National Healthcare Act.
What sets Governor Okowa apart is his ability to govern at the grassroots level, manage critical sectors of the economy, initiate legislation, and lead policy initiatives. His administrative, executive, legislative, and governance experience is unmatched by any other candidate, making him the most qualified for the position of Vice-President of Nigeria.
As Vice-President, Okowa’s expertise and skills will be essential in representing Nigeria on the international stage, promoting peace and stability, and negotiating diplomatic agreements. He will also help bridge the gap between different groups, promote unity and understanding, and create a more cohesive and prosperous society.
Governor Okowa’s passion for service and commitment to the Nigerian people is unparalleled. His service will undoubtedly lead to the growth and development of Nigeria, inspiring confidence and trust in the government and leading to greater collaboration and progress. His leadership and vision for Nigeria’s future have already transformed Delta State into a thriving economy with sustainable development.
Nigeria needs leaders with experience, vision, and a commitment to excellence. Governor Ifeanyi Okowa is the ideal individual to take on the responsibilities of the Vice-Presidency of Nigeria under a President Atiku Abubakar administration. With his experience and qualifications, he is the most prepared and experienced Vice-Presidential candidate, capable of contributing to Nigeria’s development and progress.
As we head into the 2023 general elections, for my family and I, we will rally behind Atiku Abubakar and Ifeanyi Okowa, and together, we can build a brighter future for Nigeria.
