ASABA--DELTA State Commissioner for Information, Mr Chike Ogeah, yesterday, said that Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan was committed to the emergence of an Anioma indigene as his successor in the February 28 poll.
Ogeah, in an interactive session with journalists, said the state's Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate in the governorship election, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, was carrying a pan-Delta mandate and an Anioma mandate.
Noting that the PDP was still intact after the primary election, even though a few persons had decamped to contest election in other political parties, Ogeah said a good number of those that contested the governorship primaries and lost were still in the party working for its victory.
Saying that government was a continuum, he expressed optimism that the PDP would continue to rule the state because it has done well.
He added that the state would improve tremendously if Dr Okowa was elected and given eight years.
According to him, the state was predominantly a PDP State, adding that the defection of some of its members has not breached peace in the state.
