Delta closes schools for PDP campaign rally

The Delta State Government stopped all of the schools in Asaba, the state capital, on Monday in anticipation of the People's Democratic Party's presidential campaign rally, which was scheduled to take place in the state on Tuesday.

The PDP presidential candidate visited Asaba on Tuesday, thus school officials all around the state have told their kids to stay at home.

Rose Ezewu, the state's commissioner of secondary education, declined to make any phone-based comments.

Asaba has seen an increase in security personnel in preparation for the visit, but the city has also changed, particularly around Stephen Keshi Stadium, the location of the presidential rally and the freshly constructed Koka fly-over.

People were tired of the All Progressives Congress' mismanagement of the federal government, according to Ifeanyi Okowa, governor of Delta State and vice presidential candidate for the party.

Soon after seeing the Stephen Keshi Stadium's preparations, Okowa asserted that the PDP would provide Nigerians with the inclusive and goal-oriented leadership that the nation sorely needs.

He said, “The warm reception and support PDP had across the country showed that Nigerians had become optimistic about the need for positive change.

“The party is determined to rescue the nation and deliver good governance to the people. The party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, an experienced politician, knows the path to Nigeria’s recovery. I will work with him and other citizens to recover, reset and rebuild the country.

“Nigerians are already tired of the APC-led government and we are very much aware of what the situation is in this country.”

Okowa said he was pleased with the venue and was confident the party’s rally on Tuesday (today) would be a huge success.
