Newly appointed Delta South People Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman Chief Dr. Julius Takeme has said that his mandate is to deliver victory for PDP from Presidency to the Councillors in 2023 at all cost.
Chief Takeme who was the immediate past commissioner of Uban development and Renewal disclosed today while addressing journalists during his formal resumption of office at the Delta South PDP secretariat in Warri, said ‘‘ I am very grateful for the leadership of the party for giving me the PDP Delta South leadership.
”My mandate is clear from the Party to deliver victory from Presidency to the Councillors at ward level. I want to assure the party that I will not disappoint them in this responsibility. We have done it before and together we will do it again’’ he said
Asked if not too early talking about 2023 in 2019, he said ‘’ No, no, it is not early, PDP starts preparation early unlike other political parties that start only when INEC announces election time table. Early preparation is our secret. That is our winning strategy. You know PDP is a party that makes preparation early and that is what you see the leadership of the party doing by appointing key personalities in key positions ahead of next elections’’ he said.
He called for the cooperation of all stakeholders in the state to work together with the state governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa and the party’s leadership to always bring victory for the party.
