He emphasized that there is a need to maintain and sustain the peace Governor Emmanuel has brought into the state beyond 2023, by going out enmassed to register for the PVCs and also use the E-registration platform of the PDP to register ahead of the party primaries and general election, so as to vote Governor Emmanuel’s choice of successor.

They enumerated juicy projects and infrastructures completed and ongoing in the local government, noting that all the projects will be completed before the expiration of the Governor’s tenure in 2023, hence the reason they should mobilize for PVC registration and also sensitize people to support the completion agenda and succession plan of the Governor.
