Mr. Mgbejume used the opportunity to advise electorate in Ika Land to endeavour to vote for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in all the elective positions in 2019 general election, emphasizing that PDP is the moving train that will surely move Delta State forward, having His Excellency Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, as the pilot.

Speaking further, the state lawmaker, informed the group that Ika Land is one, and said, “I am pleading that having agreed to work together, it will not be good that both of us will decide to go to the bush for hunting and when we get to the bush, you will tell me that my leg is like that of an antelope”. He assured members of the group that they will not regret their decision in coming to support and work with Hon. Nwokolo.
