The Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel, has said that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, remains the only party capable of fixing the country’s myriads of economic problems.

Speaking on Tuesday, in Benin, during the official flag-off of the campaign for the Edo State PDP governorship flag bearer, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, Governor Emmanuel, who represented the South South PDP governors, said the party was ready to reclaim the state from the All Progressive Congress, APC.

He said doing so would deliver dividends of democracy and engender steady growth and development in the oil-rich region.

Emmanuel described Mr. Ize-Iyamu, who is a pastor, as a credible candidate who will reposition Edo State.

Ize-Iyamu had earlier announced a former chairman of Esan North Local Government Area, John Yakubu, as his running mate.

The campaign flag-off was witnessed by the deputy governor of Delta State, Kingsley Otuaro, who represented Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.

A former chairman of PDP Board of Trustees, Tony Anenih, the Esama of Benin, Gabriel Igbinedion, and a former foreign affairs minister, Tom Ikimi, also attended the event.

Others at the occasion include the PDP Board of Trustees Member, Jerry Gana, and the national chairman of the party, Ahmed Markafi, who was represented by Odion Ugbesia.
