Governor of Delta State, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa, his two predecessors, Chief James Onanefe Ibori and Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, were seen busy boosting the morals of Delta Delegates to the 2021 national convention in Abuja.
The three leaders were in a lighter mood, interacting freely with delegates and other leaders of the party from the three senatorial districts. The photo sessions lasted for hours as delegates scrambled to pose with His Excellencies; Gov Okowa, Chief Ibori and Dr Uduaghan.
The state arena at the convention was colourful as all Delegates were decked in branded PDP attires.
