The chairman of the PDP national convention accreditation committee and governor of Delta, Sen. Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, on Tuesday assured that the committee will be guided by high level of integrity in the accreditation of delegates for the national convention.
Addressing newsmen at the party secretariat in Abuja, Okowa said the accreditation committee would ensure that only eligible voters are allowed to participate in the exercise.
While noting the critical role the committee has to play in the convention, the governor said “we do realise that if we get the process of accreditation right, we will largely have gotten the convention right. And we do not pray that we get it wrong.”
He added: “Saturday is very critical to all of us. We need to understand our role, we need to come in early and hope that every material that will be needed will be available at that point in time.
“And also hoping that the committees we will be collaborating with would have also put everything in place like the security committee, transport committee, accommodation and venue committee, having put all these things in place, will now be reassured that the rest of the work is what we have to do, to ensure an accreditation process that is integrity base.
“I used the word integrity because is very important to us and we don’t want to get into the convention venue to see persons coming in to vote, who ordinarily shouldn’t have been in the position to cast their votes. That will definitely discredit us.”
While urging the committee members to work with open minds, Okowa further admonished: “If you want to work you must be ready to work with a sincere heart. We must do things in the way it ought to be. And is going to be a lot of commitment to our party. It is not about self-gain, this is not a presidential election, it is a party election. So whatever we are going to do should be part of our commitment to the party and to ensure that our party stands and remain strong,” he said.
