The Delta State Governorship candidate of the People’s Redemption Party, PRP, CHIEF IMMANUEL EDIJALA has unveiled his blueprint and equally announced Bishop Glory Ndidi Umerah as running mate for the 2023 general election on Wednesday.
The PRP candidate revealed his running mate Bishop Glory Ndidi Umerah at a press conference in Warri on Wednesday.
Edijala said that he decided to choose Bishop Umerah as running mate due to her outstanding track record and pedigree.
The statement reads’ “After a careful search for a worthy running mate to fly the flag of my Party, the People’s Redemption Party (PRP), and with due consideration of who will add value and best service in that capacity, I have chosen Bishop Glory Ndidi Umerah as my Deputy.
“She was born on the 19th of May, 1966 and hails from Ibusa, Oshimili North Local Government Area of Delta State. She is a Clergy woman, Bishop of the Living Word Faith Fellowship Centre, Kubwa, Abuja and founder of Radiant Women Foundation. I hereby attach her robust resume for the public to assess her pedigree.
“Thus, I am highly motivated to use my experience in advocacy to effectively make things better for our people. By our people, I mean every legal person resident in Delta State. I promise to unify our State and break the barriers of disunity created by the wolves in sheep’s clothing and ethnic bigots who have been in the corridors of power since 1999.
” I want to use my experience in politics and business to improve the livelihoods and wellbeing of our people, our children and children yet unborn. There is no gainsaying that due to the poor state of the Nigerian economy, the majority of Nigerians are ensnared in poverty and living in misery with a growing army of unemployed youth channelling their youthful energy to perpetrate crimes and wreaking havoc everywhere. I will work to tenaciously defend our God-given inalienable rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
However, the PRP candidate prioritized infrastructure, empowerment, Education, security, wealth creation, and implementation of minimum wage as part of his blueprint to build a new Delta when elected.
