In his words: “PDP build some of us so whatever we have to do for the party, we must give back to the party. 

“I see this meeting as a major reconcilliatory gathering or meeting for the PDP.  I want to say this to everyone here that power belong only to God. I know my family before I was made Governor of Delta State by God. I have also tasted power and it was God that did it. We must thank God that we have Okowa as the Vice Presidential candidate of our party at this critical time. 
“We have no option than to support him and the PDP.  We must all rally round him to give him our maximum support. I was the leader of PDP in Delta State for 8 years. I am part of the Ibori political family and I will continue to be a member of the family. There must be crises in political settings but after such, settlement comes in.
“Since Okowa became the Vice Presidential candidate of our party, nobody has heard from us, I mean Ibori, myself and James Manager. We should all work together to  deliver the PDP come 2023. 
“I know that some of us here are not sincere, I can read your minds. I have seen many things in politics. 
“I believe that we stand a chance to benefit more if we deliver candidates of our party. I am old enough to know what is right and wrong. PDP is the way out, we have to forgive ourselves and move on.
“We have a Governorship candidate, deputy, senatorial and other PDP candidates, we need to work together to deliver them. Let us come together from our voting units. We need to deliver the party. There is no doubt that PDP is the party on ground in this state. We have to take charge. 
“I am appealing that we have to let go of our differences and work together as a team. A lot has been going on, I don’t want to go into details but we must deliver our party. We must aggressively mobilise our people to vote. It is only with such that we can win elections.” Uduaghan stated.
