“In line with the party’s constitution, elections were conducted in designated centres at each of the three senatorial districts in the state.

According to Jacobs, Okonkwo appreciated members of the party for electing him as the candidate of the party.

Jacob said that if elected as governor, Okonkwo promised to turn around the economy of the state, create employment, rebuild state infrastructure and ensure security of lives and property in the state.
