The national chairman of the party is confident that Deltans are in support of the Jonathan and Sambo bid. This is corroborated by the PDP governorship flag bearer in delta state.

The president, who spoke in an official language in the Niger delta, promised to improve the maritime sector in the state.

His wife, Patience Jonathan, wooed the women and youth to cast their votes for the PDP.

Music artistes and members of the Nollywood were also at the venue to throw their weight behind President Jonathan and his Vice for another term in office.

They say the entertainment sector had had 100 per cent improvement since the Jonathan administration kicked off.
