Emerhor-led Delta APC recruits 4, 000 vote canvassers for Buhari’s re-election
The leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State, under the leadership of Chief O’tega Emerhor, has recruited and ready to inaugurate 4,000 vote canvassers for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The inauguration of the vote canvassers from 270 wards across the state, as gathered, will be inaugurated on Saturday, February 9th in Asaba as part of the effort towards securing another four-year term for President Buhari.
The leader of Delta APC, adjudged the mainstream APC in the state, Chief Emerhor, in a statement, said the canvassers would be expected to garner 400,000 votes, that is, 100 votes per canvasser, for the APC presidential candidate.
He said the inauguration would witness the provision of 10 Buhari-branded buses each for an aggressive campaign at the 10 federal constituencies of the state.
He added that the canvassers and leaders will continue their job on election day, February 16th in the form of monitoring and protection of the votes of Deltans for President Buhari.
Emerhor averred that in spite of the no-love-lost situation of the party in recent times, the party is ready to ensure the re-election of President Buhari for another four years.
“I write to thank you and to congratulate you for your steadfastness in the face of the challenges, Delta APC has faced since the contentious party Congresses and Primaries.
As you are aware, to resolve the issues that arose therefrom, there are ongoing court cases.
“Also, I can report that we are at a point of breakthrough in the reconciliation talks that have been ongoing, and God willing, a unity agreement may be signed before the fast-approaching elections!
“However, while we are still at this stage, one area where Delta APC have unity of purpose is that Delta must contribute to getting President Buhari to get four more years in office.
To this end, I have been working assiduously with our party structure ably led by Chief Cyril Ogodo to ensure that we, the Mainstream of the party in Delta State contribute our own quota to getting votes out towards giving our dear President another four years in office.
“I’m, therefore, happy to announce to you that working with our party structure, we are organising a conference for the inaugural and commissioning of 4000 canvassers for a door to door campaign program in Delta State for the re-election of President Mohammadu Buhari.
“This Conference is slated for Saturday, February 9th, commencing 8 am at Grand Hotel, Asaba.
“The aim is to train a 4, 000 strong force of Canvassers and equip them with materials (Buhari Flyers, posters etc) to proceed on a door to door campaign in the 270 wards of Delta State.
“Each Canvasser shall be charged to bring in a minimum of 100 votes.
“The 4000 Canvassers are therefore expected to get out a minimum of 400,000 votes for our President.
“This will be in addition to the expected efforts of our other party members and leaders.
“The Canvassers shall commence work on February 10th and shall canvass intensely for six days.
“The Canvassers shall be supported by 10 Buhari branded campaign vehicles mounted with loud blaring speakers also distributing Flyers and Posters.
“The vehicles shall operate one each, in the 10 Federal Constituencies in the State. These vehicles have been contributed to the campaign programme and shall also be launched at the Conference.
“I write to commend all Mainstream party members and leaders to aggressively support this effort by gracing the Conference and helping to monitor and supervising the Canvassers in order for us to achieve our target number of votes for our President.
“The work of the Canvassers and leaders shall continue on election day February 16th in the form of monitoring and protection of the votes of Deltans for Mr President,” the Delta APC leader disclosed.
