He described the PDP as the only viable and potent political party in the state with the capacity of unseating the incompetent APC-led administration.
In his welcome remarks, the PDP Ward Chairman, Mr Noah Yesufu described Idakwo as an astute politician and business man promising to carry him along in all activities of the party at the ward level.
