FastNews reports that Hilda Dokubo, a popular Nollywood actress and Labour Party (LP) candidate for Rivers’ Akuku-Toru/Asari-Toru Federal Constituency seat, believes the party will take over the state in 2023.
Dokubo stated this at the party’s stakeholders meeting on Thursday in Port Harcourt, in response to allegations made by some individuals that the party lacked a viable structure to win the state election in 2023.
She said that the meeting was aimed at positioning the party for victory at the 2023 general election.
“Individuals are the structures of every political party and we have our teaming supporters here in the state,” Dokubo said.
Mr Etete Ekeneoriono, the party’s candidate for Andoni State Constituency seat, advised youths in rural communities to participate in the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) in order to beat the July 31 deadline
Ekeneoriono also urged residents of fishing communities in Andoni Local Area (LGA) of the state to utilise their voting power in 2023 for a better Nigeria.
He said that the Permanent Voters Card (PVC) was the most powerful instrument in the country’s electoral system, hence the need to utilise the remaining days to get registered.
“The party has engaged in wide voter sensitisation tagged “Get Your PVC” in all parts of the state especially in rural communities.
“The 2023 election is about the future of youths and our dear country; the only instrument available to us as we work toward rebranding the country is our PVCs,” Ekeneoriono said.
