The National Vice-Chairman, South-south of the party, Dr. Cairo Ojugbo, made this known in an interview with journalists at the party’s secretariat in Abuja.
"We will talk to them; we will campaign to APC members in Rivers and Edo.
"We shall work extra hard by talking to our brothers in other political parties in the states to come and join this train that is heading Nigeria to right direction,’’ he said.
Ojugbo added that the PDP in the zone planned to deliver the electorate to the party by ensuring that it won all votes in the 2015 general elections.
"We shall go to every nook and crannies in the south-south; we will work 24 hours in the tradition of the PDP.
"We will work to ensure that we do not loose any seat that is on the card to be contested for.
"We will campaign and beg our brothers even in the other parties to cooperate with us because this is a south south agenda.’’
He added that the zone was determined to ensure the re-election of President Jonathan in 2015 to bring peace to the zone and the country generally.
Ojugbo said that the 4 million signatures received by the Transformation Ambassador (TAN) at its Port Harcut rally, from those who wanted President Jonathan re-elected, was an attestation to the determination of people of the zone.
He said the zone was convinced that President Jonathan had done well in all sectors of the country`s economy and should be re-elected.
"We are convinced that the transformation agenda is getting Nigeria out of the woods and that in spite of the country`s security challenges, the president is riding on.’’
He said for the country to continue moving forward, there was need to give President Jonathan more time to complete his transformation agenda.
Ojubgo added that though there may be some divisions amongst politicians in the zone, they would all speak with one voice at the right time.
He appealed to politicians in the zone to cooperate towards the re-election of President Jonathan in 2015.
He called on the people to support the state governor for zoning the 2015 Delta governorship seat to the northern senatorial district.
He said that the party`s structure in the state was massive enough to convince everybody to come on board.
Ojugbo said that PDP was the only part that observed the rule of law.
