The Delta State Government closed schools in Asaba, the state capital, on Monday in preparation for the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential campaign rally in the state on Tuesday.
The management of various schools in the state told their students not to resume school on Tuesday in view of the visit of the presidential candidate of the PDP in Asaba.
When contacted, the state Commissioner for Secondary Education Rose Ezewu declined comment.
However, Asaba especially Stephen Keshi Stadium the venue of the presidential rally, and the newly constructed Koka fly-over have worn new looks in preparation of the visit even as the presence of security personnel in Asaba has increased.
The vice-presidential candidate of the party and Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa, said there is an indication that Nigerians were truly tired of the inept All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government.
Okowa, who stated this at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, shortly after inspecting preparations at the facility, said that PDP would provide Nigerians with the all-inclusive and purposeful leadership that the country yearns for.

He said, “The warm reception and support PDP had across the country showed that Nigerians had become optimistic about the need for positive change.
“The party is determined to rescue the nation and deliver good governance to the people. The party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, being an experienced politician knows the path to Nigeria’s recovery and I will work with him and other citizens to recover, reset and rebuild the country.
“Nigerians are already tired if the APC-led government and we are very much aware of what the situation is in this country.”
Okowa expressed satisfaction with the arrangements at the venue stressing that the party would have a very successful rally on Tuesday (today).
