The governor’s felicitation is contained in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Olisa Ifeajika, in Asaba.
He said that Secondus, as an astute politician, had elevated the profile of PDP and added value to its integrity.
Okowa commended the national chairman for his contribution to the growth and development of the party and democracy in Nigeria.
He recalled that Secondus played a significant role in stabilising the PDP since it lost power at the centre in 2015.
According to him, Secondus deserves all the accolades, as he has led the biggest opposition party in Africa well since he assumed leadership in December 2017.
He said that Secondus’ selfless service to the PDP and country as an opposition leader as well as his many accomplishments in personal and public life “readily come to mind as he celebrates his 66th birth anniversary”.
“Your Excellency, our National Chairman, you have played significant roles in the growth and development of the nation as leader of the biggest opposition party in Africa and we can’t thank you enough for your great achievements.
“On behalf of my family, the government and people of Delta, I congratulate His Excellency, the National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, as he celebrates his 66th birth anniversary.
“It is with pleasure that I and members of our great party in Delta join your family, friends and well-wishers in thanking Almighty God for His continued mercy, protection and provision for you in the past 66 years.
“As you celebrate this day, it is my prayer and that of our members that God will continue to bless you with good health, wisdom and many more years in the service of His people and nation,” Okowa said. (NAN)
