According to Oyewosa, Governor Okowa as the Campaign Director for Alhaji Atiku in the state, Akpodoro was sure of victory for his boss, who he said will change the misfortunes of the people for the better, as the people of the Niger Delta region were ready to vote out the incumbent All Progressives Congress (APC) administration in the country.
