Similarly, Mr Uzodinma will be in charge of the south-east, while Messers Sanwo Olu and Otu will coordinate the south-west and south-south activities of the party.

“We are here to mobilise the demand of the people and to form an agenda for the party and the government. We also need to disseminate information on what the government is doing to the people.

“To do that, we have narrowed down our activities to geopolitical zones. So, in all this, there must be a governor who will oversee, motivate, and encourage all within that zone. That is the only way that we can move forward quickly.

“Therefore, we need you [newly inaugurated coordinators)] to mobilise other governors of the zones to effectively and physically participate in party activities within and outside the zone.
