The party said the militarization approach of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) during election will be resisted by the people by kicking out Gov. Yahaya Bello from office through ballot.
Comrade Fidelis, from Igalamela/Odolu Local Government has given the assurances that the party would bounce back in November.
He is contesting in the party’s congress billed for next month where he hopes to win and take over the leadership of the party in the State.
The aspirant, who spoke at the PDP secretariat in Lokoja on Tuesday when he came to declare his intention to vie for the position, said the party was overwhelmed by militancy, thuggery and rigging deployed by the ruling APC in the last general election.
He said to achieve that feat is not going to be a tea party but it would happen through hard work .
“It is an obvious fact that the last election was militarised. I also want to say that the PDP did not have someone who could stand and fight for them.
“If I become the party’s chairman, I will fill in that gap and fight for the party, stand for the party and I will not allow anybody to bring in thugs to chase our people away, kill and maim them.”
According to him, there is nothing enticing him other than just service.
