Delta Speaker, Amori, others counsel politicians on unity
The members of the legislature; senators, representatives and assembly men and women as well as party leaders, commissioners, advisers, special assistants, leaders of thought, professionals, intellectuals and business executives from Delta Central on Sunday evening took giant steps toward party unity.
At a meeting of Delta Central Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders in Sapele, speaker after speaker identified unity as the basis for progress in the area.
Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon Monday Igbuya urged the leaders not to encourage or create parallel forces in the party.
“If we must make progress, it is imperative that we unite”
Igbuya who decried the hardship Nigerians are going through courtesy of the government at the federal level appealed to party faithful to hasten the demise of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State by working together.
“APC has nothing to offer. This is not the change Nigerians are looking for. The task ahead is great. It is my view and the view of party faithful that the Delta Central PDP must remain united. We need unity to defeat our enemies” he said.
In a lengthy but poetic presentation, Igbuya rejected grotesque posturing as ways of solving the country’s problems.
Igbuya while dismissing insinuations that Governor Okowa was killing DESOPADEC, urged the party at the national level to think of solutions that would solve the economic problems of the country.
“We have moved beyond the realms of rhetoric. They should focus on concrete action” he advised.
Senator Ighoyota Amori, Chief Emmanuel Aguariavwodo and other PDP leaders vowed to work together with Governor Ifeanyi Okowa and Chief Monday Igbuya to develop the state.
They praised Okowa and Igbuya for changing the content and direction of government.
They also praised the governor and the speaker for their responsiveness to the aspiration of the common man, effort towards a greater Delta State and their concept of democracy demonstrated through good governance.
Specifically, the PDP stalwarts commended Okowa for focusing on meaningful development projects.
