In a strategic move to return power to the people as against imposition of executives during the recent Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, local government and ward congresses, members of PDP Isoko South Local Government Area of Delta State, under the auspices of Save Isoko South PDP Group, yesterday, urged the state governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, to revisit the political crisis in the council.
The governor was also urged to do justice to the issues raised to avoid the disintegration of the party in Isoko South, just as they resolved to ensure that majority of the residents in the council return to PDP.
The crucial meeting held in Isoko South council, had Prof. Ekoko Abednigo, Chief Etaloku, Sir. M. Sieto, Chief Dickson Egbare, Chief Obi Eneruvie, Chief Okiyo, Chief Otolo, Chief Eriri, Chief Igogo, Mr. Vantus Ogboghro, Chief Ovririe, Chief Urhobo and several other leaders from different wards in attendance and deliberated on the well being and unity of PDP members in Isoko South. The group condemned the alleged imposition during the last PDP ward and council executives congresses.
The group, whose aim is to woe aggrieved members of PDP back to the party, warned that they will be forced to take a decision if nothing was done on the issue.
Addressing newsmen after the meeting, Co-ordinator of the group, Chief Dickson Egbare, said: “When you look at the meeting, you will understand that something is wrong from the recent PDP congress held in Isoko South council. We believe in the ideology of the party and remain one, so we have decided to come together and call on the government led by Governor Okowa, who is the most senior leader of the party to quickly intervene.
“This call was made several months ago but no meaningful intervention had taken place. But we still decided to come together to talk to the people on how they can be steadfast and remain loyal to the party and Governor Okowa.”
So our aim is to bring together all members back on track and convince them to remain in the party, but if nothing is done, then we will take a decision that will not be revealed for now.”
