Thank you PDP
The much awaited PDP guber primary is come and gone. A winner has emerged and the PDP is set for the 2015 governorship election in Delta State.
We give kudos to all that participated in the governorship race for their maturity and love for peace. Throughout the period of consultations and campaigns by the various aspirants, there was no recorded case of violent confrontation between any of the aspirants. They played the game according to rules. No record of assassination and in their movements day and night, the mercy of God was around all aspirants. There was no case of death by accident; we give God the glory for His mercy and hand of protection to all the aspirants.
During the conduct of the guber primary election all aspirants also displayed maturity in their conduct. The election was conducted in a free and fair manner, at least, within the view and assessment of the lay man. We thank the PDP officials who saw to this transparency.
We must not fail to thank the supporters of the various aspirants who also displayed maturity in observing the proceedings of the primary poll and accepting the results as they were announced. Most especially, we want to thank Rt. Hon. Victor Ochei who are learnt, drove to the house of Senator Ifeanyi Okowa the next day morning to congratulate him for his victory. We encourage this gesture and advise others to emulate this type of political maturity.
Indeed, we thank Senator Ifeanyi Okowa who on Tuesday, Dec. 9, put a call through to Olorogun David Edevbie who was his major rival at the polls and exchanged pleasantries with him. That is how it should be done.
We will not hesitate to thank Olorogun David Edevbie for his mien after the election and for picking the calls of Senator Ifeanyi Okowa and wishing him success at the general election next year. What a clean gentleman? Again we say that is how it should be.
We call on politicians of other parties as well as the PDP leadership and members to maintain this rare maturity in political contest. Politics should not be a do or die affair and this, the PDP in Delta has displayed before, during and after the guber primary polls.
For displaying this level of maturity all actors in the game earned laurels of peace and Delta State won it all.
Continue in this path and by the grace of God Delta shall be better for it all. Thank you PDP.
