Ahead of the 2015 general elections holding in March and April, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Patani Local Government Area of Delta State has reconciled its differences which arose out of the December 2014 primaries.
This was made known by the Contact Committee of the State PDP Campaign Organisation at the weekend. According to Chief (Mrs.) Judith Enamuotor, who led a high powered delegation of the committee to the local government, all differences and disagreements were tabled and amicably resolved, saying the party now stands a better chance of sweeping the polls in the coming elections.
A section of the party which felt short-changed by the outcome of the State House Assembly primaries which threw up Mr. Timi Tonye as the flagbearer had threatened to remain in the party but work against its success at the forthcoming polls. Their grouse was that the man who won the primaries on ground, Rt. Hon. Basil Ganagana, was denied the ticket and that the decision effectively ended the hope of over 3,000 people he caters for monthly. Besides, it also altered the political equation in Patani by making both the Council Chairman and House of Assembly candidate to come from Patani North, leaving Patani South without anything.
Chief Enamuotor, who is also a Board of Trustees (BoT) member of PDP, was accompanied by Rear Admiral John Kpokpogiri, Capt. (Dr) Pius Sinebe and Hon. Basil Ganagana. She said the aggrieved group led by Rev. Israel Unutame, Chief Richman and the councilor from the area, requested that subsequent political appointment in the LGA after the election would have been won be made from Patani South, a condition she said was accepted by all parties.
With the differences sorted out and reconciliation effected, Enamuotor assured that PDP will, as usual, sweep the presidential, senatorial, governorship and state House of Assembly elections in the council area. She appealed to party faithful from the state to vote massively for the PDP to ensure the victory of President Goodluck Jonathan as President and Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa as Governor of Delta State.
