Abuja - Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa has said that the PDP was the only true political party that could guarantee equal opportunity for all politicians in the country.
Dickson, who is also the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Reconciliation Committee, stated this on Tuesday in Abuja.
He spoke at the meeting with state leaders of PDP in the 13 states controlled by opposition parties.
The states include; Lagos, Ogun, Osun, Ondo, Ekiti, Nasarawa, Borno, Yobe, Zamfara, Edo, Imo, Anambra and Oyo.
According to him, the PDP was the only political party that had given everyone a common political platform.
“The PDP is not a religious, regional or a minority party. In 2011, a president from the minority emerged through Jonathan courtesy of the PDP,” Dickson said.
He added that the committee was poised to completely reconcile aggrieved party members, adding that the PDP was big enough to accommodate everybody irrespective of their grievances.
Dickson urged party members to always channel their grievances through the proper party channels.
Former Deputy Senate President Ibrahim Mantu, who also spoke at the meeting, said that the PDP was poised to recapture the 13 non PDP states.
Mantu added that the issue of neglect in federal appointment as alleged by some states was being looked into by the party with the objective of addressing it.
He cited Borno, where the party members claimed that they only occupied grade ‘C’ position in the federal cabinet.
