Delta speaker against imposition of leaders

20 January 2016, 18:30

Abuja - The Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Monday Igbuya, believes the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) could regain power if it did not impose candidates on supporters.

“It is a historic challenge which we must rise to confront squarely,” Igbuya said at the maiden tripartite meeting of PDP members in the Delta State House of Assembly.

Commissioners and Advisers to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa participated at the meeting aimed at re-positioning the party.

“Whatever interest people want to advance, my position is, let there be level playing field. PDP members in the House of Assembly must be carried along,” he advised.

To increase the chances of PDP retaining power in the state and also setting it on the path of constructive regeneration, Igbuya not only emphasised party discipline, cohesion, loyalty and integrity but called for a system that would empower members of the party with the right to choose their leaders.

“We cannot sleep and say Delta State is PDP. The success of the party depends on everyone. We should work in concert to ensure a democratic exercise. The PDP must be a vessel for electing leaders who are the choice of the people,” Igbuya said.

He praised the governor for his efforts at charting a new course for the state and the party.

“Governor Ifeanyi Okowa is lifting up the standard of life of the people.

He has set Delta State on the path of progress through his policy of inclusiveness,” said Igbuya.
