be patient. We know the plight of our people and the party is doing all in its
power to address their all. Let us forget our yesterday and forge ahead as a
family. Our dream of producing a Delta
State governor in 2015
will only be possible if all Anioma sons and daughters in PDP proved their
continued loyalty, support and commitment to the   party. From the ward, local government to
the senatorial level, all PDP members should support party chairmen at various
levels so that the party will gain more membership. The chairman therefore
appealed to all PDP faithful of Anioma extractions to forgive everyone that has
offended them in the party, stressing that if Anioma politicians continue to
bear grudges, they will not achieve their goal .

back to our people.” Chief Nwaoboshi said PDP in Delta North is committed in

will not deter them (Anioma people) to achieve their dream. He advised Anioma
politicians not to kill themselves over who should be governor in 2015 for God
has already ordained the whoever that will occupy the seat, adding that ,” if we,
the Anioma people are united and speak with one voice, nothing will stop us
from producing the Delta State governor in 2015,” He assured that PDP congress
billed to hold in January, 2012 will be opened for every party member to vote
any candidate of their choice.

In the same vein,
the senator representing Delta North in the National Assembly, Dr. Arthur
Ifeanyi Okowa expressed his profound gratitude to the good people of Delta
North for giving him the mandate to represent them in the senate. He said the only
way the Anioma people can move forward is when they are united, appealing to

offer the party more time to discuss issues affecting the party. Senator Okowa
