The Dice is Cast: An Opinion on the January 6th Ward Election Held in Delta State


Opinion By: Sologidi Donatus


In giving my opinion on the January 6th Local Government Councils Election and the political charade which has created an atmosphere of discreditable repute that has permeated its process in the opposition camp (APC) in Delta state and in particular the Councillorship election conducted in ward 7 (Ayakoromo community) Under The Burutu Local Government Council of which the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP recoded a landmark victory, I wish to state without equivocation that I am neither an astute politician/card carrying member of any political party nor a self-arrogated activist.

Impelled by the cynical scenes artfully created by the opposition party, the APC in connivance with the so called activists in Ayakoromo community to either tarnish the images of selected individuals or groups or to sue for empathy where there's none, I  decided to shift gear on my initial "Silence is Golden" aphorism.

I wish to address my concerns to some persons, but before that let me quickly  infer that the whole process which produced Hon. Engr. Joe Sozaowei Ezon-wei , Councillor-Elect Ward 7 in Burutu Local Government Council under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party did not start today but through the vicissitudes of time of which we all have records in our disposal and not a product of imposition as erroneously adduced by the "bitter boys".

For the first time in the political bygone times of Ward 7, the big guns in the PDP stated, fought against and opposed, not just in mere words but actions, " imposition of candidate" on the people of Ayakoromo community. Leaders from other wards in the Local Government especially appointees of the state government wanted to impose and fill in female candidates which they claimed was a directive from the state governor. Those who this intra-political colonization favoured were all rejoicing in their numbers forgetting the adage that admonishes one not to count his eggs before they're hatched.


Time gone by, the League of Burutu Democrats which some unscrupulous and nitwit elements now claim has lost its relevance in the scheme of things was same body that boxed "imposition" out of ward 7 and other relevant authorities and personnel through the group's incessant press releases clamping down on imposition.

At this juncture, I wish to engage, Obiri Wenebokefe Jonathan and Anthony Demebide on your continued wailings, lamentations, ill-mannered vilifications and reckless traducement on the Social media against leaders and  what you perceive as an act below the belt coldly dished out to Otoro the APC candidate. You seem to appear like a law unto yourselves. Is this your idea of activism?
I am most baffled by your Blithe ignorance of the true situation.
Oh I shouldn't be, you're an activist so shouldn't know the intrigues, intricacies and rhetorics of politics..

If you don't mind, let me cultivate you, politics isn't taking your pen
and start writing whenever you feel like,. It is purely a game and the only permanent thing is INTEREST. Were you really expecting PDP leaders to canvass support for Mr Otoro as much as they did for Hon. Engr. Joe Sozaowei because he's from the community? The way and manner at which you going about this is really appalling to say the least.

I remember and read how Anthony Demebide rented his voice through writing in support of female imposition in Ayakoromo.. You forgot there is a low and high tide. You were instrumental to the destruction of properties at the October 25th PDP primaries all because every Tom, Dick and Harry wanted to vote for Hon. Joe the popular candidate. Every flower blooms more than once and play your cards right next time.

The dice is cast. I humbly beseech everyone both political activists and otherwise to sheath swords and desist from casting aspersions on leaders. Your fulmination is well understood. No one loses an election and is happy.

Ultimately, our activism, strength and intellectual prowess should be  geared towards  making Ayakoromo a safe haven and a place to be envied in reflection of her great sons and daughters and equally attract human capital development and projects to the community.
