The ‘Ijaw Equity Group’ has called for the hasty resignation of the People Democratic Party Chairman, Delta state, Hon Kingsley Esiso over his recent comment on 2023 guber senatorial zoning.
Hon Kingsley Esiso in a recent comment, stated that the state PDP will maintain its zoning standard based on senatorial district.
However, the Ijaw Equity Group has slammed Esiso and as well ask for his immediate removal as the state PDP Chairman.
According to the IEP, Hon Kingsley Esiso. has betrayed the trust reposed in him by his recent comments on the zoning of the governorship position in Delta State come 2023.
Esiso was reported to have said the governorship position in 2023 will go to Delta Central senatorial district.
According to Esiso, his position on zoning arrangement was “sacrosanct,” which is a product of zoning.
However, in statement by the Ijaw Equity Group, Edonkumor Jones, Amalade Ebiowei and Felix Indi, Chairman, Secretary and spokesman respectively said;
“Esiso has by his assertion denied the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, of democratic ethos and presented the party in a bad light.
“Esiso’s statement has polarized the party and requires one with maturity to achieve fence mending.
Furthermore, We capitalize quick action towards relieving Esiso of his post so that opposition parties in the state do not capitalize on the growing polarity occasioned by his statement and draw huge political capital from it.”
The Delta State PDP, Chairman has do doubt lost the gait of an umpire, clearly shown bias and thereby affirmed that he cannot midwife a free and credible election where losers could, with sportsmanship, accept they were given a fair play ground and nevertheless pull resources for the growth and success of the party.
“The party Chairman’s callous statement showed, ab initio, that Esiso did not possess the requisite maturity to be chairman of PDP in a transitional tenure.
The group thus maintains that;
Assuming without conceding that there was a binding agreement on zoning, previous Chairmen of the party, who would have been aware, were not callous and braggadocios about it, to cause division in the party as Esiso had done.
