 An aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Edo State, Osaro Onaiwu, has ended a tour he embarked upon to reconcile aggrieved members of the main opposition party in the state. Onaiwu, whose reconciliation train has so far visited PDP Secretariats in 16 local government areas, in the state, pointed that the tour was aimed at reconciling aggrieved party members as a result of the aftermath of the state congresses.

I appeal to party members and loyalists to put behind them issues arising from the state congress held about a month ago. I am a party man. I believe in the PDP. I believe that for any party to win an election, it must first put its house in order, hence my appeal to aggrieved members to do away with issues that will divide the party.” He urged members and chieftains of the party to embrace peace and put the PDP first in their political endeavors, adding that “the party is the foundation and structure to any country’s democratic process. In politics, individuals do not own political structures. The political party is the structure.” Meanwhile, during a visit to Chief Samson Esemuede, a PDP chieftain in the state, Esemuede expressed satisfaction with Onaiwu’s reconciliation tour. “I have been following your campaign and I’m glad to describe you as an apostle of peace. What the Party organ is supposed to be doing is what you are doing. With your reconciliation meetings, I can categorically say, you are one of those giving life to the PDP in Edo state. As DG of the PDP Governors’ forum, you have behaved well,” he said. Also, the Assembly of Benin Aborigines, ABA, has commended Onaiwu for the reconciliation tour, saying, “Your action according to the Assembly is a manifestation of your undiluted desire and passion to serve your people in an environment of peace and tranquility. What the Party should have done is what you have taken upon yourself to do.”
