(L-R) Hon. Simon E. Hart - PDP Chairman, Bonny, Hon. Randolph Brown, House of Reps - Degema/Bonny, Bro Felix Obuah, PDP Chairman, Rivers State, Sir Hon. Elemchuku Ogbowu, Hon. Ernest Allison arriving the venue of the ceremony
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Rivers State has called on its members in Bonny Local Government Area to remain united and cooperate with the laudable programmes and activities of the party as championed by the leaders in the LGA and the State.
Chairman of the party in the state, Felix Obuah who spoke over the weekend at Finima town in ancient Grand Bonny Kingdom in Rivers State, during the burial of Mrs. Emilia Atibi Allison, grandmother of the State PDP Women Leader, Mrs. Victoria Allison, sympathized with the Allison family over what he described as a great loss to them and the PDP family, noting that Mama Emilia was a dependable support and a real mother to her beloved daughter, Victoria, enabling her to contribute tremendously to the success story of the PDP in the LGA and the State at large.
He emphasized that although Mama Emilia will be missed, but the Party will take consolation in the fact that she had actually nurtured her children, including Victoria, in the way of God, politics and other areas of human endeavours.
While calling on the family to continue on the path of rectitude laid down for them by their late mother, Bro Obuah prayed God to continue in His faithfulness to the Allison family and to grant them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
The PDP Chairman, Bro. Obuah, who, shortly after the interment, met with thousands of Party faithful at the PDP Secretariat in Bonny, similarly expressed satisfaction with the unity and love amongst PDP members in Bonny LGA and called for sustenance and continued participation in all programmes and activities of the Party.
He urged them not to relent in giving their full support to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the Governor Wike-led administration in the State, noting that the ancient Bonny Kingdom is one of the homes of the PDP and that the Party will not fail to appreciate the huge support and contributions of its members in the area.
