Foremost Political Pressure Group under the aegis of Burutu Credibility Front, BCF, has warned apostles of power shift that there is currently no political imbalance between South and North of Burutu Local Government Area of Delta state.

The group while briefing the World Press Conference on Friday 21,2022 in Casa De Pedro Hotel, Warri-Effurun, Delta state faulted those calling for power shift in Burutu Local Government Area, adding that there was currently no political imbalance in Burutu LGA as the House of Representatives occupant is from Burutu North while the Council Chairman is from Burutu South.

Speaking at the world Press Conference held in Warri, the Burutu Credibility Front said the group is bringing to the light the position of Burutu people as the PDP Party’s Primaries and General elections draw near.

The group which was led by Mr Darlington Owan, reiterated that Burutu North should have been in the right position to complain over imbalance and not Burutu South, as a son from Burutu South was imposed as chairman in two times to disrespect the collective resolves of Burutu people.

Comrade Williams Welemu Jnr, the group’s Director of media and publicity, maintained that it had never come to light in the history of Burutu Local Government Area that a chairman is elected two times, noting that such was an injustice done against Burutu North.

He disclosed that the group is made up of PDP faithfuls, which membership is drawn across the entire Burutu Local government area.

According BCF: ” we are not oblivious of the scheming of the opposition through proxies and their agents to break our ranks as a party for selfish reasons of gaining power to exploit the Burutu people as they have done to the entire nation — unbelievable socio-economic pains they heartlessly inflicted on us, we are yet to know when we would recover from such pains. We can’t afford to domesticate such mindlessness at play at the national level in BURUTU LGA unchallenged”.

Burutu Credibility Front

Burutu Credibility Front is a Credible Pro-PDP grassroot platform of Burutu People, youths and Women of the People’s Democratic party (PDP) who seek to add their voices to the echoes of true tenets of DEMOCRACY hallmarking the yearnings of all peace-loving and morally stable people ahead of the elections in 2023. Motivated by the foregoing, we hereby affirm/state the following;

1. That Burutu Credibility Front is a platform to advocate and conscientize PDP faithful of the need to stick with the People’s Democratic Party and continue to honour and accept it’s constitution as the ideal guide ahead of the Primaries and General elections .

2. That all members of our great Party reserve the right to a level playing ground to express interest and pursue same to occupy any elective position that they are qualified to contest as guaranteed by the constitution of Nigeria and our party.

3. That we count it a blessing that Burutu federal constituency is structurally divided into two state assembly constituencies within the same territory of Burutu Local Government area and that in itself has provided balance that has kept the conversation of Zoning the federal constituency seat very easy and even at bay.

4. That we are aware of the existence of a mischievous call to Zone the federal seat that has always been free for all the players within the constituency to contest.

5. That we are not oblivious of the scheming of the opposition through proxies and their agents to break our ranks as a party for selfish reasons of gaining power to exploit the Burutu people as they have done to the entire nation — unbelievable socio-economic pains they heartlessly inflicted on us, we are yet to know when we would recover from such pains. We can’t afford to domesticate such mindlessness at play at the national level in BURUTU LGA unchallenged.

6. That we are not for or against any PDP card carrying man or woman who wishes to express his or her democratic right to vote and be voted for, but we would be very quick to resist any one who stands on the head of issue-based campaign or solicitation of support from delegates because after the Party’s primaries we will collectively and surely work with our Party Candidate.

7. That there is currently no political imbalance in BURUTU LGA as the House of Representatives occupant is from Burutu North while the Council Chairman is from Burutu South even though we are very unwilling and unyielding to the very weak position that the former and latter are the parameters used to balance Burutu political equation — using executive office with full executive powers and influence to equate suggestive, contributing lawmaking is the greatest misnomer of the 21st century!

8. It has never come to light in the history of Burutu Local Government Area that a chairman is elected two times despite the fact that there is an arrangement between Burutu North and South along this regard to rule the council. We cannot keep quiet there and boil in another place.

9. As Burutu people, we would rather go for competence and we charge good spirited people of our dear party not to listen to the stories of people that are beneficiaries to the undoing of others within the party.

10. That the Burutu people are looking forward to free, fair and Credible primaries for all Qualified members of our Great Party.11. That we wish to thank the leader of the party in the state, Sen. Dr. Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa for his rare leadership acumen and a-father-to-all role has been playing in the party and the state.Thank you all!
