Chief Anthony Anenih
The Peoples Democratic Party is unarguably the largest party in Africa and that is because of the Tom Dick and Harry that are in it, which started with controversies. At the early period of the forth Republican democratic experiment the PDP came out with one strange political ideology or philosophy called 'harmonization', an ideology that gave people in privileged positions to do whatever they liked with impunity without the fear of God. They oppress the poor and snatched the rights of the orphans of their positions and impoverish the defenseless. This attitude of the PDP, observers noted was the seed sowed that has now germinated and yielded so much fruit of its kind. The PDP at that tender age of its existence was said to have used the controversial harmonization abracadabra to rob Peter to Pay Paul and in the process caused acrimony buried in the hearts of almost every member of the party, whose father, mother, sister, brother, friend and or self had suffered deprivation in the name of harmonization. In fact it was like that is the tradition of Nigerian politics, because whatever PDP does, is like what Nigerians do because it is the ruling party.  There is no sufficient space to catalog the crisis of PDP at all levels, but one can just mention the very recent efforts made by some party big wigs to broker peace. The new B.O.T Chief Tony Aninih, the former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, and the Governor of Bayelsa State, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson have in their own individual capacities brokered peace that ended up with political acceptance that ended at the surface and never at heart. The National Convention of Saturday 31st August 2013 is a show of shame and a monumental disgrace. PDP should make a u turn for the better.
