Reward Alapala Now Or See How His Defection May Ruin PDP In Burutu

By Ndu Samuel, Asaba 

Political pundits in Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State have expressed great concern on why despites the political and economic contributions towards the growth and development of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Burutu Local Government Area and beyond, he is yet to be rewarded with any political office under the present administration of Governor Okowa.

Observers are worried already that if the trend continues like this without any reward for  Amb. Dr. Anthony Ebitonmo Alapala, he might defect and when that happens with his large followers in the grass root, Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State, it may gravely affect the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in subsequent elections particularly 2023, especially now that other political parties are wooing capable hands to join their parties. 

There are so many reasons why Amb. Dr. Anthony Ebitonmo Alapala should be rewarded, apart from always spending his personal money and resources  to deliver candidates of the PDP in every general elections, this he has been doing since the founding of PDP in Delta State. 

He contested Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State but could not win in 2016, thereafter, he waited patiently and contested Burutu North House of Assembly primary in 2018 under PDP. 

Political watchers have begin to wonder on what sin Amb. Anthony Ebitonmo Alapala may have committed that the Delta State Government under the watch of Okowa have decided not to reward a weighty and grass root oriented leader in Burutu despite not decamping even when the temptations where high.

There is a limit as to how every individual can endure certain things, the normal thing in politics is to benefit when your party and people you supported are in power, little wonder why the case is becoming different with Alapala, there seems to be no reward for people that are loyal to the party and doing all they can to secure victory for the party, the Alapala’ s example. 

Anyone trying to undermine the grass root powers of Alapala in Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State is on his or her own as his pending defection may cause problem for the PDP. 

It has become axiomatic that a stitch in time saves nine, those who have ears let them hear and those that have eyes let them see and those that can understand the handwriting, let them read it.

What will it really take to appoint Alapala either as SA, SSA, EA, Commissioner, Waterways and what have you?

See certain comments from some individuals in Delta State below:


Dear Principal Amb (Dr) Alapala Anthony Ebitonmo, It is an unprobable fact that you’ve invested much on the Delta State ruling party PDP over two decades yet you’re not valued nor rewarded as expected. 

Without been told, I knew very well that you’ve been denied political opportunities because of your closeness with the grassroot, good intentions and of course good spirited nature having paid the suppose political prize in the state, local and ward level.

There’s a saying that it’s only when a Good spirited man attain a political office, the people rejoice thus the lamentation in Burutu is proliferating just because good spirited people are very few in the helms of affairs. 

According to Barrister Smooth, he valued only those that valued him, therefore I’m advising to cross to the APC to invest inn your political tactics which am very sure you will be valued as expected.

I can still recall how APC chieftains from the centre were engaging you to join them but you turned them down upon all the promises because of your commitment and love for the PDP that’s yet to reward you services over the years of your participation.

It is on the above premise, I’m sincerely appealing to you as my incredible uncle  and principal to change your political card to where you will be valued Politically and be rest assured that some of us might even join you. 

Kindly give a thought to my appeal as I anticipate for your prompt response.

Thefore other political parties is now eyeing and seriously planning to use him (Alapala Ebitonmo) against PDP come 2023 in Burutu LGA, because of Delta PDP refuses to give him APPOINTMENT or non involving him in the governance processes.

2.  The oposition party, All Progressive Congress (APC) in Delta State Chapter have tirelessly working hard to retain the Governorship seat come 2023. Of which you and I know that, its impossible. Therefore, they have taken all drastically step to make sure to use people like Amb.

Having justified my points of interest to make sure that Amb. Alapala Ebitonmo remain in People Democratic Party (PDP) before 2023 general elections.

The National leadership of the Ijaw Affairs Movement (IAM) Comrade Owudiye Lawrence has thrown his weight behind the publication made by Hon Japhet Bodonyefa and Arerebo Yerinmene over Amb Alapala Anthony Ebitonmo.

 The National coordinator of the Movement in his submission noted that the Man Amb. Alapala Ebitonmo according to multiple writers and political contributors is  “A Valuable Asset’ in the Delta state politics under People Democratic Party (PDP). Therefore his contributions should be applauded and commended.

Amb Alapala Who is a true believer of People’s Democratic Party (PDP),  a faithful party member, a grassroot mobilizer, A voice in Delta Ijaw Community and  a former House of Assembly Aspirant under the platform of the party in the 2019 primary elections in Burutu I Constituency.

He is  also a renowned business man, a generous philanthropist, a youth lover and  a well calculative politician in Burutu Local Government Area, Delta State. 

He is a strong financier of the party whose records are there to verify. Understanding the role he will play as a grassroot political tactician in the forthcoming Delta State guber race should make the party sit up and look into the submission made my the duo earlier.

It is important to call on the Governor of Delta State, Governor Ifeanyi A. Okowa critical political stakeholders from the Party to as a matter of urgency  build a bridge of trust with the dynamic youth leader so as to galvanise votes in the forth coming Delta State elections.

 Odumalagba has contributed immensely to the development and betterment of the people’s democratic party PDP not just in Burutu LGA but across the Ijaw LGA where is political foot prints cum foot soldiers presence are there.

 ODUMALAGBA is that unifying force that the system needs to succeed he added.
