The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday, recounted that the former chairman of its Board of Trustees (BoT) and former minister of Works and Housing, Chief Anthony Anenih, stabilised the party during its formative years as well as helped it remain in control of governance at the centre.
The party stated this while congratulating and rejoicing with Anenih, the Iyasele of Esanland, who attained the age of 85 years.
The national spokesman of PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a press release, recalled, “with pride, the fatherly and stabilising role Chief Anenih played, both in the formative years of the party and the years when the party was in control of governance at the centre.
The PDP added, “Chief Anenih put his wealth of experience as a political strategist and mobiliser, particularly in ensuring that the party remained the standard bearer for majority of politicians in the country.
“His belief in the unity and oneness of PDP family was exceptional and earned him the sobriquet, “Mr-Fix-It”.
“The PDP also recalls the outstanding roles Chief Anenih played in stabilising our national polity, particularly when he served as minister.
“The PDP family is happy that, at the grand age of 85 years, the Iyasele of Esanland can still look back to see that the party he helped nurture, still remains the platform of choice for majority of our compatriots.
“The party, therefore, wishes him many more years in good health, so that the nation will continue to tap from his fountain of knowledge,” PDP said.
