The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra State at the weekend appealed to the citizens of the state to give the party an opportunity to transform the state and change what he described as bad governance which the state has faced for so long
State PDP chairman, Sir Ndubuisi Nwobu, who made the appeal, promised that the PDP will bring positive dividends to the state, if elected into power, adding that the party is determined to win the governorship election.
Nwobu who stated this when the state Working Committee received a governorship aspirant, Chief Vincent Oligbo, assured that the party would conduct free, fair and credible primary election where the party’s candidate would emerge for the election.
“We are very pleased with the attitude and position of Chief Oligbo. He is not a politician who plays politics of bitternes. He believes that once things are done right he will win the primary election and if he doesn’t win, he will support any candidate that emerges from the primary in PDP.”
“Our plan to conduct free and fair primaries is not a difficult task. It is when you are planning on how to manipulate that is when you start having some challenges. Once you are focused that you want the primaries to be transparent, you won’t have any problems because as we speak today the total number of delegates that will participate in the primary is about 3300 delegates.
“As we speak today 2,180 delegates are already known. They are the wards executives, chairmen, deputy chairmen, secretaries, youth leaders and women leaders and then the local government and state executives of the party. So what is left now is the congresses to elect three ad hoc delegates and the totality of their number is not more than 990 delegates.
“I’m appealing to Anambraians to give PDP a chance come 2021, I am assuring them that if PDP is given a chance to come into governance, it will bring positive dividends to our people,” Nwobu assured.
