The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Caretaker Committee in Anambra State, Professor Alphonsus Nwosu on Thursday called on politicians in the state to quit money politics and return to true democracy where people’s choice matter.
Nwosu, who spoke during the inauguration of members of the Local Government Committees of PDP at the party’s secretariat in Awka, urged the committee members to go back to the wards and inaugurate the various Ward Executives for work to begin in earnest.
He said that his committee has come to right the wrong in the party by projecting a one door open policy, adding that the voting process must be brought back to the system in the state through PDP, while money bags will be shown the way out.
“We won’t tolerate anymore rigging or political hijack in Anmabra State. This time around, people will cast their vote and their votes must count. We have come to sanitise the system, that is why we are adopting a front door open policy,” Nwosu stated.
He said that PDP has come back stronger as one body, adding that all stakeholders and elected members under the PDP were consulted in the ongoing process to ensure a smooth landing.
In his words: “We are also going to make necessary inclusions to accommodate any interest that has been inadvertently missed out in the compilation of the final list.
“The new structures will be charged with the responsibility of selling the new PDP message to the grassroots.”
Speaking on the party’s new message, the former Minister of Health said: “The new message is simple; raising the quality of human beings in Anambtra State through quality education and meaningful employment. We want to produce new Dr. Nwafor Orizus, new Dr. Ernest Obiejesi (Nest Oil), Barrister Onyema Allen (Air Peace), Chief Innocent Chukwuma (Innoson), Chief Vincent Obianodo (Young Shall Grow), Chief Augustine Ilodibe.
“It is unfortunate that the state cannot produce politicians in the likes of Dara Akunwafor, Chief Mbazulilike Amaechi (The Boy is Good). To do this, of course, requires improved infrastructure. This is what the PDP promises for Anambra State."
On his part, Obi, former Governor of the state, urged the party faithful to join hands in building a stronger and formidable party capable of winning election.
He said: “We should eschew bitterness, look away from who is old party member or new member and focus our efforts at winning the election, that is why we are here. Let us come together and work together as one body in order to win at the poll.”
