The Anambra State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the weekend declared its readiness to win the 2021 governorship election in the state saying that it will help to solidify its grip in the Southeast zone.

Anambra State which used to be a PDP state is currently under the reigns of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) for 13 years running.

Addressing party faithful during a meeting in Awka with a theme; “Putting Anambra State back into the political track of the South East”, the zonal chairman, Mr. Austin Umahi, called on interested aspirants to embrace hard work and eschew the act of hijacking the party machinery.

He expressed joy that the state chapter of the PDP is now one family without no faction or dissenting groups.

Umahi said: “I want to assure you that under my watch, no one man can hijack this party. My wish is that under my watch, Anambra will be returned as a PDP state. I am not in doubt that you have the capacity to do this. You have people in Anambra who are capable, and the party in the state also has the resources.

“When we started working to win Imo State, I was always going to the state on a weekly basis, and it was like a joke, but today Imo is a PDP state. We hope that Anambra will be the fifth PDP state in the south east, and when I am handing over, I will do so with happiness.”

Earlier in his speech, the state chairman of the party, Hon Ndubuisi Nwobu, said the party will not condone any form of merchandising in the forthcoming election.

He said: “All those interested in contesting the governorship election should go and seek the support of the people and not hope that they can induce the party to hand them the ticket on a platter of gold.

“Our zonal chairman, may I tell you that Anambra PDP is very easy people to govern. I found this out since I became the state chairman of the party.

“All you need to cage an Anambra man is to keep telling him the truth. As elections approach, I want to say that there will not be any form of merchandising during this election. The primary election of the party would be very transparent.

“If you tell Anambra people the truth, they Are very easy to handle. Do not listen to people who will come with money because they need the ticket. What Anambra man does not like is asking him, ‘what will you do?’”

The meeting was well attended by notable politicians from the state, including serving lawmakers and former governorship candidates of the party.
