The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra State has expressed fear that the Federal Government COVID-19 palliative sent to the state may be converted to a party affair by the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA).

The state deputy Governor, Dr Nkem Okeke, had on Friday, May 8, received 1,800 bags of rice and 2,400 cartons of tomatoe paste on behalf of the state government from the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development.

In his speech, Okeke thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for the kind gesture saying that the items would be distributed to people who really need it.

Though the details of how the palliative would be shared are yet to be known the state government, the PDP has touted that the palliative will not get to the deserving people.

In a statement by its Publicity Secretary in the state, Mr. Nnamdi Nwangwu, PDP harped on the need for the APGA government to rise above political party sentiments and allow the items brought by the federal government to get to the intended needy people in the state.

“I would not want to talk about how the Anambra State government’s palliatives have been reduced to party affairs. (But) there is need to handle the Federal Government intervention with the fear of God.

“PDP is aware that the state government had on Friday, May 08, received 1,800 bags of 50kg rice and 2,400 cartons of tomato paste from the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development.”

He hailed the party faithful, State and National Assembly members, governorship aspirants and the Vice Presidential Candidate for PDP in the last general elections, Mr. Peter Obi, for their humanitarian and philanthropic gestures to Anambra people to assist them stay safe and without hunger in the state.
