Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,
members in Anambra State at
the weekend threw their weight
behind the senators representing
Anambra in the Senate, saying
that the Oguebego faction were
not part of the primaries that
produced candidates of the party,
and as such cannot question the
primaries or foist their factional
candidates on them.
They urged the Independent
National Electoral Commission,
INEC, not to give in to intimidation
or blackmail by any individual or
group over the recent Supreme
Court judgment.
The party members from the
21 local governments of the
state who converged at the State
Secretariat of the party in Udoka
Housing Estate, Awka advised
the Commission to rise to the
occasion and refuse to be cowed,
by carrying out its responsibilities
based on the rule of law.
In the statement signed on
behalf of PDP supporters in the
state by Engr. Chidi Oji and Andy
Mordili and made available to
newsmen, the members while
warning that “enough is enough,”
called on the State Chairman of
the party, Chief Ejike Oguebego
to embrace peace, as “only peace
can return the party to the path of
glory in Anambra.”
The press release reads,
“Contrary to all the stories that have
been peddled by this group, no court
judgment held that the State Chapter
of a Party can conduct primaries and
submit list to INEC.
“No Judgment also held that
the sitting members of the PDP
from Anambra State emerged
from primaries conducted by the
Caretaker Committee. Anambra
State should not be in the press for
the wrong reasons. The court has
spoken and we the Anambra people
have spoken.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the
PDP Legislators in the National
Assembly are the Legislators that
stood for elections and were voted
for by the Anambra people. They
should be left alone to concentrate
and work in order to actualise the
objectives for which we voted for
“Enough is enough. We say that
there should be an end to their being
distracted; there should be an end
to misinformation. We spoke when
we cast our votes for our legislators
in the National Assembly, we are
speaking now when we say that the
candidates under Ejike Oguebego
were never part of the electoral
process, they did not participate in
the election and therefore could not
have been voted for.
“For the umpteenth time, please
leave our legislators alone so they
can affect our lives positively
