In view of the prospective 2021 Anambra State governorship election, the Social Democratic Party through it’s leaders has said the party is working towards securing the governorship position, as it has returned to its pre-1991 winning ways.
Coming off the recent celebrations of Anambra state at 29, Dr. Webster Okonkwo, the State Chairman asserted that the party was estactic to return to implement its programmes which it could not complete in its first term when Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife was governor.
Speaking further, he stated that the mandate given to Ezeife in 1991 remained unfilled and with 2021 coming in fast, the party is prepared to reclaim its mandate at the polls.
In his words, “The faces and personalities may have changed, but the core message, the ideology and the manifesto remain the same. We believe in our people, we rely on our people and we must invest on our people.
“In a nutshell, SDP was, is, and will remain people-driven, people-focused and people-oriented.”
He said although the Anambra State government borrowed from Ezeife’s programme, it did not give the people what they wanted and called on SDP to return to the drawing board.
Furthermore, he assured that the SDP administration would promote a production and export based economy that would ensure a clear departure from the consumption economy in place today.
Surrounded by the National Vice Chairman, South East, Chief Arinze Ekeleme, state vice chairman, Vincent Chukwurah and other officials, Okonkwo said the party decided to announce that it was fully back and better.
