The Chairman of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra, Ndubuisi Nwobu, has said that the interest of the party is to take over the government from the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) which currently has Governor Willie Obiano as the Governor of the State.
Nwobu told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Awka on Tuesday, that “We want to conduct our primary election, where party people will freely vote and produce a candidate that will be acceptable to Anambra people at the November 6 poll.”
He noted that the PDP has shortchanged millions of Anambra people in terms of governance and therefore clarified that “This is not (the) time for distractions. We are focused on taking over the government from the All Progressives Grand Alliance.
He also stressed that he “remained the valid chairman of PDP in Anambra, having emerged from a valid process that was upheld by a Federal High Court in its May 24, 2018 judgment”.
He said the judgment had not been reversed by any higher court and that he was “unfazed by any court judgment” which purportedly removed him.
“My leadership is still subsisting; no superior court has set that judgment aside and a court of coordinate jurisdiction cannot do that.
He therefore lauded the National Executive Committee of the party for organizing successful ward congresses in the state which he said was a sure step to the party’s free, fair and credible primary election.
