The State Executive Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra State, following their reinstatement by  the Court of Appeal last Monday, has resumed office.

The committee Led by Mr. Ndubuisi Nwobu, was dissolved by the national leadership of the party, following a court judgment in a suit instituted by Samuel Anyakorah, which challenged the leadership replaced by Chukwudi Umeaba, whose faction recognised Senator Uba as the factional PDP candidate for November 6, 2021 election.

 Guardian that the outcome has therefore validated the candidature of Mr. Valentine Ozigbo, who emerged from a parallel primary election conducted by the party and supported by the Uche Secondus-led National Working Committee. Speaking at a media briefing to  announce the return of his executive at the PDP secretariat in Awka, the state capital, yesterday, Nwobu revealed that the Appeal Court judgment had totally brought to an end the issues about who is the authentic candidate of the party.

He thanked the party’s Board of Trustees members for their support toward his return as chairman and pledged to oust members who are unwilling to turn away from anti-party activities. However, he lamented the numerous court orders received by members of the party, stating that it is capable of disrupting the activities but reiterated that such cannot stand.

Nwobu, who regretted that some party members got a court order, which they know cannot stand but to disrupt what we are doing, said that his executive only made a sacrifice by stepping aside to ensure that a candidate emerges.

He said they were not surprised about the court order, which removed the Anambra State PDP executive, adding that it started in 2002.

Besides, he promised that the executive and party members would work for Ozigbo to ensure his victory and take over of Government House.
