Anambra Guber: No room for misconduct- PDP Governors

Three governors of the Peoples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) yesterday met to finalise preparations for the forth­coming party primaries for the Anambra State gov­ernorship election. They threatened that any aspirant who resort to violence will be disgualified.

The governors – Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta, Ayo Fayose of Ekiti, and the Secretary of the PDP Caretaker Commit­tee, Senator Ben Obi - con­verged at Asaba, Delta State, en-route Anambra for the governorship primaries.

They said that the prima­ries offered the party anoth­er opportunity to consoli­date on the gains of the last PDP’s non-elective congress in Abuja.

After a brief meeting at the Asaba Internation­al Airport, Fayose, who is the Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum, assured members of the party of fairness, transparency and  justice in party affairs.

 While in Anamabra, the governors tasked the aspirants to con­duct themselves peacefully or be disqualified.

Addressing PDP faithful at the PDP’s Secretariat in Awka, Anambra State, the governors said their committee would not tolerate any form of violence or hate speech and unwarranted conduct.
They said that the PDP must get it right this time in Anambra by winning the No­vember 18 poll.

Wike who is the Chairman of the PDP three-man ward delegate congress for Anam­bra said: “We must work to­gether and put our differences aside and make sure that PDP comes back and takes over Anambra State.

“And whether you like it or not power comes from God. You can take the ticket and you may not be able to win the election.
“All of you know what some of us have passed through but God said that we are going to be there and we are there, not because we are stronger, not be­cause we have money but God said that at this appointed time you are the one to be there.

“We have told the aspirants that if any of their supporters makes trouble the person will be disqualified. And with two of us, the Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum and with me as chairman of this panel, no money can change our de­cision”.

Reinforcing Wike’s warn­ing, Fayose said, “If any aspirant is linked to violence, he will be disqualified. I say this because some people are saying that if it does not work in their way, they will scatter the election.

Fayose said: “This is a new beginning for our party, it is part of the efforts of our party to ensure due process and that everybody gets justice, with the calibre of men in this Nation­al Committee, you can be rest assured of transparency, justice and fairness.”
