Winning Anambra Guber Election Critical To PDP – Wike




Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has stated that winning the November governorship election in Anambra is critical to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He stated this while addressing PDP leaders in the southeast during a meeting held in Enugu on Monday to reconcile Anambra stakeholders ahead of the November election.

Wike advised the main opposition party to allow governors to supervise the conduct of congresses and governorship primary in the state.

“Let us have party interest, not group interest and put everything aside. Anambra used to be a PDP state but because of wrangling and not giving in, that is what has made PDP to lose Anambra. Only two States in the South East which are Enugu and Abia are PDP today. If we add Anambra, it is a good boost for us,” he said.

He charged the PDP National Organising Secretary, Col Austin Akobundu (rtd), who was present at the meeting, to ensure that processes leading to election of a PDP candidate in Anambra is done transparently.

“You have a critical role. Luckily you’re from the South East, tell them that look if we lose Anambra, there is a problem for us in the South East. And You know that APC is coming out strong to fight in Anambra State. So let us work together,” Wike added.
