Confusion in PDP over delegates’ congress in Anambra



There’s anxiety in the People’s Democratic Party PDP in Anambra state, over none conduct of three man-adhoc delegates congress in the state.

The situation has put the party and its members in a fix, as some of them are alleging that few persons have hijacked the process.

As a result, all the 2023 aspirants for elective positions, numbering over 70,0 have petitioned the National Working Committee NWC of PDP to, as a matter of urgency, to correct the anomaly.

The Anambra PDP members fear that if the situation was not corrected, it might lead to the Party not fielding candidates in the 2023 general elections.

The aspirants’ decision was contained in the communiqué issued at the party’s secretariat in Awka, at the weekend after the party’s meeting.

It was read by one of the aspirants and the current member, representing Ekwusigo constituency in the State House of Assembly, Hon Onyebuchi Offor.

Last weekend, the five-man PDP panel for the congress, led by Jibrin Ahmed, failed to conduct the exercise because of their inability to produce the original copies of the result sheets.

However, some of the decisions of the party at the meeting, included calling the national leadership of PDP, led by Dr Iyorchia Ayu to repeat the cancelled exercise or the wards and LGA executives could conduct it.

According to the aspirants, “We note with pain and dismay the inability of Jibrin Ahmed led committee to conduct the three-man ad-hoc delegate election that was to hold on 30th April but was rescheduled to 1st May, 2022 due to unavailability of original result sheets.

“We reaffirm our confidence in the leadership of our great party and trust their ability to lead us to victory in the forthcoming general elections,” the stakeholders said.
