A delegate committee setup by the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) for Anambra ward congress, on Monday, read the riot act to its gubernatorial candidates for the upcoming Anambra elections in the state, The committee warned that it would not hesitate to disqualify any candidate involved in any form of violence or malpractice.
Committee members; Senator Ben Obi, Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose and Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike reminded the candidates that the PDP suffered a setback in the state and in order to get victory, they must all work together for the party.
Wike said: ““For two governors and other members of the committee to come and conduct this congress shows how important it is. The PDP in Anambra has suffered much setback. We must work together and put our differences aside and make sure that the PDP takes over the State.
You can win the ticket of the party and still not be able to win the election. It is only agents of other political parties that would want to cause trouble but if you are a true believer in PDP, you know that we have to work as a family. Nobody can buy this committee. We have told the aspirants that if any of their supporters make trouble, the person will be disqualified.
No amount of money can change our decision. That is why I said let us respect ourselves and do the right thing. We are going to conduct a transparent election. If you are popular, go to your Ward, you cannot be popular at the party secretariat here. Nobody can hijack the election.
Everybody should go to his Ward and participate in the election. We have seven agents here nominated by each of the seven aspirants. I can tell you if you like hijack anything before you hijack we have canceled it. Nobody can meet us in any hotel and beg that we should accept their result; everything must be done at the party secretariat.
For the party to have sent two of us here, it shows the seriousness of the exercise. So I want to beg everybody in the name of God let us work as a family. Nobody can influence us, let PDP be strong and win the governorship election.
If we can struggle in our states and win, who is here to stop PDP from winning. Nobody can stop us here because PDP owns Anambra State but because of our carelessness, we lost the Government House. Those representing the state at the Senate and House of Representatives are from PDP but we don’t have a governor. Without the governor, it does not make meaning. So, let everybody work together.”
