Chijioke Nze Is Writing from Awka, in Anambra State
It is no longer news that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s house in Anambra state has crumbled, as major stakeholders of the party in the state have dumped it due to the high handedness of the former governor of the state, Mr Peter Obi.
Information from party members and supporters in Anambra state suggest that, there are no end in sight to the defection story as long as Mr Peter Obi continue to overlord himself over the people and the party.
Just yesterday, the former Minister of Aviation and Senator representing Anambra North Senatorial District, Senator Stella Oduah, dumped the PDP for the All Progressives Congress (APC). This is in addition to two other Governorship Aspirants of the party that have dumped the party after the controversial primaries that produced Chineto Valentine Ozigbo.
Mr Peter Obi, who after serving as Governor of Anambra state for eight years, on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), has continually destroyed the PDP over time with his posture and underhand dealings.
According to some party stakeholders in Anambra state, Mr Obi’s “godfather” role in the affairs of the PDP will continue to ground the party to extinct. It is also obvious now that the PDP may not participate in the November 6, 2021 Guber Election in the state due to multiple court judgments, orders.
In the light of the above, it is only proper for the people of Anambra state, especially members and supporters of the PDP in the state to join forces with the consensus Candidate and Candidate of Zenith Labour Party (ZLP), Dr. Obiora Okonkwo.
Dr. Okonkwo is an employer of Labour and has achieved so much in his individual capacity as an astute politician and entrepreneur. Any vote for Dr Okonkwo is a vote for progress, vote for development and economic prosperity for the people of Anambra state.
