The senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial District at the National Assembly has said that Chief Chris Uba remained one of the leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra State that would ensure the party’s victory.

Senator Ekwunife, who is the chairman of the PDP Governorship Campaign Organisation, disclosed this on Sunday during the inauguration of the State Election Council for PDP governorship candidate, Mr Valentine Ozigbo, held at Senator Uche Ekwunife event centre, Awka.

“Despite the crisis that ensued during the party primaries between Chief Chris Uba and the National leadership of our great party over the choice of candidate, Chris Uba, remains one of the PDP leaders in Anambra State,” the senator stressed.

“Chris Uba and Chief Linus Ukachukwu, are ranking party members in Anambra and beyond; you cannot wish them away. We need them to win the Anambra guber election.

“Let us continue to work on how to bring him and other aggrieved members back happily before the election proper,” Ekwunife advised.

She urged party leaders and faithful to shun self-interest and sycophancy.

The senator told her audience to ensure commitment, dedication, as well as to demonstrate creativity and innovation as the party seeks to overthrow the ruling All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA). 

According to her, “This is not the time for gallivanting or seeking personal interest. We are called to serve, and this we must demonstrate through our individual and collective actions for stable take over of power.

“We must ensure that our conducts do not drive away our supporters but bring them in, closer to the PDP project in the state. Let us remain united, committed to having a workable and stable election in the local governments, and avoid acts capable of denting the image of the party. 

“The task ahead of us does not call for mere occupying of positions, rather, it is a call to service, so that Anambra State will maintain stable and effective leadership come 2022. Therefore, this meeting is not only targeted at inaugurating SEC, it is also a platform for us to share and reflect on the Council’s Terms of Reference, and set preliminary timelines for setting up formidable election management in 21 LGAs and 326 electoral wards. 

“I want to emphasize that while reflecting on the task before us, no less is expected of us than our utmost best, which calls for dedication and commitment. More importantly, your demonstration of ingenuity, creativity, innovation and pro-activeness in the handling of both individual and group tasks shall provide the magic that will enable us to overcome our opponents. 

“Therefore, your conduct and performance must at all times reflect your sensitivity to the needs, for our candidate to emerge victorious come November 6, 2021”, she admonished. 

While reminding the team members of their expectations and terms of reference, Ekwunife, a former governorship aspirant in Anambra, told the PDD supporters to leave no stone unturned until the party’s governorship standard-bearer in the November 6 election, Mr Valentine Chineto Ozigbo, emerges winner. 

She described Mr Ozigbo’s emergence as divine and stressed the need to give him unalloyed support. 

In his remarks, the Director-General of the campaign organisation, Dr Alex Obiogbolu, assured that they would give the flagbearer maximum support, and urged the council members to do their best for the party saying that the party.

Mr Ozigbo, had, in a vote of thanks, urged the members of the election council to employ teamwork and hard work as they execute their tasks, just as he enjoined them to imbibe the spirit of sacrifice and oneness. 

While urging other aggrieved members of the party to sheath their sword and unite to build a better, stronger party in the state, Mr Ozigbo, a former Transcorp Plc boss, told his audience to seize the opportunity of the ongoing INEC continuous voters registration to galvanise over 200,000 voters for the party.

Nigerian Tribune gathered that chairmen, deputies and secretaries and other members of the campaign organisation in the 21 local government areas in the state, party leaders and chieftain, women and youth leaders, were present during the inauguration of the Anambra State Election Council for Mr Ozigbo governorship ambition.
