Anambra PDP Exco resumes office, pledges loyalty to Ozigbo

Anambra State Executive of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, led Mr. Ndubuisi Nwobu has resumed duties following the judgement of Court of Appeal on Monday, reinstating it.

The Nwobu-led executive which was dissolved by the national leadership of the party was reinstated by the Court of Appeal thereby putting to stop the speculation surrounding the authentic candidate of the party in the November 6th governorship election.

Mr Nwobu later pledged the loyalty of the state executives to Valentine Ozigbo who emerged from the primaries conducted by the party at the Women Development Center of the state.

In his word during the press briefing at the party’s Secretariat in Awka, “You are aware that I’m back and the appellate court has put to rest the issue of the leadership of the party in this state.

“Some people got a court order which they know can not stand just to disrupt what we are doing. We only made a sacrifice by stepping aside to ensure that a candidate emerges because we know that the election of a candidate is bound by time.

“Now that Ozigbo has emerged, he has our collective support, and we will work for him to win the governorship election. We are at home with Ozigbo and we are going to work with him to ensure he wins. There is no doubt about who the candidate of the party is any longer, because that has been settled by the judgement of the Court of Appeal.

We are not surprised about the court order which removed us. This started in 2002 and is perpetuated by people who are using the party for merchandising.

They come out every election period and play the same game. We knew it was a temporary game.”

He further thanked members of Board of Trustees of the party in the state for coming together to support him and ensure he returned as chairman but pledged to sack members who are unwilling to turn away from anti-party activities.”

“I want to thank the BoT members and other leaders of the party, and all members of the party and its leadership at the grassroots. We are happy that the wishes of the people of Anambra have come to be, and we urge them to rally round the candidate of the party to drum up support for Ozigbo.

“We will commence moves to immediately reach out to our party members, especially the aggrieved ones and try to woo them back into the party. But for those who are not easy to bring back to our fold, and have proven to be consistent with fighting the party, we will show them the way out. People who are hell bent on remaining in their old ways, we will sack them, but for those ready to change,we will visit them and try to bring them back to us when they show remorse,” he added.
