Southeast Consensus Candidate For PDP National Secretary Emerges
Members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from the southeast zone have agreed on Senator Samuel Anyanwu as their choice for the position of the party’s National Secretary.
This was disclosed by the PDP National Vice Chairman (Southeast), Chief Ali Odefa at the end of their caucus meeting in Enugu State.
Ezenwoko’s Blog understands the caucus meeting from which Anyanwu emerged was attended by PDP stalwarts from the zone including Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi; his Abia counterpart, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu; former Senate President Sen. Anyim Pius Anyim; Sen. Enyinnaya Abaribe; Sen. Ike Ekweremadu; Sen. Sam Egwu; Sen. Obinna Ogba and other lawmakers.
Speaking on their choice, Chief Odefa pointed out that Senator Anyanwu emerged consensus candidate despite the projections of some mischief-makers who thought the region couldn’t speak with one voice.
He went further to assure supporters of the party in the region that PDP remains strong and committed to taking over power at the federal level during the 2023 elections in Nigeria.
He said: “The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Southeast zone has once again displayed its maturity and readiness to reclaim all its stolen mandates in the zone through the peaceful and united manner in which the zone arrived at a consensus in nominating an illustrious son of the zone, Sen. Samuel Nnaemeka Anyanwu (Sam Daddy) as the zone’s sole candidate for the position of National Secretary of our great party ahead of our national convention.
“The PDP in the Southeast by this honourable and uniting act has once again put its detractors who thought that the fortunes of the party will be destabilized by the ceding of the plum position to the zone.
“We are sincerely grateful to our leaders in the zone who despite their natural human differences have united and formed a common front in our avowed reclamation of the Southeast for our great party. Despite the desperation of political jobbers and power mongers who have adopted all manner of undemocratic moves to lure away our members, the Southeast remains a stronghold of the PDP.
“We assure our teeming members and supporters that our great party remains strong, firm, on ground and poised for victory as the 2023 general elections approach.”
