Opinion: How Declaration Of Uba As PDP Governorship Candidate May Deepen The PDP Crisis In Anambra

The declaration of Ugochukwu Uba as the Authentic PDP Governorship Candidate in Anambra state will worsen the crisis rocking the Party. It should be recalled the Federal High Court in Anambra State declared Ugochukwu Uba as the Authentic Governorship Candidate of the Party. Meanwhile, the Court has ruled out that Valentine Ozigbo, who was initially the Governorship Candidate of the Party, should stop parading himself as Governorship Candidate of the Party.

The court also declared that the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC should not recognise Valentine Ozigbo as Governorship Candidate of the Party anymore and that all the certificate of return that will make Valentine Ozigbo contest as Governorship Candidate should be declared as null and void. The court gave the directives that Ugochukwu Uba should be recognised as the Authentic Governorship Candidate of the Party.

However, the declaration of Ugochukwu Uba as the Real Authentic Governorship Candidate will worsen the crisis rocking the Party. It should be recalled that Valentine Ozigbo was the Governorship Aspirant that was declared as the winner of the PDP Governorship Primary Election conducted in the state. He became the Governorship Candidate through the Primary election. Though, it was reported that the Primary election was not free and fair but nevertheless, the election supposed to be cancelled immediately, instead of declaring the winner.

The Independent National Electoral Commission INEC should have declared the Primary election as inconclusive, instead of announcing the winner of the Election. There is no way the embattled Governorship Candidate, Valentine Ozigbo will not have his loyalists in the Party. If Ozigbo should be dropped as directed by the court, How will the Party win the forthcoming Governorship Polls in the state? It will be difficult for the Party to win the election because his loyalists will work against the new Governorship Candidate

Meanwhile, The PDP is not that Popular in the state, therefore it will be difficult for the Party to wrestle power from the ruling Party in the state. The PDP doesn't have the control of the federal government. As a result of this, there may not be enough resources for the Party to influence the forthcoming Governorship Polls. It should be recalled that PDP is not the only Opposition Party to APGA in the state, APC is also an opposition Party, This shows that PDP is not the only option for the electorates in the state, if they are tired of the Ruling Party in the state. Therefore, the declaration of Uba as Governorship Candidate of the Party is not the best.

This is just an opinion, anyone having contrary opinions should criticise the write up constructively without insults. Kindly Like, Share and Comment reasonably.
