Recently, The Rivers state Governor Nyesom Wike has called on the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to allow Governors in the party to supervise the congresses and governorship primary in Anambra State.
He said winning the November governorship election in Anambra was critical to the PDP and concerted efforts must be made to ensure nobody was alienated in the processes leading to the election of the party’s flagbearer.
Wike said the November election will offer the PDP a rare opportunity to retake Anambra State and consolidate the party’s grip in the southeast geopolitical zone.
The Governor said people must be willing to make sacrifices in the overall interest of the PDP.
He said: “Let us have party interest, not group interest and put everything aside. Anambra used to be a PDP state but because of wrangling and not giving in, that is what has made PDP lose Anambra. Only two states in the South East which are Enugu and Abia are PDP today. If we add Anambra, it is a good boost for us.”
Furthermore, He warned that if PDP failed to win Anambra state it would not work well for the party particularly in the South East.
Wike said: “It must be done transparently. Whether the Congresses or the primary itself, the governors will be in charge to come and do the election.”
