National Secretary: How Ugwuanyi, Ikpeazu's Decision May Cause Crises In Southeast PDP

The race to the 2023 general elections is gradually taking shape in the major political parties as the members have started making adjustments in political offices across the party structures in the country.

The major opposition party, the PDP had zoned some offices to different regions and the procedure to adopt members into the offices may soon cause serious crises in the southeast chapter of the party.

Recall the position of the national secretary of the party was zoned to the southeast and the region some days ago, had announced Senator Anyanwu as the consensus candidate for the office.

This position was confirmed in a statement issued by the PDP National Vice Chairman for South East, Chief Ali Odefa.

However, it appears the decision may throw the party into a wave of crises in the region as some stakeholders have rejected the nomination of Senator Anyanwu.

This goes in sharp contrast to the consensus agreement which threw up Professor Iyorchia Ayu as the consensus candidate for the position of PDP national chairman.

The north had carefully considered so many factors and had come to an amicable agreement before Ayu was picked.

The imposition of Anyanwu was rejected by PDP major stakeholders like Peter Obi who led the Anambra delegation, former Imo Governor, Emeka Ihedioha who led the Imo state delegation with known PDP members like Ikedi Ohakim, former Senate President, Adolphus Wabara, Onyema Ugochukwu, Senator Uche Ekwunife amongst others.

If these crop of PDP members disagree with the consensus agreement which threw up Anyanwu as PDP national secretary, who then from Imo state which is Anyanwu's home state, pushed for his adoption and subsequent announcement?

The position of the PDP stakeholders was made in a statement signed by a National Ex-Officio from Imo State, Chief Madu Chinemerem. He condemned the action of the Enugu and Abia Governors, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, and Okezie Ikpeazu calling on them to rescind the position.

This portrays a very bad omen for the region and this has also shown how difficult it will be for the region to come to a common agreement as regards its agitation for a president.
