The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, says it is only non-existent groups in the party that are declaring for the Zenith Labour Party, ZLP, governorship candidate in November 6 election, Dr Obiora Okonkwo.

Nnamdi Nwangwu, the publicity secretary of PDP in Anambra State, who is also Director Publicity Directorate of Valentine Ozigbo Campaign Organization, VCO, stated this in a press statement issued on Tuesday, October 5, 2021.

He pointed out that the youths advocate and other inexistent groups claimed to be declaring for Obiora are not known to the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party at both the national and state levels.

Nwangwu said that fictitious groups claimed to be registered with the National Secretariat of PDP and declaring for Okonkwo can only exist in the wild imagination of the authors of the falsehood.

The PDP Publicity Secretary and Director, Publicity Directorate of Valentine Ozigbo Campaign Organisation, said as a matter of fact that all the known groups and registered sub-groups in the party are in full support of Mr Valentine Ozigbo, the PDP candidate in the governorship election.

Recall that as far back as February 2021, months before the historic primary in which Ozigbo defeated Okonkwo, the umbrella body of all support groups affiliated to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), the National Coalition of PDP Support Groups threw its weight behind Ozigbo.

At Parktonian Hotel, in a widely televised event, Chief Basil Nwolisa led the PDP Support Groups, in endorsing the candidacy of Ozigbo labelling the respected business mogul as the “best chance of PDP clinching the victory in the November 6 election”.

Nwangwu said it is rather unfortunate that instead of presenting to the good people of Anambra State what it has in stock, ZLP and its candidate are embarking on a futile propaganda trip to smear the rising profile of PDP.

He said that no amount of campaign of calumny, propaganda, and lies can distract PDP and her candidate Mr Valentine Ozigbo, who he described as “a gentleman with great vision and passion for repositioning Anambra State for greatness”.

The PDP image maker appreciated the good people of Anambra State for their unflinching support for Mr Valentine Ozigbo.
