Anambra PDP: South east leader reads riot act to troublemakers

The Peoples Democratic Party () has warned the members of the state chapter of the party to stop their rascality forthwith to pave a way for the enthronement of a new state executive.

The Vice Chairman of the zone, Chief Austin Umahi who issued this warning on Tuesday in Abuja said that the new national leadership is out to put sanity in the place in state

Umahi added that henceforth any one who causes trouble will be shown the way out.

He said in spite of the South-East being one of the strongest bases of the PDP, it has continued to lose election in Anambra due to impunity and lack of internal democracy adding that the new leadership of the party no longer tolerate it.

Umahi explained that the party would no longer tolerate a situation where members   would be involved in acts capable of jeopardizing the chances of the party in the state.

“On the issue of Anambra State, as the South-East zonal chairman and a member of the newly constituted National Working Committee (NWC), we want to state categorically that Anambra is too important to us.

“Everything that is happening in Anambra state is as a result of impunity, lack of internal democracy and we have come to say enough is enough.

“With a man like Secondus, we want to revisit and regain Anambra State. We will be holistic in our approach. What happened in the last election was a result of PDP fighting itself and what I call pull him down syndrome.

“It is not that PDP is not in Anambra. It is a result of intrigues and people bent on pulling the PDP down in Anambra because of their selfish interest. We are saying enough is enough. This rascality must stop and we must get it right.

He stated that “the party has suspended the congress in Anambra with a view to. to go back and do the right congresses and constitute the right State Working Committee. That is the way to go in Anambra State.

“Having said this, before taking this decision, we have done a wide consultation because I believe in consultation. The way to go in the South-East particularly in Anambra is to get it right. Though, we lost the governorship election but the most important thing is to get it right in subsequent elections so that we can regain all the lost grounds.

“Our chairman has decided that zonal issues should be handled by zonal chairmen. No issue of concentrating power at the national.

“In a couple of weeks, you will see properly constituted working committee in Anambra state.”
