The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ebonyi state for the 2023 election, Dr Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii, Tuesday debunked rumors that he is playing a spoiler game on the party.
Odii said there was no truth in the insinuation and described it as mere propaganda fabricated by his political opponents, who he said, were scared of him.
He stated this in a chat with journalists at the occasion of the 25 years anniversary celebration and dedication of Emmanuel Anglican Church Building, in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State capital.
He said nobody except God is behind him, saying, he has all it takes to win the governorship election.
He stated further that the election would be won and lost not through propaganda but by the antecedents, capacity and competence of the contestants.
Odii said: “The season we are, is a season of propaganda and rumor. You should know that nobody is behind me, and nobody shall be behind my governorship ambition, except God. It is only God that is behind my governorship ambition. It is only God that made me to come out for this race and I know, I have all it takes to work for my people and make Ebonyi one of the best states in Nigeria. That’s why I’m in the race.
“So, a lot of gossips will come from my opponents who are scared of Anyichucks. I don’t know why they are scared of Anyichucks? But this election is going be about competence and capacity to deliver dividends of democracy to the people. Ebonyi people are looking for a peace- loving person to be their governor. They will vote based on the antecedents of all the governorship contestants.”
