GOVERNOR Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) remains a party to beat in the state.

He attributed this to his people-focused programmes being executed by his administration and the support of the party faithful.

He said this while addressing the party members at the monthly local government meetings of the PDP.

He said he attended the meeting to identify with the people, appreciate and inspire party members.

Addressing party members at the meetings, Governor Ugwuanyi appreciated God for His protection, mercy and kindness throughout the peak of coronavirus.

The governor, who maintained that the PDP in Enugu State under his watch was very strong, told the jubilant party faithful that “we are not taking your support for our party for granted”.

He urged PDP members in the state to continue to keep faith with the party’s ideals, reiterating his administration’s commitment to sustain the tempo of peace, security and good governance in the state.

While expressing delight at the enthusiasm of members of the party at the various local government party offices he visited for the meetings, the governor said his administration was devising a means to appreciate and recognise those who had not been recognised.

Receiving the governor, the enthusiastic party members reassured him of their total support and loyalty, commending his uncommon leadership qualities that have entrenched peace, security, good governance and participatory democracy in Enugu State.

The governor visited party offices in Enugu South, Enugu North and Enugu East local government areas, among others.

The statement issued on Friday and made available to journalists in Abakaliki said “the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Southeast zone has once again displayed its maturity and readiness to reclaim all its stolen mandates in the zone through the peaceful and united manner in which the zone arrived at a consensus in nominating an illustrious son of the zone, Sen. Samuel Nnaemeka Anyanwu (Sam Daddy) as the zone’s sole candidate for the position of National Secretary of our great party ahead of our national convention.

“The PDP in the Southeast by this honourable and uniting act has once again put its detractors who thought that the fortunes of the party will be destabilized by the ceding of the plum position to the zone.

“The PDP in the Southeast is now more than ever prepared and ready for the task ahead.

“We are sincerely grateful to our leaders in the zone who despite their natural human differences have united and formed a common front in our avowed reclamation of the Southeast for our great party.

“Despite the desperation of political jobbers and power mongers who have adopted all manner of undemocratic moves to lure away our members, the Southeast remains a stronghold of the PDP and we assure our teeming members and supporters that our great party remains strong, firm, on ground and poised for victory as the 2023 general elections  approaches.

Thank you”

Abdullahi Umar Ganduje

Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State has reacted to the petition written by a group of lawmakers led by Senator Ibrahim Shekarau.

The group under the auspices of Joint Stakeholders Forum had written a petition to the APC headquarters on Wednesday, alleging that they had been sidelined despite contributing to the success of the party.

They also demanded the cancellation of the ward and local government congresses of the party.

The other signatories to the petition were Senator Barau Jibrin (Kano North); as well as House of Representative members: Sha’aban Sharada (Kano Municipal), Tijjani Jobe (Dawakin Tofa/Tofa/Rimingado), Haruna Dederi (Karaye/Rogo) and Nasiru Auduwa (Gabasawa/Gezawa); and Shehu Dalhatu, Chairman, Buhari Support Group.

But reacting to their allegations during a stakeholders’ meeting at Government House in in Kano on Thursday, the governor said it was unfortunate that leading members of the party in the state are doing disservice to the party.

He said the aggrieved group do not believe in the party structure since they rejected the party leadership from ward to state level.

“You have failed to deliver good projects to your constituents and you are facing problems then you accused me of your travails?”

“The money you are collecting in Abuja has not come down to your constituents and you’re blaming me? You’re taking me as scapegoat to your problems.

“The congress will hold and the doors are opened to all from every camp to come and contest. It is either by election or by consensus.

“Even where there are no opposing candidates, the contestant will still be subjected to voting” he said.

Earlier, the majority leader of the House of Representatives, Alhassan Doguwa, criticised the group, saying “as far as the true stakeholders of the party is concerned, there is no crisis within the party.”
