As PDP Tackles Ngige, Uzodimma, over Comments on Anambra Guber

By Jude Atupulazi

The comments by a former governor of Anambra State and now minister of labour and employment, Senator Chris Ngige; and the Imo State governor, Hope Uzodimma, to the effect that his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, would take Anambra through fair or foul means in the coming gubernatorial election, has drawn the ire of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), in the state, which has described the comments as undemocratic.

The Anambra PDP, on Friday, February 26, cautioned Ngige and Uzodimma, over their comments and assured them that whatever undemocratic plot they planned to hatch would not work as the people of the state would choose their next governor by themselves.

The state chairman of PDP, Chief Ndubisi Nwobu, stated this during the visit of a governorship aspirant on the platform of the party, Dr Winston Udeh, where he handed over 21 Toyota Sienna vehicles he bought for the party at its secretariat in Awka.

Ngige and Uzodimma, had on different occasions, said they would use seen and unseen forces to ensure that APC coasted home to victory at the poll.

But Nwobu, who reminded them that Nigeria was not under a military regime, said whatever they planned would not be possible in Anambra.
