ONITSHA, Anambra- Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), Anambra state has stated that the presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP) Mr. Peter Obi can no longer deceive the youths again in the state.
PDP in a statement issued by the Deputy Director Media and Publicity,PDP Presidential Management Committee, Anambra State Uloka Chibuike on Wednesday in Awka Anambra state said Mr Peter obi has been manipulating Anambra youth and using lies, deceit, blackmail, sentiments and emotions curry support.
According to him,the life span of lies and deceit is short, and Obi’s unpopular Labour Party is currently suffering for support in Anambra State and other parts of the South East because his deceit has grown stale over time and lacks the strength to compete with the PDP’s influence and legitimacy in the state.
“With the 2023 Presidential election a few months away, there’s no doubt that Anambra State is gradually returning to the status quo with the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, with Atiku Abubakar’s victory more probable.
No Presidential Candidate has more support and acceptance in Anambra State than the former Vice President.
The PDP has taken over the streets, nooks, and crannies of Anambra State, and the minority Labour Party supporters who are still standing with Peter Obi are no longer at ease or confident in their ability to win the election.
The Obi strategy has long been manipulating our youth and using lies, deceit, blackmail, sentiments, and emotions. The life span of lies and deceit is short, and Obi’s unpopular Labour Party is currently suffering for support in Anambra State and other parts of the South East because his deceit has grown stale over time and lacks the strength to compete with the PDP’s influence and legitimacy in the state.
Following the appointments and inauguration of the Presidential Council and Management Committee, led by the duo of Senator Ben Ndi Obi, CON, and Professor Obiora Okonkwo, OFR, who have, through their leadership and daily engagement, rejuvenated the commitment of party faithful, affiliates, and supporters, the PDP has become the only alternative in the state and is confident of delivering 85% of Anambra votes to Atiku Abubakar, GCON, in 2023” he stated
According to him, in recent weeks, the PDP has welcomed hundreds of returning members and thousands of sympathizers from other Anambra political parties, with more expected to join Atiku Abubakar’s Crusade in the coming weeks.
He stated that election is about numbers, and so far, only the PDP can boast of the numbers to win the Presidential election in the state.
“As more people are becoming aware of Peter Obi’s weakness in the nation’s polity and his inability to gain majority votes throughout different regions of the country, his mystification is no longer having the desired effect.
Our people have abandoned Peter Obi and his endeavor to retrogress the South East politically as they gradually come to the realization that throwing away our votes won’t be best for the survival of Ndi-Igbo in the country’s politics.
Like we have always done since 1999, Anambra State will no doubt return to status quo with the PDP and ensure that the state leads in front of the anticipated victory of former Vice President, HE, Atiku Abubakar, GCON.
Only a few of Peter Obi’s personal assistants, family members, and misguided individuals are left in his ineffective Labour Party, and their combined votes are inadequate to overthrow the PDP or challenge Atiku Abubakar’s victory in any local government of the state. Anambra is the PDP’s to lose” he added.
