A group within the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Fresh Congress Group, FCG, has accused some of the governorship aspirants in the coming Anambra election of being agents of other political parties being used to overheat the polity in the state.
Chairman of the group, Pastor Emma Obiora raised the alarm in a press statement made available to DAILYPOST on Saturday.
Obiora said the PDP leadership in the state and national levels should, immediately fish out those whose objective was to drag the party back at a time well-meaning members were determined to do everything humanly possible to move the party forward.
Obiora said: “The PDP, having come out of a protracted battle, should show a lot of good judgment as it did in Osun State, which led to the successful election of Senator Adeleke in that state, if it hopes to make a headway in the struggle for the governorship of Anambra State.
“Anambra PDP should not forget in a hurry the mistakes of the past. The party has a large followership in Anambra, but some of their leaders and stakeholders are playing spoilers’ roles so that All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, government will survive.
“It is on record that some political vampires have invaded Anambra State PDP in recent times because of the electioneering time-table to choose a flag bearer for the party. Privileged information has it that some of the so-called wealthy political gladiators are being used to destabilize the PDP congresses and primaries in the state, which is most unfortunate.
“Some of them are known to have become agents of opponents of PDP in the state and are being used to overheat the polity and bent on presenting a weak PDP candidate for the governorship, just to weaken the chances of a more credible candidate.
“The state and national leadership of our party should endeavour to give us a more credible and saleable candidate that should defeat other contestants from other political parties.”
