Anambra 2021: PDP worries over exclusion of guber candidate from INEC list

The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, south east zone at the weekend urges teaming supporters in Anambra state not to worry over the exclusion of it’s governorship candidate in the released list of the independent National electoral commission, INEC.

The South East zonal leadership of the party made this known in a statement signed by its zonal Zonal Publicity Secretary Augustine Elochukwu Okeke made available to NATIONAL PANEL on Friday.

The statement reads in part: “The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) released a list of candidates for the November 06, 2021, Anambra governorship election which notably did not include the candidate of People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

“To this end, the PDP. South East Zone, wishes to reassure our teeming supporters and the general public, that the non-inclusion of the name of PDP’s candidate in the list by INEC is procedural and does not imply that PDP will not participate in the coming election.

“One would recall that faced with multiple litigations during the Imo North Senatorial bye-election, INEC took a similar stance by not including a candidate’s name for the All Progressive Congress in the list. 

“The considerable public interest, commentaries and concern shown by Nigerians who are worried about the non-inclusion of PDP in the list, is a testament to the acceptance of PDP as the party that Nigerians and Anambra people implicitly and absolutely trust to deliver good governance for Anambra people. 

“The PDP, South East Zone heartily appreciates this concern and the solidarity Nigerians have continued to accord PDP and hereby, re-assures Nigerians of our commitment to deliver good governance in Anambra state” the party leadership noted.
