JUST IN : Ozigbo Gains More Ground As APGA Guber Aspirant Joins PDP


APGA Guber Aspirant Joins PDP, Declares Support For Valentine Ozigbo. 

.... Labour Party, SDP, In Nnewi South Collapse Structure. 

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate for the 2021 Anambra governorship election, Valentine Ozigbo, have gained more ground ahead of the November 6 election after the Labour Party (LP) and Social Democratic Party (SDP) structures in Nnewi South collapsed into the PDP. 

The historic event took place on Wednesday, November 3, 2021, when the PDP held the final installment of its supersonic 21-local government rally in Nnewi South LGA.

The rally, which was held at Ukpor Central School, also witnessed the defection of Chief Rommy Okoli, a governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and a former Chairman of the Nnewi South Local Government Area.

While receiving the defectors, Mr Ozigbo said the development reflects where the heart of Ndi Anambra lies. 

"I salute you all for your courage and for choosing to be part of the new Anambra. We have a few days to the election, and we must determine to be on the right side of history," Ozigbo, a multiple award-winning global CEO, said. 

Hon Apostle Modecai Jeffery Ndubueze, the Chairman of the SDP in Nnewi South LGA who led the SDP defectors and Lady Bridget Ume, who led hundreds of LP members to the PDP said they are supporting Ozigbo because his manifesto profers realistic solutions to the issues bedeviling Anambra State. 

In his remarks, the immediate past Governor of Anambra State, His Excellency Peter Obi, said he is endorsed Ozigbo because he is convinced that the respected business leader would continue the development of Anambra State from where his administration stopped. 

While addressing the mammoth crowd at the rally, the Chairman of the PDP Governorship Campaign Organisation in Nnewi South, Dr Ifedi Okwenna, declared that Nnewi South is fully behind the Ka Anambra Chawapu project and would deliver victory for the PDP on election day. 

Also speaking, the Secretary of the PDP in Anambra State, Barr CJ Okoli Akirika, said it is time for Ndi Anambra to vote for PDP, a party he described as "the present and future of Anambra State."

"APGA is the party of the past, and we must do away with the past and embrace PDP, the party of the present and future of Anambra State. Come out and vote for PDP and ensure that Valentine Ozigbo becomes the next Governor of Anambra State," Barr Okoli Akilika charged the gathering. 

In a brief remark, the Deputy Governorship candidate of the PDP in the 2017 Anambra guber election, Lady Chidi Onyemelukwe, urged women in Anambra to vote for PDP, as Ozigbo has always prioritised the welfare of women. 

"On Saturday, come out and vote for PDP. In Valentine Ozigbo, Ndi Anambra have something different; we have a woman-friendly candidate who will give women their rightful place in his government," Lady Onyemelukwe said. 

Several PDP leaders, directors of the Anambra PDP Governorship Campaign Organisation and party stakeholders were present at the rally. 

Valentine Ozigbo is a respected philanthropist and international sports developer who is widely regarded as the frontrunner for the November 6 Anambra guber election. His Ka Anambra Chawapu movement has captured the imagination of Ndi Anambra home and abroad and sparked a renewed belief in the actualisation of a new, progressive Anambra State.
