By: Ifeanyi Okonkwo,

The Executive Governor’s of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki, that of Oyo state, Seyi Makinde and that of Abia state, Okezie Ikpeazu have assured the Governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the fourth coming 6th November, Anambra Guber election, Mr. Valentine Ozigbo that, “he will emerge victorious”.

The three Governors in their separate speeches, at the launch of PDP E-registration, held at Awka, the Anambra state capital said the party would “reclaim its rightful position”.

Chairman PDP Committee on E-registration and the Governor of Edo state, Mr. Godwin Obaseki before the official lunching, while addressing party faithful said, “This is the first state we are lunching this movement. PDP is the only party in Nigeria. Other parties are ‘special purpose vehicle for election. With what the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is doing now, it will be difficult to rig an election”.

Obaseki, challenged party leaders, executives and ward heads to stand up to the task and deliver PDP.

Outlining the areas the Federal Government has failed, the number one citizen of Edo state insisted that PDP is the only saving grace not just to Ndi-Anambra, but to the entire nation.

The Governor of Oyo state, Seyi Makinde, in his address assured Valentine Ozigbo that, the entire South West are solidly behind him.

“Do not be afraid. PDP will be victorious. I am here to tell you that, we can win the governorship seat, don’t be discouraged. Expect me during your election”. Seyi Makinde, encouraged.

The Governor of Abia state, Okezie Ikpeazu, while speaking to PDP members said, “We must all start to demonstrate that, our destiny is in our hands. If we all do our responsibilities, victory is sure, but if we fail to take the bull by the horn, we will fail. This is a clarion call. We have the numbers and if we all come out em mass and register, Anambra will be ours”.

PDP’s Vice-Presidential candidate, at the 2019 general election and the former governor of Anambra state, Mr. Peter Obi in a vote of thanks emphasized that, PDP is fully ready.

He assured party faithful that, Ozigbo is the next governor of Anambra state.

Obi admitted that, the contest would not be an easy battle, but that he is optimistic that PDP would be victorious at the end of the day.

He said, “I assure you all that we are prepared. Go back to your wards and LGA’s and do the needful. No party is more prepared then PDP. Our party Governor’s and Senators are behind us”.

Head of PDP campaign in the fourth coming Guber election in Anambra state, Sen. Uche Ekwunife, earlier in her welcome address, urged all PDP faithful to be one.

She said, “We can only succeed as a family. United we stand, divided we fall. See yourself as the candidate of this election. The only way you can do that is to make sure we assume the position of authority. Contribute to the growth of the party. We have many challenges but they are surmountable”.

Anambra state PDP Governorship candidate in his remark expressed Joy for the support he has received so far, both from national and state level. He called on PDP faithful to continue to support him stating that he would never disappoint them.

The highlight of the event was Governor Okezie Ikpeazu officially presenting the E-registration cards to Mr. Peter Obi and Valentine Ozigbo.
