The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Imo State Chapter has said that it is determined to reclaim what it described as a stolen mandate in Imo State, and to make sure that the Douglas House is occupied by a PDP candidate come 2015.
The party’s contact and mobilization committee led by Chief Jerry Chukwueke, a governorship aspirant come 2015, made this disclosure while addressing thousands of party faithful at the community school playground Iho, in the Ikeduru local government area of Imo State, during a sensitization rally penultimate Friday.
The event which was attended by the party Stalwarts including Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, Hon. Sam Aka, Chief Uzoma Obijo, Hon. Samdady Anyanwu and a former minister, Hon. Chuks Udom saw the readimission of members who left PDP for other parties, due to intra-party squabbles.
Also addressing the mammoth crowd the local government party chairman, Mr Emma Ofurum, said the gathering was not a political campaign since there is still a ban to that effect, but rather a sensitization rally designed to keep the spirit of PDP alive. He appealed to the PDP faithful to remain steadfast and committed in the things of the party, adding that after thick darkness there would be a glorious dawn. He said the task of taking over Imo State and rebuilding the destroyed structures must be carried out.
Also speaking during the occasion, the state youth leader of the party, Hon. Okechukwu Ezuruike said that Ikeduru remains the PDP’s strongest hold and would continue to be until the party takes over the rulership of Imo State come 2015, adding that the mammoth crowd can attest for that.
Both Chief Iwuanyanwu and Hon. Aka, including other party chieftain’s enjoined members to be their brothers keeper, in this time of political alignment and realignment.
