According to the business magnate, the delegations, included those from Owerri zone and went beyond party affiliations.
He also said that it was the reason why “those who left PDP to All Progressive Congress (APC), All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and other parties are present at the gathering”, adding that he is happy that his ‘son’ is the one that brought them back.
Chief Iwuanyanwu who emphasized that Samdaddy is his ‘son’ also described him as a child of destiny who is honest, faithful and straight forward.

Chief Iwuanyanwu, who was one of the speakers at the event, warned party faithful to be mindful of the candidates they choose as the journey to 2019 elections begins.
Also speaking at the event the chairman of the PDP in Imo State, Chief Barr. Charles Ezekwem, denied allegations in some quarters that all positions in the party have been allotted to certain individuals.
He maintained that PDP is a party for all and that fair playing ground will be given to all aspirants.
Chief Ezekwem promised that PDP will allow the people to choose their candidates themselves while the party will protect the chosen candidates.
He said that the era of changing of names and irregular primaries is over and urged Imo people to help PDP to return to power.
Anyanwu (Samdaddy) who is the Senator representing Imo East Senatorial Zone (Owerri) recently declared for the Imo governorship race under the PDP.
