Despite not being featured on INEC’s list of candidates for the November 6 Anambra governorship election, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed optimism of winning.
The Southeast zone of the party in a statement made available to newsmen said the it is sure of victory gauging the public interest and commentaries that followed the action of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Mr Augustine Okeke, Publicity Secretary of the party’s Caretaker Committee said; “The considerable public interest, commentaries and concerns shown by Nigerians who are worried about the non-inclusion of a candidate for PDP in the list is a testament to the acceptance of the PDP.
“It shows that the PDP is the party that Nigerians and Anambra people implicitly and absolutely trust to deliver good governance for Anambra people,’’ he stated.
Okeke, who reassured the party’s supporters of victory, said that the non-inclusion of the name of PDP’s candidate in the list by INEC was procedural.
According to him: “it does did not imply that PDP will not participate in the election.
“Recall that faced with multiple litigations during the Imo North Senatorial bye-election, INEC took a similar stance by not including a name for the APC in the list of candidates.’’
Okeke expressed appreciation over the continued solidarity of Nigerians for the PDP.
