Ex- senators, minister chide Ubas, back Ozigbo as PDP flagbearer
• Intersociety, South- East CSOS condemn frivolous court orders ahead Anambra guber
THE former senator for Anambra Central Senatorial District, Ben Obi and his counterpart for Anambra North, Joy Emodi, have berated Chief Chris Uba for seemingly sidetracking the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) leadership in respect of the governorship primary.
Uba, popularly called Eselu Uga, was alleged to be in support of a faction of the party that recognised Senator
Ugochukwu Uba, rather than Val Ozigbo as the November 6, 2021 governorship candidate of PDP via court orders.
Obi, while reacting to the development, backed Ozigbo, saying: “We can’t take this rascality any longer. As far as we are concerned, Val Ozigbo has emerged as the candidate of our party.
“He won the primary recognised by the leadership of the PDP and all of us in the BOT congratulated him.”
Emordi, who is also a PDP BOT member, said: “The Supreme Court has ruled that the party has final right in the conduct of party primaries.”
Also, former Minister of Women Affairs and a member of the party’s BOT, Iyom Josephine Anenih, said those who aim at the party’s governorship ticket through the court, “are the sworn enemies of the PDP in Anambra State.”
Anenih, who berated the Uba brothers - Chris and Ugochukwu, said: “They will fail this time around.”
another development, a coalition of Intersociety and the Civil Liberties Organisations ( CLOS), has expressed displeasure at the rising cases of facetious and discredited court orders over the recently held party primaries in Anambra State ahead of the November 6 gubernatorial elections.
