The four Governors of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP in the southeast failed to attend the zonal meeting of the party on Sunday in Anambra State.
None of Governors Emeka Ihedioha of Imo, Dave Umahi of Ebonyi, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu states attended the meeting.
The southeast meeting of the party however attracted the zonal Chairman of PDP, Austine Umahi from Ebonyi and the Governorship hopefuls for Anambra 2021.
Leading the pack of the governorship aspirants were Dr Obiora Okonkwo, Sen. Uche Ekwunife and Hon. Chris Azubuogu among others.
The aspirants vowed to work together to ensure victory in the 2021 governorship election to make the entire zone a PDP controlled zone.
They also promised that they would not allow the party to be hijacked by money bags or its ticket bought, during the election.
Addressing the members, the zonal chairman, Mr Austin Umahi, warned interested aspirants to rather resort to hard work than hoping to hijack the party.
Hon Ndubuisi Nwobu, Anambra state Chairman of PDP, said the party would not do any form of merchandising in the forthcoming election.
He urged those who had interest in contesting the governorship election to go and seek the support of the people and not hope that they could induce the party to hand them the ticket on a platter of gold.
