People Democratic Party vows to win Anambra governorship poll


The Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South East, Ali Odefa, has assured that the party would stop at nothing to win the November 6 election in the state.

Odefa, who spoke to newsmen shortly after the announcement of Ozigbo’s victory at the primary election of the party in Awka, said the party will return to the drawing board now and re-strategize for the forthcoming election.

Ozigbo, in the election conducted last Saturday by the Deputy Governor of Edo State, Philip Shaibu, scored 62 votes to beat his closest rivals; Dr Obiora Okonkwo and Senator Uche Ekwunife, who scored 58 and 44 votes respectively.

There had also been another primary election by a faction of the party led by Chukwudi Umeaba, where Sen. Ugochukwu Uba was elected as the candidate.
