Imo PDP members oppose Atiku’s campaign council.

OWERRI— Some Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stakeholders in Imo State have rejected the recently announced list of the party’s presidential campaign council for the state.

The list was released on Sunday by the party’s state secretary, Nze Ray Emeana, with the immediate past governor of the state, Emeka Ihedioha, serving as chairman of the council.

The stakeholders described the list to journalists in Owerri as an extension of Ihedioha’s campaign council.

Speaking on behalf of the stakeholders, Ngozi Ogbu stated that there was no consultation prior to the creation of the list, dismissing it as fictitious and the result of imposition.

Ogbu, the Director General of the Divine Mandate Movement, a campaign structure of the PDP’s National Secretary, Senator Samuel Anyanwu, stated that stakeholders of the party were summoned to a meeting at the secretariat to discuss the composition of the campaign council, but were surprised to see an already composed list.

Myke Ikoku, who also spoke, backed up Ogbu’s claim and urged the party’s National Working Committee and presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar to address the issue.

The stakeholders said: “We the Imo PDP stakeholders reject the fake Presidential Campaign Council list purportedly announced today, November, the 13th, 2022 by the State Secretary of the party, Nze Ray Emeana.

“We wish to use this medium to inform our Party that the stakeholders in Imo State were summoned to a stakeholders meeting to discuss the composition of the Presidential Campaign Council and Campaign Management Committee, but to our surprise and chagrin, the Secretary of the party proceeded to read out a list of members of the Presidential Campaign Council and Management Committee list.

“This led to fracas and the vast majority of stakeholders rejected and opposed the announcement due to lack of consultation and due to imposition.”

“Members frowned at an attempt to use the Presidential Campaign Council as an extension of Ihedioha’s Campaign Council.

“The Party Stakeholders reject the imposition of a governorship aspirant, Emeka Ihedioha, as Chairman of the Presidential Campaign Council, and the directors of his campaign team as heads of the various Presidential Campaign Directorates.

“It is instructive that the members of Imo PDP Elders Committee boycotted the stakeholders meeting due to the above stated reasons.

“We therefore call on the National Working Committee and the Presidential Candidate of our Party, Atiku Abubakar, to arrest the situation urgently to ensure victory for our Party”.
