AWKAâ€”IN what was seen as a morale booster, the South East leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has conveyed the message of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party to the Anambra state chapter of the party, that there was no going back on the recognition accorded the Uchenna Emodiâ€“led executive of the party in the state.
South East zonal chairman of PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh, who led all the zonal officers on a visit to Anambra state, urged the state executive to continue with its reconciliatory move and ensure that everybody was carried along in the scheme of things in the party and in the state.
According to him, the party would no longer tolerate divided loyalty, adding that those who are for the party, must be absolutely loyal to the leadership at all levels to ensure harmony.
â€œFor years, we have been in the wilderness. We have suffered and cried and by the grace of God, our suffering will soon end as we are determined to take over the Government House in 2010. What this means is that we must campaign hard. The enemies will come, but we must work hard to achieve our aim.
â€œPDP is the only party where you have the largest concentration of intellectuals in this state and what we need is to join hands in working for the party in the interest of Anambra state. We have all the Senators, all the members of the House of Representatives and all the 30 state legislators, which confirms PDPâ€™s dominance in this state. We must therefore not allow the Government House to slip off our hands again,â€ Metuh told party officials.
He explained that the national leadership of the party had directed all elected and appointed persons on the platform of PDP to embark on sensitization visit to their constituencies, adding that the zone would soon organise a rally in the Anambra state as part of the build-up to the 2010 governorship election.
