Awka – A People Democratic Party (PDP) stalwart in Anambra state, Chief Mike Okoye, says PDP still has a solid grip of Anambra in spite of claims by other political parties that they have strong backing.
â€œPDP has no rival in this state,â€ Okoye, a former PDP senatorial aspirant in the 2007 election in Anambra, told newsmen in Onitsha,Â while fielding questions on PDPâ€™sÂ preparedness for the 2010 governorship election.
â€œWhoever emerges as the PDP flagbearer in the state will surely win the governorship election scheduled for FebruaryÂ 6, 2010 in this state since we have our machinery and structure fully on ground,â€ he said.
Okoye, who said that the crisis in PDP in the state was strictly a family affair, added that it would soon be resolved amicably.
He assured that the party would present a single and credible candidate for the election.
