â€œAs the state chairman of the party, I want to say that the report is sending a wrong signal to our aspirants. And I want to state categorically clear that Anambra PPA has not conducted primaries for its governorship aspirants. We shall soon conduct it and when we do, it would be free and fair. The party will give all the aspirants a level playing groundâ€
He said the party executive was making arrangements towards the conduct of the primaries and would announce the date for the primaries as soon as it was concluded.

On voter registration, he called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to provide adequate materials and man power for the exercise and advised party members to go for verification of their names in the voters register in order not to be disenfranchised.
