ENUGUâ€”Self-styled godfather of Anambra politics and member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,Â Board of Trustees, Chief Chris Uba, yesterday blamed the partyâ€™s defeat at the last Saturdayâ€™s gubernatorial election on the crisis that engulfed the party over the selection of its candidate for the election.
Uba who said he was saddened by the monumental loss of the party to All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, accused the PDP National Chairman, Prince Vincent Ogbulafor of being responsible for the defeat,Â insisting that Ogbulafor should be made to face disciplinary committee of the party to explain his role in the poor outing of the party.
He lamented that it would take another four years for the party to recover from the shock defeat, just as he said that unless something urgent was done to salvage the dwindling fortunes of the PDP, the party was bound to lose more states in 2011 general election.
Speaking with Journalists in Enugu yesterday after reviewing the outcome of the election in which the incumbent Governor Peter Obi was declared winner by INEC, Uba said that the process that threw up Prof. Charles Soludo as the partyâ€™s candidate was entirely flawed,Â noting that it contributed largely to the monumental failure of the party at the election it ought to have won.
