LAGOS—THE Campaign Organization of Senator Annie Okonkwo, the nominated candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the 2015 Anambra Central Senatorial district primaries has hailed the Court of Appeal verdict setting aside Uche Ekwunife’s victory as proper and timely, saying the constant beam of truth will always outshine the human burden of lies, darkness and deceit.
Senator Okonkwo’s Campaign Organization stated this in a release by its Media Adviser, Mr. Collins Ugwu in Lagos, yesterday, saying that Uche Ekwunife should not have been the flag-bearer of the party in that election.
The statement read: “We are therefore aghast that Uche Ekwunife, who ordinarily should be sobered by this clear constitutional declaration given her political experience appeared unperturbed and unmindful of elementary party internal democracy, norms as evident in her obvious contemplation to re-run in the yet to be scheduled re-election as the candidate of our party, the PDP.
“We, therefore, emphasize that the party primaries by the PDP to select candidates for that election after the most rigorous processes for any senatorial zone, arrived at Senator Annie Okonkwo as the most popular and validly nominated candidate of the PDP.”
