MAZI Chidi Orjika, a chieftain of the APC has charged the party to safeguard the delegates list in the face of what he alleged as surreptitious moves by some aspirants to compromise the list.
Noting what he claimed as moves by some he described as party flag buyers to use money to grab the ticket, Orjika, a supporter of Dr. Tony Nwoye urged the party to go the whole length to protect the list from being compromised.
He said:“Every aspirant must test his might and wealth in the open field and the delegates must not be denied of their rights and usurped of their powers to freely elect the party’s flag bearer. More so, one notorious flag-buyer and primary election evasive politician has been suitably cowed by the huge outcry by the party members who now aware of his dubious antics and are outraged at the way things have turned out and have now vowed to vote with their feet. We call the leadership of the party to ensure that the Delegates’ list remain unharmed and to provide an open, free and fair playing ground for all the Aspirants to test their might and popularity.
“Finally, it is important to note that Dr. Nwoye has remained very trustworthy and resolute in his firm belief that the electorates/delegates must be allowed to harness their grassroots capacity and use the opportunities of this election to exert their collective influence and effectiveness in determining who they give their mandate willingly. APC Delegates and Ndi Anambra in general are called upon to be weary of the political Ameoba, Party flag-buyers and ticket hijackers that are hell bent in usurping their powers of free choice in a democratic setting.”
