Anambra State PDP Governorship aspirant Rt. Hon. Chuma Nzeribe has declared withdrawal from PDP governorship primaries going on today in Awka.
In an official letter sent to 9News Nigeria which was titled “Chuma Nzeribe chides PDP NWC for fiddling with Delegates list,” Hon Chuma Nzeribe has scolded the PDP National electoral committee accusing them of altering party delegates lists.
The letter signed by the aspirant reads in part: “Hon Chuma Nzeribe chides the PDP headquarters for yet again altering party Delegates list today even as the primary election process is underway.”
The House of Reps member said that he is expressing his sympathy and support for the 3,000 disenfranchised PDP Ward & Ad-Hoc Delegates due to unnecessary litigations.
“And I express my sympathy and support for the 3,000 disenfranchised PDP Ward & Ad-Hoc Delegates due to unnecessary litigations.”
“I shall therefore immediately withdraw from this contest. PDP HQ should note that choosing a Governorship candidate with mere 200 super delegates is not the best but as a loyal party man I shall back any chosen PDP flag-bearer.”
“Thank you, please! Rt. Hon Chuma Nzeribe”
Similarly, Dr Tony Nwoye and Barrister Emeka Etiaba (SAN) have earlier today declared that they have stepped down from the ongoing PDP governorship primaries citing nullification of the delegates by a High court.
According to 9News Nigeria Anambra State correspondent present at the venue of the primaries, the two candidates declared that they are stepping down from the primaries because there have been numerous court judgements and disenfranchisement of statutory and ad-hoc delegates.
In another report earlier on Saturday 26th June 2021, 9News Nigeria had reported that erstwhile Anambra State PDP chairman, Ndubuisi Nwobu has obtained an order nullifying the Super Delegates list that should vote for the governorship aspirants today.
