Anambra State Director General of the Atiku- Okowa Presidential Campaign Committee, Professor Obiora Okonkwo, has said no smaller than ten political parties in the State have collapsed their structures in support of the People Democratic Party( PDP), Presidential aspirant, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, in the forthcoming 2023 Presidential election.
Okonkwo divulged this to correspondents shortly after the presidential management committee meeting held at the campaign headquarters in Awka, on Friday.
He said the ten opposition political parties collapsed their structures in support of Atiku/ Okowa ticket because, they knew that PDP will win the state and the South East as always and that Anambra is so far leading other states in the region; Abia, Enugu, Imo and Ebonyi in the quest to deliver and recover Nigeria.
He said the meeting was to ensure final preparations for the polls.
According to the DG, “ Anambra is confident of triumph. We’re a liberal people who understand the dynamics of our politics and budding democracy.
Apart from the thousands of opposition party members who have defected to the PDP in Anambra since we began spreading the ideology of rescue and recovery, another ten (10) political parties have adopted Atiku Abubakar and Senator Ifeanyichukwu Okowa as their presidential and vice presidential aspirants.
We’re confident in the recovery program, the pledge of true federalism, the stability of the nation’s economy and security, and other important policies that Atiku Abubakar has presented to Nigerians, particularly in the South- East.
Hence, we’re committed to their success in the forthcoming presidential elections, as the PDP party will continue to win as always in Anambra, ” Professor Okonkwo said.
The committee was equally assured that the present hardships that Nigerians are facing will become history in the first week of Atiku Abubakar being president, as he’ll ensure people- oriented policies and governance.
Okonkwo assured that the Atiku-Okowa ticket in Anambra State has continued to enjoy the support of the entire population of the state and was confident that similar support would translate to votes and a triumph for the PDP in the end.
