Chairman of the PDP National Campaign Council of the Anambra gubernatorial election and Abia State Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has promised to regroup governors of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the party faithful to ensure a peaceful election in Anambra and victory for its candidate, Valentine Ozigbo.
Ikpeazu made the promise at a strategy meeting of the PDP National Campaign Council for Anambra Governorship Election held in his Umuobiakwa Country Home in Abia ahead of the Anambra election.
In a statement made available to reporters signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Onyebuchi Ememanka, Ikpeazu charged the people of Anambra to rise to the challenge of ensuring that the PDP wins the upcoming polls.
The governor said a win for the PDP in the election would mark a turning point in the country and the hope that a greater Nigeria would emerge again under the party.
He noted that the PDP had not won election into Anambra Government House for a long time, adding that this had led to despondency among the people but said the story has to change this time.
