Elections: 12 opposition parties back PDP in Enugu

Governors Nyesom Ezenwo Wike (Rivers), Dr. Samuel Ortom (Benue), and Engr. Seyi Makinde (Oyo) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Friday commended their colleague, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State, for his exemplary leadership qualities and role in galvanizing the people to ensure that the PDP continues to win elections in the state.

The G-5 Governors also praised Governor Ugwuanyi, the PDP’s candidate for Enugu North Senatorial District, for the love, solidarity, and support he has received from the people of the state, declaring that Ugwuanyi will lead the PDP to victory in the governorship, state assembly, and national assembly elections in Enugu State.

They described Governor Ugwuanyi as a great achiever, a good man and a dependable ally, who always stands by his words and believes in the principles of equity, justice and fairness which the G-5 Governors are pursuing to uphold and protect in the country.

The governors who made the remarks in their separate speeches during the colourful and well-attended flag off of the Enugu State PDP campaign ahead of the 2023 general election, held at Michael Okpara Square, Enugu, reiterated their solidarity and support for the PDP in the state, stressing that Enugu will remain PDP.

This came as 12 registered political parties in Enugu State at the campaign ground adopted and declared their support for all the PDP candidates in Enugu State in appreciation of Governor Ugwuanyi’s humility, good works, inclusive governance and partnership.

Led by Afam Ani of Actions Peoples Party (APP), the leaders of the political parties reassured Governor Ugwuanyi that they will give Dr Mbah the same support and cooperation they extended to him. Ani said that the governor has never disappointed them and thanked “God for the gift of Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.”

In his speech, Governor Wike of Rivers State said: “Our coming here today is to tell you that we are solidly behind Governor Ugwuanyi. Ugwuanyi is a dependable person. Ugwuanyi is somebody you can go to war with and your two eyes will be closed. Ugwuanyi is somebody that when he says yes, his yes is yes.

“And no wonder the entire people of Enugu State have shown it by coming to say my brothers, Ugwuanyi is our own, Mbah (PDP guber candidate) is our own.

“Let me assure you that we will all pray for him, the governorship candidate (Dr. Peter Mbah) and his deputy (Barr. Ifeanyi Ossai), our colleague (Ugwuanyi) who is going to the Senate and the other candidates for the Senatorial, House of Representatives and State Assembly elections in the state.

“We will all give the necessary support and make sure you emerge victorious in these elections coming on February 25 and March 11.”
