Abuja - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is confident its congresses slated for Anambra State this week would enable it wrestle control of the region.
The party is scheduled to hold Ward, Local Government and State Congresses.
“Following enquiries by our members, especially those in Anambra State, the National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) wishes to clarify that its decision to fix the Ward, Local Government and State Congresses in Anambra state this week is in obedience to a court directive to this effect,” National Secretary Prof. Adewale Oladipo, said.
He said the NWC believes that the congresses would help to strengthen PDP structures in the state and pave the way for the final retake of Anambra State “by our great party” in the next gubernatorial election.

The All Progressives Grand Alliance wields power in the state. PDP last held power between 2003 and 2006 with Governor Chris Ngige at the helm.
Meanwhile, Oladipo assured all party members in the state that in line with its commitment to internal democracy, every strategy had been put in place to ensure transparent, credible, free and fair process at all levels of the exercise in the state.
“The NWC enjoins all our members in Anambra state, particularly key stakeholders to work together to ensure that conducive atmosphere is created for hitch-free congresses as the party would not hesitate to apply the law on any violation of its constitution,” said Oladipo.
He said the national leadership solicits the cooperation and understanding of relevant stakeholders, particularly the security agencies to ensure smooth conducts of the congresses at the ward, local government and state levels.
