Anambra State Director General of the Atiku-Okowa Presidential Campaign Committee, Professor Obiora Okonkwo, has said no fewer than ten political parties in the State have collapsed their structures in support of the People Democratic Party (PDP), Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, in the forthcoming 2023 Presidential election.
Okonkwo disclosed this to Journalists 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 rescue and recover Nigeria.
He said the meeting was to ensure final preparations for the polls.
According to the DG, “Anambra is confident of victory. We are a liberal people who understand the dynamics of our politics and nascent democracy.
“Aside from the thousands of opposition party members who have defected to the PDP in Anambra since we began spreading the gospel of rescue and recovery, another ten (10) political parties have adopted Atiku Abubakar and Senator Ifeanyichukwu Okowa as their presidential and vice presidential candidates.
“We are confident in the recovery agenda, the promise 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 are 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 will 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 such support would translate to votes and a victory for the PDP in the end.
