Imo Guber: PDP governorship candidate denies working for APC
Senator Samuel Anyamwu the PDP governorship candidate for the November 11 general election has denied working for the reelection of Governor Hope Uzodimma of the APC.
Reacting to a press statement by former secretary of PDP, Ray Emeana, who alleged that the PDP candidate has struck a deal with the incumbent governor to take over from him in 2027, Senator Anyamwu said he was in the race to win and return Imo state to its glorious days of peace and security.
According to Senator Anyanwu, “It is on the record that the current realities on ground in the state is the massive adoption and endorsement of Senator Samuel Nnaemeka Anyanwu as a consensus Governorship candidate in the November 11 election by market women, youth groups, motorcycle, Keke/taxi operators, socio-political groups, Christian Organizations and Traditional institutions.
“Not comfortable with the wide acceptance of the PDP Candidate, Hope Uzodinma, his team and the escaped former PDP officials are doing everything possible not minding its legal implications to wittle down the popularity of Senator Anyanwu in the state.”
“One of such game plans is exactly what Ray Emeana peddled, including others yet to be falsely disclosed in the nearest future. Those who know Ray Emeana can attest that he can do anything especially, when money is involved. Our assurance to Imo people is that, the PDP Governorship Candidate will secure the state from the stranglehold of APC misrule, intimidation, harassment and illegal arrests which has gradually destroyed the state and turned it to a battle ground for non state actors.
“Our stand is that despite all the misleading falsehoods now and in the future against the PDP Candidate, what cannot be denied is that Senator Samuel Anyanwu and Rt Hon Jones Onyereri are out to make Imo safe again by ending killings, kidnappings and thuggery in the state.”
