The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday expressed optimism that it has what it takes to win the November 6, 2021, Anambra State governorship election, declaring that ‘the party represents the hope for the state to rebuild and realise its full potential.’
The PDP pointed out that the manifest dearth of electoral activities in other parties in the state has shown that they have already given up ahead of the November election.
The party asserted that the ‘sweeping victory of the PDP in the recent Abia State National Assembly bye-election has signaled that the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have lost all foothold in the Southeast region.’

The party National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, stated this while playing host to a coalition of Anambra youths under the aegis of Anambra Youth Initiative For Good Governance, in Abuja, noting that the assemblage of leading aspirants, as well as the surge of the people to the PDP, has clearly indicated their resolve to elect the next governor of the state on the platform of the PDP.
According to Ologbondiyan, ‘The reality of the direction which the November 6 governorship election in Anambra State will take is already manifesting.
‘Anambra people are very industrious, resourceful, and inventive, and they have collectively realized that they can only achieve their full potential on the platform of the PDP.
‘This is particularly, given our robust manifesto and wealth creation principles of inclusiveness, transparency, accountability, massive infrastructural development, and empowerment of the people.’
The national publicity secretary of the PDP said across Nigeria presently, ‘it is only PDP governors that are inaugurating legacy projects. From Rivers State to Bauchi State, Sokoto State to Bayelsa State, Akwa-Ibom State to Benue State, Abia State, Adamawa State, Edo State, Oyo State, Cross River State, Zamfara State, Enugu State, Taraba State to Delta State, projects upon projects are being unveiled on a daily basis in line with the manifesto of our great party.
‘While other parties are struggling under the weight of unfulfilled promises and misrule, our states are opening new development and investment frontiers in critical sectors, including agriculture, aviation, energy, power, healthcare, education, real estate manufacturing, and massive industrialization.’
According to Ologbondiyan, ‘This is why Ndi Anambra has firmly resolved to rally on our platform to revamp and move their state towards realising its full potential in all spheres of life.’
Speaking during the visit, the National Convener of the coalition, Okechukwu Umeh, restated the confidence of the Anambra people in the PDP, adding that all hands are already on deck to ensure the victory of the party in the November state election.
