Why I Withdrew From Imo PDP Governorship Primaries - Ihedioha

PDP Would Easily Defeat APC In South-East – Ihedioha

by Echezona obinna

Former Imo State Governor Emeka Ihedioha believes the Peoples Democratic Party has a solid chance of defeating the All Progressives Congress in the South-East area in next year’s general election.

He stated that APC governments at all levels had squandered an opportunity to provide the South-East with strong leadership, which he claimed was the region’s fundamental desire.

The PDP chairman revealed this on Channels Television’s ‘Sunrise Daily’ on Friday, saying that with the APC’s failure to give essential leadership, the PDP will be able to exploit the gaps and recapture the region through the ballot box.

“The South-East people are respected across the globe. We have the best professionals in Europe and America, in various spheres of endeavour, be it in medicine, technology, engineering, science and arts, in law.

“In this country, we have shown that we lead the way in commerce. It is important that we are given the right atmosphere, the right climate to excel, to showcase our individual capacities and that is why we look for good governance.

“And that is what the APC has failed to give (South-East) so it is easy to dismiss the APC in the South-East,” Ihedioha said.
On the PDP internal crisis, Ihedioha stated the squabbles will be resolved through that party’s internal mechanism, discussions and consultations.

According to him, the presidential candidate of the party Atiku Abubakar is working to resolve issues and the PDP will give Nigerians the government they desire.

“We will get over this situation. Disagreements are normal in every home, in every family and so deliberate steps were being taken as a party. Calmly, we are resolving issues and by the time we come to the election, PDP will have put all its houses in order.

“I believe discussions and consultations are going on at various levels. I am very certain Knowing Atiku Abubakar very well, our issues will be resolved and the PDP Will give Nigerians the government they desire.”

On the issue of alleged bribery in the party, the former governor said, “I am not a member of the NWC of our party, but the opposition is trying to play up issues. what did you hear about the APC? It is a party that operates like a secret cult. We (PDP) are a democratic party.

“I do not know the facts of this matter but we have internal mechanisms of dealing with issues and of course, if anyone said he was paid and he said he is returning the money for sure they will deal with that, these are not the issues that will give us good governance.”
