The National chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ahmed Makarfi has assured that the party will give full support to its candidate, Mr Oseloka Obaze to win the governorship election of November 18th in Anambra State.

Makarfi who was in Onitsha for the flag off of the governorship campaign of the party's candidate said the party is today united, and that with unity, the party will take back Anambra and Nigeria, so that things will begin to work in the country again.

He commended members of the party for the unity that exists in Anambra, saying that it is high time they took their destiny in their hands by voting out the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA government in the state.

He said, "Anambra, I urge you to take your destiny in your hand. You are enterprising people, you must change this government and vote in PDP. We will continue to unite men and women of PDP in Anambra and Nigeria. PDP is a Nigerian party and it is the only party under which Nigeria is one and has no tribal disunity."

Makarfi said the party is now one family and will move from winning the Anambra governorship election to wining back the country in 2019 to return the country to a path of happiness and not one of lack and poverty as has been witnessed under the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The state caretaker chairman of the party and former minister of health, Prof ABC Nwosu in his speech called on Anambra people to connect the state to national grid through PDP in the forthcoming election.

He said Anambra has for too long been a lone state, being the only APGA controlled state in the country. He said such has denied the state of most democratic dividends that accrue from the centre.

The flag off campaign was attended by a huge crowd  and bigwig politicians from the party including; Celestine Omehia; former Rivers State governor, Senator Abdul Ningi, Dr Raymond Dokpesi, Dr Alex Ekwueme; former Vice President, Dayo Adeyeye, Mr Peter Obi; former governor of Anambra, Senator Ben Obi, Hon Emeka Ihedioha, former Deputy speaker of the House of Representative,  National Vice Chairman of PDP Southeast, Austin Umahi among others.
