A pressure group, the Anambra PDP Grassroots Coalition, APGC, has welcome the Order of the Anambra State High Court which barred Valentine Ozigbo from parading himself as People's Democratic Party, PDP candidate and the PDP and Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC from displaying Ozigbo as their candidate for November 6 Anambra governorship election.

This was contained in a statement issued in Awka by Chairman of the APGC, Mr Olisa Eze.  He urged the court to inquire into "why and how a party of almost 3,000 lawful delegates from the ward to LGA to State Executives and statutory delegates could be disenfranchised and reduced to a randomly and whimsically fabricated list of 197 accomplices and sympathisers of a cabal of newly arrived carpet baggers from another party."

"It would have been the death knell of grassroots politicking in Anambra State if duly elected party executives and delegates could be cast aside from the process like garbage and a cabal of outsiders can pay their way in Wadata Plaza to impose a weak, unknown and unacceptable clone on the party without recourse",  the statement said. 

APGC called on PDP members in Anambra State to come out enmasse to support Senator Ugochukwu Uba, a "seasoned political scientist, veteran administrator, legislator and grassroots politician who at personal expense and risks is taking on the battle to restore grassroots democracy and elective principles to the PDP."

The Statement further said: "Our newly arrived mandate seekers might not know this, but the slogan of PDP, 'Power to the People' means what it says, mainly that it is the people who own the party not the Executives.

"It is therefore a thing of joy and motivation for the judiciary being the last hope of the common man to put a pause to this charade whereby a gubernatorial aspirant who procured 62 votes in a secretly compiled list of committee of friends to lay claim to the candidature over a duly elected majority vote winner in a duly organised Congress sanctioned by court at which hundreds of votes were cast and the winner scored 275" .

"We congratulate the courage of the Anambra judiciary to right this wrong after giving all sides equal opportunity and fair hearing to make their case". 

"Never again will Anambra PDP be a minority or stranger in power in a state in which it is the majority party on the streets. Never again shall PDP be hijacked by selfish absentee landlords who are acting in manners of liquidators working against the electoral viability of the party. They did same when they imposed Obaze in 2017 to suit the whims and caprice of a former Governor forcing the authentic PDP unable and unprepared to work for her victory and PDP paid dearly for this with an overwhelming APGA victory: 21 LGAs over 21 LGAs.  

"This time, the grassroots would not be silenced and the courts are the new streets where the grassroots of the party have to preserve our legal rights to choose our own candidates and leaders." 

"Victory is assured where men and women, young and old are prepared to defend the PDP Constitution which provides the list of those eligible to vote in the election of party candidates. To do otherwise is to condemn PDP into a technical defeat from the onset."
