As key political parties and their members especially the governorship aspirants continue to strategize, restructure and refocus their membership bases ahead the 2021 governorship tussle in Anambra state, authorities of the Labour Party (LP) in the state have pledged to flush out other major political parties in the state

LP cited lies, deceit and poor performances in terms of provision of dividends of democracy as some of the major reasons to justify the stamping out of the so-called major political parties like All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and even the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) out of the surface of Anambra state.

National Chairman of LP, Alh Abdulkadir Abdulsalam who disclosed this in Awka, during the election and inauguration of news executive members of the party in the state, charged the electorate in the state to speak with their votes by voting out the debilitating lies and deceits of APGA, PDP and APC.

According to Abdulsalam, “Anambra state will no longer be a zone of on-the-air television-show development, but will be turned into a zone of practical visible and tangible developments unlike what we have seen in the last two decades under the PDP, APGA and APC leaderships”.

Also addressing party delegates drawn from the 21 councils of the state, Abdulsalam pointed out that LP remains the only party with human symbol and multiple membership in every Nigerian home, hence was now poised to stand up against the two decades old worn-out lies and inactivity of the premier political parties.

“Because LP is focused, disciplined and united as a family, we are going to lead the way in Anambra state. We have just put together a formidable result-orientated executive that has vowed to turn things around the distraught citizens of the state who have been wearied by decades of political lies, deceit and deception by the APC, APGA and PDP”.

“We are coming with people of integrity, ability and industry who have served the nation and humanity in various areas of life who are daily trooping in and picking our membership cards”.

Exhorting the party’s frontline governorship aspirant, Group Capt Nnamdi Nnoruka (retd), the national chairman described him as a man of ability, zeal and inviolable industry who understands the complexity and idiosyncrasy of Anambra polity. That the party has no doubt that when he gets the people’s mandate as governor he shall perform well.

Nnoruka who appeared to have opened the floodgate of top ex-military officers entry into the party in preparation for his governorship bid said that LP government in the state was going to execute programs and requests generated direct by the people, not by elites. He said he was elated by the presence of highly distinguished personalities, moving into the newly reinvigorated party.

The governorship aspirant commended the peaceful disposition of the delegates who joyously elected the new state executive and appealed to them to join hands with Emeh leadership to take the party to every home, assisting also with constructive criticism, suggestions and ideas until victory was achieved in 2021.

He said his telephone line would remain open to all round the clock, as well as his gate for opinions, suggestions, advice and criticism.

In his inaugural remark Chief Ugochukwu Emeh who was elected alongside Col Victor Ndulue (retd) as chairman and Secretary respectively vowed to lead LP to its first governorship victory in the South East geopolitical zone, especially in the face of mass disenchantment by the citizens who were already tired of the cheap worn out rhetorical lies of those in the saddle.

No fewer than five top ex-military officers and other professionals attended the congress including Brig Gen Arinze Chuka Ebenebe, Navy Commodore Emma Okechukwu Enemor, Capt Nnoruka, Col Ndulue and Col Buddeh Okafor amongst others.

Some members of Gov Willie Obiano’s cabinet attended the congress, but refused to tell reporters whether they have decamped to LP or were just on observation of the congress.

Officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC led by Mr Samuel Nimeh, Nkiru Gibson and Reginald Onyeukwu were on hand to monitor the proceedings of the congress which held at the Eastend Hotels, Awka. They expressed satisfaction with the process.
