I am not leaving PDP – Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu

by on February 10, 2017


Amidst growing speculations of decamping of political stalwart, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, Imo State chapter of the Peoples’ Democratic Par­ty (PDP) has debunked the allegation, saying it is spread by members of the All Progressive Con­gress (APC) to save its rejected name.

The disclosure was made in a press release signed by factional Publicity Secretary of the party, Damian Oparah in Ow­erri, the Imo State capi­tal.

According to him, “It is foolhardy for some mis­chievous elements to wake up one morning and start insinuating that he is leaving the PDP for any other party, especial­ly a party that has been rejected by Nigerians. The whole rumour is baseless, petty, and borne out of desperation.”

He alleged that there were some APC mem­bers who having seen Chief Iwuanyanwu’s ris­ing leadership profile, are now desperate to use his image to launder APC’s fast diminishing popu­larity, saying APC stands rejected by the elector­ates and that no amount of name dropping can save the party in 2019.

Oparah said Chief Iwuanyanwu, as a mem­ber of the board of trus­tees and national caucus of the PDP, has shown capacity in uniting and running the affairs of PDP in Nigeria, Imo and Ikeduru Local Govern­ment Area.

Oparah admonished those peddling the de­camping rumour to stop because Chief Iwuanyan­wu has no intention of leaving the party he built and nurtured for what he called ‘any disorgan­ised, disenchanted, diso­rientated, and morally bankrupt political party whose duty is to deceive the people’.

He expressed hopes that PDP will assume office in 2019 to restore ‘what the locust has eaten’.
