Senator Samuel Nnaemeka Anyanwu has vowed to reposition the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ikeduru Local Government Area of Imo State.
He expressed optimism that doing so will reunite all aggrieved members and encourage interested persons to join the party.
Anyanwu, who represented Imo East District at the Senate between 2015 and 2019 said that while the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is busy creating hunger and starvation in the country, there is need for members of the main opposition party to unite to look for urgent solution to the menace.
Anyanwu disclosed at the weekend while addressing Ikeduru Peoples Democratic Party leaders at his country home, Amaimo.
According to him,
“My desire is to reposition the PDP in Ikeduru LGA as a major force in line with the saying that charity begins at home. We all know that Ikeduru is PDP, and we should not allow the influx of political prostitutes into APC to deter our desire to make PDP formidable in the local government. We can only do this by uniting everyone together”
“Today, our revered leader, Chief (Dr) Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu is retiring from active politics having attained 79 years of age. It will be a thing of joy for all of us to team up in solidarity to celebrate him as a mark of respect to a foremost Nationalist of Ikeduru-Imo extraction in this period of his 79 years birthday anniversary.”
“We should not allow his good intention to quit active politics to affect PDP in Ikeduru since he has produced young leaders like all of us” he stated.
Senator Anyanwu further assured them of his commitment to always invest in the party not only at the LGA or Zonal levels, but the state at large, pointing out that such idea will go a long way to revive and sustain the peace existing in the party presently.
