Enugu PDP members reaffirm support for Atiku
Members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Obingwa Local Government Area of Enugu State have declared their support for Abubakar Atiku, the party’s presidential candidate. Incidentally, the supporters are kinsmen of Governor Ikpeazu, who had withdrawn support for Atiku.
The PDP chairman for the local government, Seth Agomuo, said Atiku need to be supported having emerged the party’s presidential candidate at the primaries.
“As a party chairman, and a true party man here in Obingwa, I want to clarify something. As far as I’m concerned, and a true party man, hence candidates have emerged after contested primary elections, such candidates now belong to the party and the party will support them.
“That’s the truth. I’m a true party man. Whether you love the candidate or hate him, that doesn’t matter as long as he emerged from a primary election conducted by the party.
“So, as far as I’m concerned and as far as I’m the PDP Chairman in Obingwa, we shall only vote for PDP candidates from Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to the Senate, House Representatives, Governor and the State House of Assembly.
“We are PDP and that’s our stand. We’re Igbos, but our party comes first before any other thing,” Agomuo was quoted as saying.
