Briefing journalists in Awka on Sunday, Anambra State PDP Chairman, Ndubuisi Nwobu, said the Party had bright chances in the 2019 poll in the state considering the quality of people picking the party’s various nomination forms.

Nwobu said others who had picked the party’s nomination forms for the senatorial race in the state were a one-time security adviser to the Anambra State Government, Chief Chuma Nzeribe; and former governorship aspirants, Alex Obiogbolu and Obinna Uzor.

Nwobu said the party would field candidates for the 11 House of Representatives seats in the state and the 30 House of Assembly seats in the general elections in 2019.


The PDP chairman said the likes of Ubah had a track record of positive political dispositions in the state and was optimistic that his decision to run on the party’s platform would restore lasting peace and victory to the party.

Nwobu said that Ubah was known as the godfather of Anambra politics since 1999 and had been sponsoring candidates for political positions both in the PDP and other political parties.

He said that Ubah had in the past had political battles with two former governors of the state, Dr. Chinwoke Mbadinuju and Chris Ngige, over appointments and other political patronages, from which he came out strong.


NAN also reports that business moguls, Ifeanyi Ubah and Nicholas Ukachukwu, are contesting for the same Anambra South Senatorial District ticket on the platform of the APGA.

NAN recalls that a former governor of Imo State, Ikedi Ohakim, had penultimate week said that 15 Igbo billionaires had been mobilised to sponsor Odumegwu-Ojukwu’s widow in the poll.

Ohakim made the disclosure in Ekwulobia in Aguata LGA of Anambra during Ojukwu’s formal declaration of interest for the senatorial seat.

He said: “The Igbo will not stand and watch anybody intimidate Ojukwu’s widow in any circumstance.
“We shall match her opponents’ strength for strength and cash for cash.”

NAN reports that in the just concluded APGA retreat held in Awka, the Anambra State capital, the Board of Trustee Chairman and Anambra Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, said that the party primaries would be free and fair.

Obiano urged all interested political contestants in all the elective posts to get prepared to face their constituents during the party primary.
