The spokesperson for the Anambra State’s Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential Management Committee, Uloka Chibuike, has claimed that no presidential candidate has more acceptance and support in Anambra State than Atiku Abubakar.
Chibuike alleged in a statement that Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, adopted a deceitful and manipulative strategy to gain acceptance from youths in the state.
He further claimed that the people have abandoned Obi and accepted Atiku Abubakar after realizing his weakness and unpopularity in different regions of the country.
His statement reads in part: “With the 2023 presidential election a few months away, there’s no doubt that Anambra State is gradually returning to the status quo with the Peoples Democratic Party, with Atiku Abubakar’s victory more probable. No presidential candidate has more support and acceptance in Anambra State than the former Vice President.”
Peter Obi’s strategy, he claimed, was based on “manipulating our youths and using lies, deceit, and blackmail.”
He further articulated: “Our people have abandoned Peter Obi and his endeavour to retrogress the South East politically as they gradually come to the realization that throwing away our votes won’t be best for the survival of Ndi-Igbo in the country’s politics.”
