PDP’s Gov Primary Election In Anambra, ‘A Total Illegality’ – Ifeanyi Ubah
A governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the Anambra State governorship election, Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, has described the party’s primary election that elected Oseloka Obaze as the party’s candidate an unlawful process.
Speaking with journalists yesterday in Abuja, Ubah said he had exhausted all the internal mechanisms available for conflict resolution without success, before his decision to head for court.
“We will seek redress in court. Four of us the aspirants had said if the party chose any us that we will support that person so long as it is not Obaze. So as it stands now we are left with no option than to proceed to court to seek redress.
“The unlawful process that took place on August 28, 2017 in the guise of primary election has not only jettisoned the appropriate electoral college, it has also jettisoned the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999, the Electoral Act 2010, the constitution of the PDP 2012 and the PDP Electoral Guidelines as amended.
“It is a total illegality, nullity, sham and an insult to the sensibilities of every faithful PDP member natonwide, right-thinking Anambrarian and by extension, Nigerian.
“In the quest for justice, I submit myself to fight this illegality and injustice for my sake as well as that of anyone who aspires to contest under the party’s platform and I hope that justice will prevail in the end.
“I will, in subsequent media chats and as things unfold, reveal more information on the sham and complete illegality that was tagged a primary election conducted by the PDP,” he said.
