Imo Gov’ship: Ihedioha thrice unlucky, I’ll be PDP consensus candidate – Sen Anyanwu

by Our Reporter
The People’s Democratic Party’s National Secretary, Senator Sam Anyanwu on Tuesday said the issue of consensus ahead of the Imo state governorship election scheduled to hold on 11th November, 2023 is ruled out except Hon. Emeka Ihedioha steps down for him.
Speaking shortly with journalists after he was screened by the Senator Gabriel Suswam led screening committee for Imo state governorship election, Senator Anyanwu said the Imolites are already agitating for a new person that will give them sense of belonging.
The two aspirants currently contesting for the governorship were screened for the Imo State Governorship Primary Election at the party’s national secretariat, Wadata, Abuja.
“Yes, I have been screened, it’s almost take a bow and go , because I have passed through different screenings, before becoming national secretary, I have served in different capacities  I have been a two term local government chairman, two term state House of Assembly member and a senator. I also ran for governor with Emeka Ihedioha in 2019.
“So, I passed through the screening, even the panel said they don’t have any issue with me. Today, I even let them know what they don’t even know before about tax clearance. Tax clearance can be forge out there, but I told them to always demand for the receipt.
“We are only two in the governorship race, Emeka Ihedioha and myself.
“On the possibility of consensus, the only consensus is when he steps down for me because he has contested on three occasions. That is why people of Imo state are agitating. And how can you give a person ticket for three times, so, this time, let a new person go.”
