Agulanna remains our candidate, Imo PDP insists 

by OkeomaNews

Ahead of this weekend’s presidential and National Assembly elections, the Imo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has insisted that Albert Agulanna remained its candidate for Ngor Okpala/ Aboh Mbaise federal constituency.

A statement issued by the party’s spokesperson in the state, Collins Opuruozor, on Thursday described as false the speculation that Agulanna’s name had been removed from the portal of the Independent National Electoral commission as the party’s candidate in the federal constituency.

The party therefore urged the people of the area to come out en mass on Saturday to cast their votes for Agulanna.

The statement read “The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo State affirms that Dr. Albert Agulanna remains the candidate of the Party for Aboh Mbaise/ Ngor Okpala Federal Constituency. 

“Our Party, therefore, dismisses tales about the removal of Dr. Agulanna’s by INEC, and describes such fake news as height of desperation by enemies who are already aware that Dr. Agulanna’s victory at the polls on Saturday is cast on concrete.

“For the avoidance of doubt, there was never a time the name of Dr. Agulanna was removed by INEC. In short, the final list of qualified candidates as published by INEC contains the name of Dr. Agulanna as our House of Representatives candidate for Aboh Mbaise/Ngor Okpala Federal Constituency.

“It becomes deeply worrisome that certain elements would go to town with fake news as part of their attempts to deny the people of Aboh Mbaise/Ngor Okpala Federal Constituency the quality representation which Dr. Agulanna stands to deliver.

“Following from that, our Party calls on security agencies to tame the menace of fake news by rising to the occasion to arrest and prosecute those whose stock in trade is such destructive venture.

“Imo PDP urges the people of Aboh Mbaise and Ngor Okpala to turn out overwhelmingly on Saturday, February 25th, 2023 to vote Dr. Agulanna and all the other PDP candidates, so as to redeem Nigeria and rev up the development of their Federal Constituency.”
