by OkeomaNews

The National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party Samuel Anyanwu, popularly known as Samdaddy, has commended the immediate past Governor of the state, Emeka Ihedioha, for withdrawing from the governorship primary of the party in Imo State scheduled for April 15.

Ihedioha, had on Tuesday announced his withdrawal from the party’s governorship primary election, this was after he had bought the nomination and expression of interest forms and cleared by the party for the primary election.

The development now left Samdaddy as the only governorship aspirant of the party in the state.

Reacting to Ihedioha’s decision to quit from the race, Samdaddy said that the ex governor’s spirit of “sportsmanship” should be commended.

A statement issued by the Director Media and Publicity of Samdaddy’s Divine Mandate political structure, Sunny Ndukwu, said that Ihedioha’s withdrawal from the race shouldn’t be seen as a sign of “weakness”.

The statement enjoined Ihedioha, his Rebuild Imo Political structure and all members of the party in the state to join hands with Samdaddy to win the state during the November 11, governorship election in the state.

The statement read “the Divine Mandate Movement, ((DMM), a formidable political structure of the National Secretary of PDP, Sen Samuel Anyanwu has commended former governor of Imo State, Rt Hon Emeka Ihedioha for his withdrawal from the Imo State Governorship primary election of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“We thank H/E Rt Hon Emeka Nkem Ihedioha for taking the bold and courageous step towards rebuilding and reuniting the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Imo State. 

“His decision to throw in the towel is not a sign of weakness but a move geared towards ensuring that our great party, PDP reclaims the seat of power come November 11, 2023 Guber Election.

“While we advise party faithful, leaders and critical stakeholders not to take the decision of Rt Hon Emeka Ihedioha for granted but view it as a difficult decision any leader could take at this critical moment, which goes a long way to prove that Rt Hon Emeka Ihedioha is a true sportsman who puts the interest of the party first.

“The Divine Mandate Movement seizes this opportunity to extend its olive branch to members and critical stakeholders of the Ihedioha Rebuild Imo Team as well as the Ihedioha Reelection Movement for partnership in the project of reclaiming Imo Douglas House come November 2023.

“In view of this development, the leadership of Divine Mandate Movement calls  on our PDP members to remain committed and focused, as we work towards uniting the party ahead of  the Governorship polls. “
