OHO Press Release: 17/30 of 17 September, 2017Statement Attributable to Mr. Oseloka H. Obaze, PDP Governorship candidate on the Decision of the NCC to Uphold the Election that Produced Him as the Candidate of the party.
I am elated and thankful that the National Caretaker Committee of our great party, PDP, has upheld the outcome of the 28 August 2017 primary elections that produced me as the Candidate of the PDP for the November 18, 2017 Governorship Election in Anambra State.
I thank God for this development. I salute the leadership of the party for listening carefully to all expressed concerns and dealing exhaustively with all related petitions before arriving at its findings. I salute all those involved in the ongoing conciliation efforts. Such due process measures reaffirm the democratic ideals and the vibrancy of the internal workings of our party and the leadership’s commitment to charting a new course.
I acknowledged that some residual challenges remain. Our politics, party and processes are not perfect. As such, any perceived shortcomings of our electoral processes cannot be ignored. Once again, I am through this medium reaching out and asking my fellow aspirants who feel aggrieved to engage with me in constructive dialogue. I believe that prevailing differences can be easily resolved through dialogue and consultations. My message has always been consistent; the PDP umbrella is large enough to accommodate us all. As such, let us set aside our differences and work together to achieve victory for our great party come 18 November, 2017.
We should consider the ramifications of PDP not wining the forthcoming elections. We certainly do not wish for Ndi Anambra to spend the next four years of their lives as they have over the past three years. Anambra deserves better and must forge ahead with the much-needed human capital development and good governance, which our people yearn for.
