Sen. Stella Oduah, an aspirant in the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra State, has threatened withdrawal from the race, alleging irregularities in Peoples Democratic Party’s build-up to the primary election.
Oduah made this known while briefing newsmen on Friday in Abuja.
She said that the Ward congress of the party held on Wednesday to elect three delegates per ward was fraught with “irregularities and sabotage’’.
According to her, as if the case of the hijacking was not enough, the ultimate result of the ward congress which was submitted by the Secretary of the panel was switched for a doctored result.
“The implication of this is to subject loyal party faithful to stressful and rancorous primary to weaken and sap the strength of candidate that will emerge from the exercise.
“It should be recalled that this has been the reason our party has been losing gubernatorial elections in Anambra,’’ she said.
The lawmaker claimed that only her and few other members of the party in the state remained faithful during the turbulence in the party that led to litigations at the national level
