ANAMBRA: PDP Attacks APGA, APC Over Destruction Of GEJ’s Posters, Billboards by LRNZH(m): 12:33pm On Jan 27, 2015

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra State has cried out to Governor Willie Obiano and the agents of his administration over what it described as the continuous vandalism, defacing and destruction of the campaign posters, billboards and other materials of its candidates, including those of President Goodluck Jonathan, in some parts of the state.

The party, according to the leader of the PDP Contact and Mobilisation
Committee of the presidential campaign council in the state, Mr. Ken Emeakayi, has already formally petitioned the security agencies including the police, the State Security Service (SSS), the army, the navy and the state governor, among others over the matter.

Emeakayi, who is one of the leaders of the party in the state, noted that they chose the part of honour, discipline and peace by severally restraining its members who have been rearing to react and go on the offensive, because the PDP is a disciplined party with cherished codes and ethics.

He said the party has given the state government the benefit of the doubt to call its officials to order to avoid a situation where it would lead to an open conflict.

Emeakayi added that they were aware that antagonistic moves were to cause disaffection and anger among other candidates for a fight to break out.


The PDP chieftain cautioned all political actors in the state to endeavour to play by the rules, eschew thuggery and use of foul language against each other, noting that politics remain an honourable game of wits, words and number, where only those with attestable character and superior points of argument prevail.

He said: “We have received several complaints from most of our candidates that members of the All Progressives Grand Alliance(APGA) and All Progressives Congress(APC) have been destroying, defacing and vandalising PDP billboards, posters and handbills and other campaign materials in parts of the state...”

He wondered the state of mind of those who decide not to go on campaign tours to the electorate but devote time to plan on how to attack the popular PDP candidates, especially Mr. President.


He therefore urged the governor and other party leaders to step into the matter immediately and restore sanity thereto.

On the new bye-law by the state House of Assembly on campaigns by those they saw as not among the candidates whose names were published by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), who have pending cases in courts on their nomination, Emeakayi described the law as a waste of effort by those behind it.

He said the move was a clear mockery of what a legislator should be doing because the matter was ultra vires the powers of a state assembly, since laws guiding elections in Nigeria were federal laws. Hence the state assemblies have no powers to legislate over same. That this shows that the state Assembly acts arbitrarily without sound research and legal counsel.

Again, he said that there was no where in the Electoral Act where it was written that anyone whose name was not published by INEC should not campaign for the election if he has an issue pending. He said that after all the PDP has forwarded names of her candidates who were well known.

Emeakayi accused Obiano’s APGA of being very afraid of the top-of-the-shelf candidates PDP presented and then resorted to acts of brigandage and intimidation.

He asserted that no one can ever intimidate any candidate or member of the PDP anywhere for whatever reason.

Yesso. Anambrarians know that GEJ has been deceiving them with the phantom 2nd Niger bridge.

Those are people who av a sense of pride and calculative,4get all the noise PDP have been making about sweeping anambra.
Am not ashamed to say that anambrarians would most likely flow where d power would likely reside.
Obiano is not foolish not to have taken APGA into PDP like the foolish obi would have wanted.He is acting smart and his body language is that of a man who would rather anambrarians vote their choice in d presidential but APGA in d assembly elections.
From feelers am getting, GEJ would lose substantial votes because of (1)low turnout and(2) more people would most likely vote APC this time around because of reduced rigging due to d absence of a totally biased peter obi and the presence of a more neutral obiano.
GMB looking "gooder" by the day.

When you tell people here that Anambra won't give GEJ same % like they did in 2011 because the citizens feel disenchanted with his tenure and nothing to show for it despite their massive vote for him, they'll call you names even if they don't live 100km close to the state.
