The statutory and ad-hoc delegates to the forthcoming primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Enugu State have unanimously assured Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, who is also the leader of the party in the state and the South East geo-political zone, of their 100 percent loyalty and support in respect of his political decisions regarding the choice of candidates that will fly PDP flags in the 2023 general elections.

“We are here to reaffirm our collective stance that where you ask us to go is where we will go. We equally came to reiterate that we are one family waiting to follow your directions. Just say a word and consider it done. We have 100 percent loyalty for you”, the Speaker added.
Also speaking, the PDP Zonal Chairman, Mr. Nwafor maintained that the delegates are solidly behind the governor and came to “show you our solidarity and that we are with you”, saying: “Where you ask us to go is where we will go”.
