One of the governorship aspirants in Monday’s primary election of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, John Emeka, has withdrawn from the race for the ticket of the party in the November 18 Anambra election.

He withdrew from the race as delegates commenced accreditation at three designated locations in Awka, the state capital.

Mr. Emeka in a press statement cited irregularities in the party’s delegates’ list for his decision to back out of the race.

The aspirant, who did not state those responsible for the ‘mutilation of the list,’ simply announced his withdrawal from the contest.

There have been accusations and counter accusations over the party’s delegates list, with some aspirants complaining of the party’s ranks being infiltrated by members of other political parties.

PDP would in today’s primary feature six aspirants including Alex Obiogbolu, Ifeanyi Ubah, Oseloka Obaze, Linda Ikpeazu and Stella Oduah.

Meanwhile, the accreditation of delegates is ongoing at three designated centres: Emaus house, J-Jumac Hotel and Alexandria hotel. Each of the locations will accredit delegates from the three senatorial zones of the state.

Voting is expected to commence as soon as accreditation is completed in a few hours.

    Such ants could leave the party. PDP must beware of molars. APC had a smooth outing; that is how it should be. We want peace in all the parties.

    • Sincere-Voice

      Pdp is a home irregularities, imposition and money sharing. That’s what they believe in. Expect anything else and you will be disappointed.

      • Frank Bassey

        And APC …

        • Sincere-Voice

          APC for now is by far better than PDP. Apc did the same primary and it was deviod of drama. PDP can never change.

          • Frank Bassey

            APC? YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING.

          • Sincere-Voice

            Okay, I hear you. It’s you that knows what you are talking about. A party that ruined and delivered a battered economy to a new party is the one that’s better. I hear you; clap for yourself!

          • Frank Bassey

            Check your life before May 2015 and now. Be sincere.

          • Sincere-Voice

            My life, smiles….
            Bro, joke apart, Its been upward trajectory for me.
            Times are hard, no doubt. It is not just Nigeria. Even before now, things were not rosy for the people. But if you truly know what you’re doing, you will smile always for real.
            Okay, let me also ask you, how much was a barrel of oil two years ago in Nigeria? How much is it now?

          • Frank Bassey

            Well, your man spent over 3 months abroad and return to say he was happy with the economy. A backward-moving nation in the grips of stiff incompetent leadership can only be appreciated by the doomed in body, soul and spirit. Just look at the appointments in NNPC recently. Look at the names of those in strategic positions. Nemesis will visit all of you one by one. It has started; but you pretend not to know.

          • Sincere-Voice

            Nemesis? You’re the one wailing here my friend. You sound more like a memesis ridden brute.
            I know you would have been more satisfied if the report was a negative one. God would continue to feed you evil plotters with the food of shame!

          • Frank Bassey

            Well, he will return to the UK after Salah!

          • Sincere-Voice

            You seem to be enjoying your food of shame. Don’t worry, God would serve you more of it.

          • Frank Bassey

            When Allah and the Demons have already stuffed your mouths with bunch of it after throwing stone at the Devil. The next agenda will be medical tourism. Shame. A President that trains his children abroad, receives medical treatment abroad and has the gut to say he is satisfied with the Economy. Deceit.

            Stories for the gods.
