BREAKING NEWS: PDP Begs Police To Wade In Crisis

PDP Factional Crisis In Anambra Deepen
The Peoples Democratic Party in Anambra state has begged the police to clampdown on all unlawful secretariats of the party in the state.

This request was made by the state’s chairman of the party, Prince Ken Emeakayi in Akwa, on Sunday, September 6, while calling for the arrest of any parallel executive or anyone that is impersonating the state chairman, Channels TV reports.

According to Emeakayi, himself and his executive would not watch helplessly as some group parading as PDP executives in the state continue to cause confusion.

He stressed that the national leadership of the party had put to rest issues bordering on the authenticity of the party leadership in the state.

The PDP state chairman added that the acting national chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, in a letter to the Anambra state commissioner of police, Hassan Karma, clearly states who the state chairman is.

Emeakayi pointed out that any other secretariats apart from the one located at 1, Ezidiegwuy Road, Udoka Housing Estate in Awka, are operating illegally. He added that the illegal use of the party’s name, logo and symbol in the state would not be tolerated by the executives.

The state police command had however, acknowledged receiving a letter from the national leadership of the PDP, confirming Emeakayi as its legitimate chairman.

The police noted that no arrest would be made on the matter till the court sanctioned such action.

Meanwhile, a former adviser to former president Goodluck Jonathan on political matter was reportedly said to have gone to the national secretariat to declare his intention to vie for the party chairmanship position.

He pointed out that the three months which the party’s constitution stipulates for acting capacity had expired hence the need for an election to be conducted into the office.
