The recent inauguration of a new Caretaker Committee for Anambra State PDP Chapter by theÂ National Chairman, Dr. Okwesilieze Nwodo has been commended as a strategic ice breaker in theÂ embarrassing cycle of selfish driven intrigues in Anambra State PDP.
Making the commendation is a core Igbo centric group, Congress for Igbo Renaissance (CIREN),Â which stated that the self inflicted national scorn the Anambra State PDP cultivated overtimeÂ appear set for reversal with this obviously sober and candid choice of caretaker members.
â€œBy this well considered intervention, the National Chairman and his NEC members haveÂ demonstrated that the unflattering state of affairs in Anambra PDP is not only recoverable butÂ actually winnable through simple tact and honest heart.
“We of the Congress for Igbo Renaissance therefore, feel strongly that the reign of tirades,Â underhand scheming and, barefaced sabotage have lasted long enough, to let competitive decencyÂ take the floor of Anambra PDP once again,” the group noted in a statement signed by theÂ president Dr. Steve Ugonna.
He added: “Infact, we dare advise that the vibrant energies often engaged in unbefittingÂ faction proliferation, should be made available to the committee, so that through creativeÂ synergy with the National Chairmanâ€™s deft maneuvers, they should be able to organize soon aÂ command pulling out parade for Gov. Peter Obi into his proper abode, the PDP.”
Dr. Ugonna further advised that having become battle wary now is the time for all the cartelsÂ and camps in Anambra PDP to abandon their intrigues with dignity and dissolve like one familyÂ into one cohesive umbrella under the present caretaker executive with the honest resolve toÂ wrest the leadership of the State from a lonely Gov. Peter Obiâ€™s APGA.
“We therefore urge the Mr. Emmanuel Nweze-led caretaker committee to divest themselves of theÂ luxury of time wasting, because the tasks before them are herculean. We advise they should beÂ level headed, transparent, faction blind, and show a keen commitment to true reconciliation inÂ order to achieve the desired goal.
