Nonsochukwu Uwa, Owerri
The National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Samuel Anyanwu, on Thursday, dissociated himself from media reports that he had pulled out from the 2023 presidential campaign team of the PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubarkar.
Senator Anyanwu made this known to newsmen in Owerri through his Special Adviser on Media, Ikenna Onuoha.
He described the story as false and baseless and the handiwork of the enemies of the party to cause infighting in PDP.
The statement made available to Ikengaonline read in part: “The attention of the National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Samuel Nnaemeka Anyanwu, has been drawn to this mischievous and frivolous story on social media that he has pulled out from the Presidential Campaign Council of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
“The story is false and baseless and therefore, should be disregarded. However, such petty propaganda and campaign of calumny is meant to blackmail the PDP National Scribe and create infighting in our party.”
“It is of note that the falsehood remains the handiwork of enemies of our party struggling to distract Senator Anyanwu and his colleagues who are out to end the APC’s misrule in Nigeria.
“The PDP National Secretary further assures Nigerians of the party’s readiness to oust the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government, and thereafter, enthrone good governance that will be anchored on transparency, sustainable and human capital development,” he said.
