Ahead of the 2021 gubernatorial election in Anambra, Senator Walid Jibrin has said the place of Igbos in Nigerian politics will be determined by the southeastern state's governorship poll.
In a report by The Nation, Jibrin called on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders to begin grassroots mobilisation to make winning a reality as the party has all it takes to emerge victorious at the 2021 election.
Jibrin, the chairman, Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), made the disclosure during a reception for the chairman in the state, Ndubuisi Nwobu, over the weekend.
According to him, the reception by the party’s chapter in Anambra Central was another strategy to unite the party ahead of the governorship election.
While expressing satisfaction about the party’s unity, Nwobu assured the PDP national leadership that the party would do everything legitimately possible to win and produce a governor.
The forthcoming governorship election has torn the PDP apart as the party disowned an alleged zoning arrangement.
A former governor of the state, Chukwuemeka Ezeife, and some prominent members of the party had at a meeting and supported the zoning of the 2021 governorship position to Anambra South senatorial zone.
The PDP chairman in the state, however, disowned the zoning agreement on Wednesday, August 26.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has reportedly handed its forthcoming governorship ticket to former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo.
A chieftain of the party who disclosed this said APGA decided to give the ticket to Soludo as they believe he is the only person who can win the election for them.
According to the chieftain, the powers to be in the state have given Soludo permission to contest the election on the platform of APGA.
The source also said the obstacle Soludo was facing in the hands of one of the most powerful persons in the state had been cleared and the person had given the nod for him to sail with the party.
