Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu on Tuesday, March 30, described himself as a life member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)'s Board of Trustees.
Iwuanyanwu also boasted that because of this position, nobody in the opposition party can sack him either in the southeast or anywhere else, insisting that he has invested so much to bring the PDP to where it is at the moment.
He specifically recalled his efforts that were instrumental to the party's victory (though short-lived) in the 2019 Imo governorship election.
Moreover, in a video shared on his Facebook page, the PDP chieftain lamented being misquoted by some persons who claimed he regretted voting for the party during the poll.
“I did not also say I regretted voting for an Owerri zone man during the 2019 governorship election. I was quoted wrongly in the media and, because of this, a pack of riffraff has been calling for my sacking from the PDP.
“No riffraff can sack me from the PDP. I am a life BOT member of the PDP. I know the prominent role I played in making sure that the party won the 2019 Imo governorship election.”
Meanwhile, aspirants under the age of 35 seeking to contest for elective positions on the platform of the PDP should be exempted from the payment of nomination fees, according to the party's National Reconciliation and Strategy Committee (NRSC).
The recommendation from the opposition party was contained in a letter signed by the chairman of the NRSC, Dr. Bukola Saraki.
The committee in a letter dated Thursday, March 25, and addressed to Prince Uche Secondus, the PDP national chairman, noted that the recommendation is following the meeting held with the party’s national youth leader and other young people across the nation.
