Imo PDP Is Not Broke- Spokesperson



Everest Ezihe, Owerri

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo State has refuted a local newspaper report alleging that the party is broke describing it as   a fabrication of the newspaper and the figment of the speculative imagination of its sponsors insisting that the party is not broke.

According to a statement signed by Mr Ogubundu Nwadike, the Acting State Publicity Secretary on Wednesday and made available to news men in Owerri and said that “I hereby vehemently refutes the statement that leaders of Imo PDP have turned their backs to our party. Let it be known that our party boasts of very committed leaders who have continued to sail and swim with the party in all weathers. No other party in the State can make similar boast” he pointed out.

Nwadike also noted that “for the sake of those who may have forgotten, it is with every sense of pride that we declare here that Imo PDP is the only functional party in Imo State today. It has the benefit of continually housing the most prominent and most reliable politicians and political leaders in Imo State. Funding of the party has never been an issue. The party has never abdicated in any of its financial obligations, but rather it has been expanding its structures in all wards and local governments in the State as always” he said.

He further said that it must be reminded that Imo PDP remains the only party in the State with a functional Administrative State Secretariat, steadily serviced by a cache of different cadres of staff, required infrastructure like water, electricity, clean and healthy environment, etcetera.

The party also alleged that the source  of the false story is manifestly obvious stressing that those whose parties are grossly factionalized and whose Secretaiats are over-grown with weeds, lacking administration, are the true source of the story.

They noted that It’s a question of kettle calling gold black and or the avoidance of doubt, Imo PDP is not only very solvent, but also financially very healthy.

  party Spokesman expressed gratitude to the leaders, members, supporters, well-wishers and indeed the greater majority of Imo people for their continued support, encouragement and cooperation.

He urged them to disregard the newspaper story insisting that Imo PDP remains the incontrovertible biggest, strongest and most reliable party in the State.
