BEVERLY HILLS, April 24, (THEWILL) – The Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has declared that the landslide victory recorded by the party in the just-concluded chairmanship and councillorship elections in Ebonyi State goes to show that the party was still the most acceptable and popular brand.
In a statement issued on Monday by its spokesman, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, the committee explained that the acceptance enjoyed by the PDP across the country is because of its status as the only national party that is well-grounded and experienced on issues of democratic governance.
The faction attributed the party’s success in the local government elections in Ebonyi state to the performance of the state governor; Dave Umahi, who it noted has done very well in office.
“No doubt, the successful elections with landslide victories for the 13 Council Chairmen and 171 Ward Councillors in Ebonyi State have once again, demonstrated strength and popularity of the PDP in the south-east zone of the country and Ebonyi State in particular.
“We are proud of all the elected officers but it is noteworthy that the success of the PDP at the polls are largely due to the remarkable performance of the Governor of Ebonyi State, H. E. Engr. Dave Umahi and the previous indelible achievements of our great party in the state.
“We therefore make bold to state that Ebonyi State is home of the PDP and the outcome of the elections is a good showing that the PDP brand remains the most acceptable in all states of the federation being the only national party that is well-grounded and experienced on issues of democratic governance,” the statement read.
