The governorship candidate, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ebonyi State, Dr Ifeanyi Odii, has described the new romance between Governor David Umahi and Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, a former Senate President as ‘fake’ romance that cannot stop his party from winning at the poll.
Anyim, stated this on Wednesday, at his Ishiagu country home, while playing host to Umahi. He revealed that he is in solidarity with the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Honourable Francis Nwifuru.
According to him equity must prevail in the state, as there is need for leadership seat in the state to shift to the North senatorial zone, from the southern part of the state.
“It’s a matter of choice. We don’t force people. We are with the people and we are confident because we are with the people. But the larger part of society is with us. The truth of the matter is that we are in a contest and we are not contesting for a particular person to vote for us.
“We are contesting for Ebonyians to vote us in. We are not panicking. We are not perturbed; am talking to the market women, students civil servants; am talking to those who have been oppressed.
“Am talking about how to recover Ebonyi state. Maybe these people are the problem we have in our society. They know that Anyichuks is a brand; we are here to offer service to our people; we are here to recover Ebonyi state; we are here to liberate our people.
“You know we don’t make noise; some are good at propaganda; we work behind the scene. We are after achieving results. Remember we had lots of litigations, and in the long run, we became victorious.”
