The disagreement among members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Imo State over the last Saturday ward congresses conducted in the state, yesterday has heightened.

It was understand that both the leadership of the party and different groups were engaged in a war of words.

First to fire was a pro- Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, group under the name, Divine Mandate Movement, DMM, led by its Director-General, Protus Nathan which called on the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, to examine the mental status of the spokesperson of Coalition of United Political Parties, CUPP, Ikenga Ugochinyere Imo.

They stated this while responding to a CUPP spokesperson who had earlier called for the removal of the National Secretary of the PDP, Samdaddy Anyanwu, over alleged involvement in the last Saturday ward congresses of the PDP, in the state.

According to the group loyal to PDP: “I like it when the NDLEA said that they will examine aspirants contesting elections as a move in the right direction. Let us subject Ugochinyere Imo’s statement to a mental examination.

Narcotics may be speaking there. So, we call on the NDLEA to examine his brain for making that statement. He is doing the business of his paymasters. Ugochinyere Imo and his paymasters should prepare for failure. We must be careful that infiltrators like Ugochinyere must not be allow- ed to destroy our party.”

He continued: “Divine Mandate Movement (DMM) is a very formidable political structure that parades critical political leaders across Imo State and beyond. Our interest is to create a good image for PDP through the strategized projection of party programmes and visions.

You are aware that our party held its Ward Delegate Congress election on Saturday, April 30th, 2022, and the outcome of the exercise has received wide commendations over its transparency.

“That ward delegate election has been adjudged to be the freest, fairest and most credible election in the history of PDP in the state. However, it is also worthy of note that a few individuals who wanted to hijack the whole exercise but were disappointed are crying foul, and calling for its cancellation.
