Reminder: How ex PDP chairman joined cabal to frustrate Soludo In 2009
Facts have emerged on how the first attempt by Prof. Chukwuma Soludo to become governor of Anambra was truncated in 2009.
Soludo had been given the governorship ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) under the National Chairmanship of Chief Vincent Ogbulafor.
This was in line with the approval of the stakeholders of the party but the move was stoutly resisted by a cabal who described Soludo as a stranger.
Among them was one politician from Ogidi in Idemili North Local Government Area who is now aspiring to become chairman of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Anambra Chapter under Soludo.
This same man was the Chairman of PDP in Anambra when it rigged APGA out in the 2003 governorship election and did all it could to kill the party he wants to chair today.
History does not forget
“Supported by another former Chairman of the party in the State, Ifeatu Obi Okoye, he noted that there has been a deliberate effort to make sure that nothing works in Anambra state.
“There were three main blocks running for governorship in Anambra state, forget about the number of aspirants who collected nomination forms.
“There was the group of Chief Chris Uba that was effectively on the ground.
“There was the group led by Ukachukwu effectively on the ground and the group led by Senator Annie Okonkwo effectively on the ground.
“Apart from these three groups any other person you hear of was just exercise in futility” he said.
