Dr Obiogbolu, Chief Uzo join Senatorial race, predict victory for Anambra PDP

Two front-line aspirants of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Chiefs Obinna Uzo and Dr. Alex Obiogbolu have joined the race for the Senatorial race for Anambra North and Anambra South districts respectively in the forthcoming elections, reports www.odogwublog.com .
Uzo and Obiogbolu had contested the Governorship election to become Anambra Governor to no avail but recently declared interest to contest the Senate.
They have already submitted their completed Nominations Forms to the Hon. Ndubisi Nwobu-led PDP’s State Executive at the Party’s Secretariat in Awka, the State capital on Monday September 10, 2018.

They predicted victory for PDP, and hoped PDP will provide a level-playing ground by conducting a free, fair and credible primary.
According to Uzo, a lawyer and philanthropist, the submission of the form by him is preparatory to his campaign to unseat the incumbent, Senator Andy, who is currently in All Progressives Congress (APC) and angling to return to the Upper Chamber for the third time.
He expressed the hope that national leadership of PDP will assist to provide a united front to enable the party reclaim the State, stressing that PDP dominates in senatorial election while All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has the upper hand in the governorship race.
Uzo who is gunning for the Senatorial seat for the second time after failed bid to occupy the office of the governor for the second time, hinted that his repeated aspirations are indication that he wants to give quality representation and dividends of democracy to his constituents.
He condemned the ploy by some politicians to hoodwink the electorate and come to them only during election period, and urged them to  collect monetary and material inducements, but to vote according to their conscience at the polling booth.
Obiogbolu who spoke in the same vein on his aspiration for the Anambra North Senatorial seat, expressed the hope that the defection of the incumbent Senator, Princess Stella Oduah to APGA has brightened the chances of PDP to reclaim the seat.
He said that he remains one of the few contestants in PDP who have not dumped the party even in the face of injustice and denial of ticket, and called on the party to back those who have contributed to its growth and development over the years.
The former governorship aspirant of the party years back expressed optimism that he is sure to get the ticket to run in his constituency and called on members and supporters to close ranks and support the current leadership to take the party to the promise land.
