Anambra State Caretaker Committee of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that the party would no longer tolerate activities of moneybag politicians, who according to it, usually buy voters through re-writing of figures.

The Former Minister of Health and new state caretaker committee chairman of the party, Prof Alphonsus (A.B.C) Nwosu, who disclosed this on Thursday after inauguration of PDP local government caretaker committees, boasted that Anambra State would no longer contain “cash and carry politics as it used to be in the past”.
Nwosu, who urged politicians to learn to mobilise voters, equally asked electorates to always exercise and safeguard their franchise through ensuring that none would ever alter the figures so as to ensuring enthronement of worthy characters like late Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe, Chinua Achebe, among others.

According to him, under the new arrangement in PDP, certificates of returns would even be issued at ward level to engineer seriousness among the executives and the masses because “Anambra is not a difficult terrain to live. I was the first gubernatorial candidate produced by the party in 1998. All we need in Anambra is to be open to all and show voters that their conditions of life will be better under our political party and that they will be allowed to choose their representatives. 

“This is what I am determined to lead the team to achieve and we are certain that we have the capacity to reconnect with both the elite and the masses in Anambra State. Our objective is to make Anambra better.  We want to fast track our development in the nearest future.

“The state that produced the Great Zik, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, the first Igbo PHD holder, Nnodu Okongwu, Sir Louis Mbanefo, Chinua Achebe, Pius Okigbo, Cardinal Arinze and so many others must fly again,” the former minister said.
