PDP candidate speaks on ‘withdrawing from Imo governorship election’


The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in the Imo State election, Senator Samuel Anyanwu has described the claim that he has withdrawn from the race as mischievous.

He said that the report trending on social media purportedly claiming that he has withdrawn is not only fake but blatant lie from the pit of hell.

The statement signed on Friday by the Director, Media and Publicity Imo PDP (Sam-Jones) Governorship Campaign Organization, Ikenna Onuoha reads: “Our attention has been drawn to a trending video on social media purportedly claiming that the Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the Saturday, November 11 off-season election in Imo state, Senator Samuel Nnaemeka Anyanwu popularly known as “Samdaddy” has withdrawn.

“This video is not only fake, blatant lie from the pit of hell, very mischievous, ridiculous and misleading, but a senseless vile sheepishly formulated by the outgoing Governor Uzodimma to deceive the public.

“A critical look at the said video indicates that it was criminally edited and super imposed by these mischief makers. Please, ignore such falsehood as Senator Anyanwu never withdrawn and does not have such intention in this attention he has almost won.

“The truth of the matter is that Senator Samuel Nnaemeka Anyanwu and the candidate of the PDP is a big threat to Uzodimma, who has become dried in both the physical and spiritual since Imo people started booing him.

“It is important to tell Uzodinma and his supporters that no amount of blackmail and empty propaganda will ever save him from the looming defeat on Saturday.

“Senator Samuel Nnaemeka Anyanwu remains a candidate to beat in this Saturday Governorship election. He is prominently in the race and will never ever think of withdrawing from a contest over 70% percent of observers have ticked him as the likely winner of the poll.”
