Odii, other PDP candidates list intact – Onyike insists


The Anyichuks Grassroots Support Organisation(AGSO) has dismissed reports making the rounds that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has delisted the name of the Enugu gubernatorial flagbearer and other Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) candidates from contesting the 2023 general elections in Ebonyi state.

The group described the said Publication as falsehood and mere propaganda urging the public to ignore the news reports being circulated in some sections of the media.

“Our attention has been drawn to the fake news being circulated by some sections of the press and the social media saying that the names of Ebonyi PDP Candidates have been delisted in the INEC portal based on what they termed as ‘Court Order’.”

Director, Media and Publicity of the group, Chief Abia Onyike, in a statement, stated that it’s abundantly clear the false report is the handiwork of mischief-makers.

According to the statement, the group said It is an orchestrated campaign of calumny master-minded by those individuals and parties who are afraid of the rising profile of PDP in the state.

“The report being circulated by these elements is their own fabrication which INEC has already disowned. The report should therefore be disregarded.

“It is well known by all and sundry that the issue of Ebonyi State PDP Governorship Primaries had been finally settled at the Supreme Court of Nigeria which upheld the nomination of Dr Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii as the authentic Governorship candidate of PDP for the 2023 elections.
