— Charges Party to support the ongoing election security campaign.
NEWSDAILYNIGERIA– The CIVIL SOCIETY COMMITTEE FOR ANAMBRA ELECTION SECURITY (CISCAES), an election security and peace action committee, headed by a renowned social entrepreneur and peace activist, Comrade Kennedy Iyere, has congratulated the leadership of the People’s Democratic Party PDP for the conduct of a credible, transparent, free and fair primary, which culminated into the emergence of a widely accepted candidate, Valentine Ozigbo, as the flag bearer of the People”s Democratic Party, in the forthcoming November 6 guber poll in Anambra State.
Recall that this same coalition of CSOs had earlier raised an alarm, few days ago, over the perceived intention to rig the Primary, which in the process indicted some key officials of the Party.
Those key Party Officials indicted in the Group’s Protest Letters signed by Comrade Iyere, were able to clear themselves, after the wide publication of the protest letters. In order to ensure the authenticity of their claim of innocence, CISCAES stakeholders, were largely on ground to monitor the Primary and report derived by the Group’s monitoring team was vindictive.
All thanks goes to Col.Austine Alobundu, the National Organising Security of the PDP, for allowing a credible Primary. We also want the leadership of the APC and APGA to borrow some lessons from Uche Secondus and his team, in order to learn how best to conduct a credible and widely acceptable Primaries.
As a coalition of CSOs, it is our earnest desire that with the successful conclusion of this primary, the party would reach out to all aspirants who have participated in the primary with the aim of pacifying the aggrieved ones among them, with a view to incorporating everyone of them into Valentine Ezigbo’s campaign team. This will not only enhance the party’s chances of victory but also promote peaceful conduct of the election processes in general.
Similarly, we wish to extend our heartiest congratulations to Mr.Valentine Ozigbo for emerging, as the winner of the primary, which could only have been achieved through the grace of God and a tedious campaign.
We therefore extend our hands of fellowship to both Mr Ozigbo, the PDP and other aspirants, who participated in the contest. We encourage everyone of you to join forces with us towards the actualization of a violence-free, credible and widely accepted Anambra 2021 guber election, which of course, is the purpose for the formation of CISCAES.
We thank you and may God Almighty bless your family. Comrade Kennedy Iyere, Convener, Civil Society Committee for Anambra Election Security (CISCAES)
