A member of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Chris Uba, has blamed former President Goodluck Jonathan for the loss of elections in Anambra State by the PDP in recent times.
” The first accident the PDP experienced in Anambra state is when former president Jonathan made former Anambra governor Peter Obi, a leader in Anambra state.”
“Obi doesn’t have the capacity to make Obaze or anybody a governor without my input. Obi has killed this party. This is an election we would have won with a wide margin. Obi carried what he could not control.
“My heart is bleeding. We lost this election by coming distant third. In such a large party, you don’t use it to settle scores. Obi came into the PDP to settle scores with Obiano, his former ally. That was our bane in this election.
“In 2003, I helped the PDP to produce Dr. Chris Ngige as governor; we produced three senators and 11 House of Representatives members in that election. That was the last victory PDP enjoyed in this state,”
“How is it that each time, a party somebody is nurturing will be hijacked by strangers some months to the election? Obi has not won any election without my input. Why did he bring a foreigner to represent us in this election? That is the cause of this loss.”
“It’s because of this impunity that Obiano won this election. My heart is bleeding that we lost this election again. Anambra State is a PDP state, yet each time we will lose to “strangers.
Uba alleged that Obi was one of the people who caused the loss of the party in the 2015 general elections.
PDP should stop this impunity. Some of those governors that came here to campaign for the PDP here could not have been governors without my input. Why didn’t they ask after me when they came here to campaign?” He queried.
He said Obi must apologise to the PDP members in Anambra State for leading them into an inglorious outing at the poll.
