Following his declaration as PDP candidate for Ebonyi 2023 governorship election by the Supreme Court, Ifeanyi Odii has called on all the party’s faithful in the state to unite together to win in the state.
Mr Odii, who spoke to journalists shortly after the apex court’s judgment, described the ruling as a welcomed development to the state’s party chapter.
He said he would reach out to every PDP leader, including all aggrieved members, on how to chart a new way forward.
“Today is a great day for us as PDP family. The victory goes to PDP as one family,” he said.
“I will be reaching out to every party leader, my fellow party faithful, on how we will win the 2023 election.”
Mr Odii, who said the issue of factional crisis in the party had finally been put to a rest, said it was time members went back to the drawing board on how to move the party forward.
He, therefore, called on all aggrieved members to sheathe their swords so that the party could successfully wrestle power from the ruling party.
He described the judiciary as the last hope of the common man.
Speaking on the 2023 poll, he said, “Ebonyi is a PDP state. The battle may look fierce, but PDP is the winning party.”
The apex court had, earlier in a unanimous judgment, declared Mr Odii as the validly elected candidate of the PDP for the 2023 Ebonyi governorship election.
