- The former minister of aviation Osita Chidoka has said that despite the ruling of the Supreme Court on the Peoples Democratic Party's case he will remain in the United Progressive Party (UPP)
- Chidoka said he has already started making preparations for the Anambra election on the platform of the UPP
- He said he expects the PDP to make good use of the opportunity given to it by yesterday's judgement to present its own candidate for the Anambra election
The former minister of aviation Osita Chidoka has reacted to Wednesday's ruling of the Supreme Court on the matter between the factional chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), four others and the party.
Chidoka while congratulating the PDP yesterday's victory said he has no intention of returning to the party.
The former who decamped from the PDP in June said he is already with the United Progressive Party (UPP) and has started making preparation to contest on the party's platform.
He however, said, he expects the Supreme Court ruling to bring an end to the leadership tussle in the party.
The former minister who has indicated interest in the November 18, Anambra election urged the the PDP to leverage on the opportunity presented to it by through the court's ruling and make its best available.
He said: "We in the United Progressives Party (UPP) have already started our preparations and we are working hard to ensure that we present our best for the election because ndi Anambra deserve only the best."
Already, the UPP has proven to be one political platform that can deliver the wishes and aspirations of the Anambra people; a fact that informs its soaring grassroot popularity in all the electoral wards across Anambra state as the platform that genuinely offers them a voice and where their interests only, drive the policies and ideology of the party," Chidoka said.
The time has therefore come for the political class to jettison all unnecessary anti-people and selfishly motivated political crisis and focus only on presenting credible options for the people to make their choice at the polls.
It is on this note that we in the UPP are desirous of a clean, robust and issue-based contest that affords the citizens the opportunity to make informed decisions at the polls. In this election, the verdict lies solely with the people; every political party must therefore work hard to present its best and brightest to face the electorate at the polls," the former minister added.
