Nigerian Senator and former Minister of Aviation, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Candidate, representing Anambra North Constituency, Stella Oduah has said that the incursion of the Labour Party (LP) into Anambra State through former Governor Peter Obi as its presidential flagbearer, is not a threat to her party.
Oduah stated this during a press conference at the presentation of certificates of return to 30 PDP candidates who won the party primaries for both the House of Assembly and National Assembly on Thursday in Abuja.
NAN reports that 20 House of Assembly PDP candidates and 10 National Assembly candidates from Anambra North and South were presented with certificates of return.
Oduah, a former Minister of Aviation, said that it was not the first time a new party would come into Anambra, insisting that the PDP had always defeated them.
She said, “This isn’t the first time a new party is coming to Anambra, we have nothing to fear, politics is local and what we’re contesting for is to represent our people.
”Our people cannot leave what they know to what they don’t know. We aren’t jittery and we are more than capable to win the election for the PDP.”
