The National Secretary of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Samuel Nnaemeka Anyanwu has denied plans to dissolve the State Working Committee, SWC of party in Imo State.
Senator Anyanwu described report alleging that he was working to sack the SWC as not only baseless and diversionary but also totally false.
In a statement signed by his media aide, Ikenna Onuoha, Anyanwu urged party members and members of the public to discontenance the report.
Senator Anyanwu said that every member of the party in Imo state has a responsibility to be loyal to PDP, adding that by so doing, the victory of the party will be assured irrespective of personal interest.
Anyanwu called on party members and stakeholders to put personal interest aside and join hands to move the party forward.
He regretted that as a result of internal wrangling witnessed in the past, PDP was unable to take its rightful place during the 2015 and 2019 elections respectively.
He said; “We are doing everything possible to galvanize the party in our state. In doing this, all hands must be on deck to raise enough funds for the party to meet its financial obligations.
“I am aware of a fake news linking me to a phony underground plot to dissolve the present SWC of our party in the state; please disregard the falsehood, it remains the handiwork of mischief makers”.
Anyanwu therefore assured of his readiness to continue to assist the party financially when necessary.
Anyanwu, who represented Imo East Senatorial District between 2015 and 2019 warned against the use of unguarded statements by some leaders to cause disaffection.
He said that such unguarded utterances are not only capable of igniting crisis within the party, but could also discourage members from carrying out their responsibilities to the party.
Recall that the National Secretary was reported to have while on a one-day working visit last week to the Imo State chapter of the party announced his willingness to pay 12 month salary arrears of members of staff of the party.
However, the SWC speaking through the state Secretary, Nze Ray Emeana swiftly refuted claim that the party was owing its members of staff.
He directed the media office of Senator Anyanwu, which he said was responsible for offending story to retract the story and tender unreserved apology to the SWC.
