Governorship aspirant in Enugu State, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has urged the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the State to ensure a free and fair primary elections are conducted.
Ekweremadu, a Former Deputy President of the Senate stated this while speaking in Enugu on Tuesday during a consultative session with the leadership of the Enugu State PDP.
He said ensuring credible election was critical to make sure that the most popular candidates emerge from the process.
According to Ekweremadu: “I am here essentially to solicit votes because all members of the party’s State executive are statutory delegates, starting from the House of Assembly to the National Assembly, and ultimately the gubernatorial primaries.
“I am also here to further advise them to ensure a free and fair process. I would love to see everybody at the end say that our delegates and primary elections were free and fair. That is the only way we can ensure justice, equity, and peace.
“I am looking forward to a process that will be very transparent and productive so that we can all go to the election after the primary as one strong house, undivided.
“I am equally calling on all stakeholders and aspirants to various offices to toe the path of sportsmanship and democratic ideals of the PDP. That way, the PDP will emerge stronger”.
