The Aguata United Front (AUF), says it will leave no stone unturned to ensure victory for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2021 Anambra state gubernatorial election.
In a chat with journalists during a strategic awareness campaign held at Igboukwu town in Aguata Local Government Area, the chairman of the organization, Mr. Sam Okwonna said the group had resolved to mobilize support for the PDP to ensure its victory in next year’s governorship election in the state.
He said: ”The position of AUF is to make sure PDP wins the next gubernatorial election in Anambra state. We are mobilising stakeholders and other forces for the party, to ensure that it wins the election in Aguata and in Anambra state.”
The chairman, however, advised PDP aspirants to have the interest of the party and Anambra state at heart and work as a team before and after the primary elections.
“We are encouraging all the aspirants involved in the PDP primary election to have the interest of the party and the progress of the state at heart.
“Any of them that emerge as the candidate of the party, we shall work with him. We have already started mobilising and sensitizing the public concerning the upcoming election in Anambra state.
“ Our magic is we have the grassroots, and we have the support of the masses,” Okwonna stated.
Also speaking, Barrister Chigbo Okeafor, the Anambra South Election Campaign Coordinator of PDP in 2019 general elections in the state, opined that the organization is a force that has come to rejuvenate PDP in Aguata in particular, and Anambra state in general.
“AUF is political organization that champions the course of the enthronement of PDP in Aguata and Anambra state.
“That’s the summary of what Aguata United Front stands for. It a child of necessity that was born out of the fact that we know Aguata is PDP LGA, but been hindered by unseen forces, AUF wants to eliminate that.”
“Because of the way politics is played in Aguata, PDP has not been able to take its rightful position in Aguata politically. We have now resolved that enough is enough that PDP shall take prominence in Aguata and in Anambra state politically.”
He stressed further that AUF core mandate is to make sure PDP Governor is reinstated in Anambra state, because their members are grassroots political mobilizers in their various wards.
“We now resolved that any aspirant that emerged as candidate in PDP we shall mobilize Aguata to ensure that PDP governor is sworn-in at Agu Awka as the Governor of Anambra state come 2021 election in the state.
“AUF is a grassroots mobilised political organization solely for PDP. We are not for any particular aspirant, rather we are unrepentant PDP, whose mandate is to make sure that PDP wins in Anambra” Barr. Okeafor reaffirmed,”
