Media Support group on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Anambra, on monday appealed to the leadership of the party to conduct a free, fair and credible primary.
No fewer than 35 members of the formidable APGA Media Support Group attended the critical All media support groups meeting held at Queen Suite Hotel, in Awka.
Speaking at the event, the convener, Dr. Harris Chuma, said he was not happy with the rumour making the rounds that an aspirant had been allegedly anointed by party leaders, even before the primary.
He said such an illegal acts would not be tolerated and everything should be done by committed party members to resist such move, describing the rumour as baseless, comical, and at worst fairytales.
“I want to say, and I am sure, that Gov Willie Obiano has not chosen anybody to become the flag bearer of the party in the forthcoming primary election in Anambra.
“If anybody is planning to jeopardise the chances of the party to conduct a free and fair election such a person should rethink”
“I wish to appeal to our party leaders to give listening ear to all the aspirants, create equal opportunity, and conduct a free and fair primary election,”he said.
Another member of the media organization, Glory Solomon, corroborated the submission of Dr. Chuma, saying that imposition is old fashioned and should not be encouraged in the party.
“I have been a member of APGA for over 10years, I am quite aware of how elections are conducted, but I want to say that we will employ all media machinery within our disposal to resist imposition, intimidation or any form of malpractice,” she said.
