Anyim protests absence of list of delegates from Ebonyi State


…warns that disenfranchisement would fundamentally affect PDP primaries

Frontline presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Anyim Pius Anyim has expressed deep concern on the absence of list of delegates from Ebonyi State, among the list of delegates from other states of the Federation, for the National convention of party scheduled to hold on the 28th and 29th of May, 2022 in Abuja.

In an open letter of concern issued on Friday, 27th May 2022 and addressed to Prof Iyorchia Ayu, National Chairman of the PDP and Sen. David Mark, Chairman of the PDP Special Convention, Anyim lamented that he had gone through the list of delegates from other states and the FCT but could not find that of Ebonyi State delegates.

Sen. Anyim noted with dismay, that despite assurances by the National Organising Secretary of the Party that, what he called ‘technical error’ would be rectified, the problem remained as at 12 noon on Friday 27th May.

The letter titled “Open Letter on the Absence of Ebonyi State Delegates List” reads:

“The Chairman may recall that during the meeting of Presidential aspirants and the Special Convention Committee held on the 26th day of May 2022 at the Legacy House, that the entire delegates list for all the states were presented to each of the aspirants.

“On an examination of the list, I discovered that the Ebonyi State delegates list was not included. On inquiry from the National Organizing Secretary, he informed me that there was a technical error and it will be corrected today.

“As at the time of writing this letter i.e. 12 noon 27th/05/2022, I have no clue about the fate of the delegates from Ebonyi State.

“The purpose of this letter is to alert all concerned that disenfranchising delegates from Ebonyi State or any state for that matter will fundamentally affect the election”, the open letter warned.
