Samuel Anyanwu, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo, says he is ready to “throw out” the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the state government house.

TheCable had reported that Anyanwu, national secretary of the PDP, won the party’s governorship primary in Imo state.

Anyanwu, a former senator, polled 802 votes at the election which took place on Wednesday in Owerri, the state capital.

He was the sole candidate in the race following the withdrawal of other aspirants.

In a statement on Thursday by Ikenna Onuoha, his media aide, Anyanwu denied a report that he is being sponsored by a politician for the November governorship election.

The former senator said the report was planted by individuals who are scared of his candidacy.

“For the avoidance of doubt, this story is not only false, baseless, and misleading, but a brazen concoction garnished by individuals already afraid of PDP and its governorship candidate to deceive the general public,” he said.

“What the peddlers of this falsehood forgot is that, in 2019, Senator Anyanwu ran for governorship election when the person purportedly sponsoring him today was also in the race.

“The questions are; who sponsored Senator Anyanwu in the 2019 governorship poll if in their mischievous imagination, he can be sponsored today?

“Whose interest was the PDP guber candidate protecting as far back as 2019 when some of those championing the fake news today were struggling to be relevant?

“We wish to put the records straight that it is only a failure, a nonentity and a push-over that can be sponsored as a governorship candidate to destabilise the position of Ndi-Imo and not Senator Anyanwu who represents the minds of every average Imo person.

“The truth of the matter is that the PDP governorship candidate, Senator Anyanwu is fully out to send the APC government packing and ensure that our state is secure in its entirety.”

Onuoha said Anyanwu presented an abridged version of his manifesto to the public few minutes after his emergence as Imo PDP governorship standard bearer.
