Why I Stepped Down For Stella Oduah —Senatorial Aspirant
By Eneh Victor Chigozie
A senatorial aspirant in the People’s Democratic Party [PDP], in a statement this morning, gave reasons why he stepped down for Senator Adaeze Stella Oduah during the last senatorial primaries for Anambra north senatorial zone
The senatorial aspirant, Barr Ben Aghaebe who personally signed the letter congratulating Oduah for emerging victorious at the primaries said she has done so well in the last 3 years and that ndi Anambra north should support her to continue her good work.
Barr Aghaebe wrote:
I was an Aspirant for the Senate seat of Anambra North Senatorial seat of Anambra State. I purchased the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) NOMINATION FORM and the EXPRESSION of INTEREST for SENATORIAL because at that time, the most distinguished Senator Stella Odua was in APGA and I believed nobody is more competent than me as far as the aspirants were concerned.
But as soon as the most Distinguished came back to the party, I knew there was no need for me to continue and so I stepped down for her and encouraged my other aspirants to do same.
My reasons are not farfetched.
In the spirit of oneness and PDP, I thought she deserves a second tenure to enable her complete the gigantic empowerment projects she started and the numerous projects in her hands for the people and some less privileged in the Senatorial Zone.
Notwithstanding all the above, she is the most able and most suitable amongst the aspirants having been there and known the terrain more than all of us.
Though she has only done one tenure, she has indeed made Anambra North proud in the last years and deserves another tenure.
After she won the party primaries, I saw the jubilation that followed in many areas of the Zone.
I wish therefore to state and declare that it is most wise for all the aspirants to join forces with Senator Stella Oduah and give her all the necessary support in other for our great party to succeed in the general election.
Barr Eugene Ben Aghaebe (former aspirant, Senate Anambra North).
