Anyim condemns triumph of primordial sentiments in PDP primary



PRESIDENTIAL candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Anyim Pius Anyim, has lamented that voting preferences at the PDP convention still reflected old pattern of primordial sentiments.

  He wondered if the national desire to find solutions to Nigeria’s problems would be realised by such actions.

Senator Anyim, however,  in a statement he  signed, , congratulated Atiku who polled 371 votes to defeat his closest rival, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, who scored 237 votes.

Anyim, who polled 14 votes appreciated all who supported his quest to be the PDP 2023 presidential candidate.

  He stated: “I am proud to have gone through the race to the end. However, I am shocked that consideration for voting the PDP presidential candidate was not based on burning national issues and how to resolve them, but still on the old primordial sentiments. It appears doubtful if our search for nationhood is yielding any results.

  “I deeply appreciate and thank all those who stood by me throughout this race, especially those that voted for me at the primary election. I want to assure all of you that we shall continue to stand tall until we birth the Nigeria of our collective dreams.”
