Imo state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has debunked the media report “that poor funding has choked the party and it’s leaders have turn their backs at the Party”, describing the report as the figment of the speculative imagination of its sponsors.
The party which spoke through the State Publicity Secretary, Ogubundu Nwadike added “let it be known that our party boasts of very committed leaders who have continued to sail and swim with the party in all weathers. No other party in the State can make similar boast.
“For the sake of those who may have forgotten, it is with every sense of pride that we declare here that Imo PDP is the only functional party in Imo State today. It has the benefit of continually housing the most prominent and most reliable politicians and political leaders in Imo State. Funding of the party has never been an issue. The party has never abdicated in any of its financial obligations, but rather it has been expanding its structures in all wards and local governments in the State as always.
“Furthermore, it must be reminded that Imo PDP remains the only party in the State with a functional Administrative State Secretariat, steadily serviced by a cache of different cadres of staff, required infrastructure like water, electricity, clean and healthy environment, etcetera.
“The source of the false story is manifestly obvious, anyway. Those whose parties are grossly factionalized, whose Secretariats are over-grown with weeds, lacking administration, are the obvious source of the story. It’s a question of kettle calling gold black. For the avoidance of doubt, Imo PDP is not only very solvent, but also financially very healthy.
