A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ebonyi state, Chief Ajah Crown Chukwuma, has described the member Representing Ezza North and Ishielu Federal Constitutency Of Ebonyi State in the House of Representatives, Hon. Anayo Edwin as the best for the 2023 Ebonyi gubernatorial ticket of the party if PDP really means to win the election and take back Ebonyi State. Chief Aja, a founding member of the PDP who also doubled as the pioneer scribe of the party revealed this during a media chat with newsmen in Abakaliki on Friday, 15th April.

According to him " Hon. Anatex is the best to fly the Ebonyi 2023 Guber ticket of the PDP if the party wants to win the election and take over Ebonyi State. He has the capacity and coming from the majority his chances are very bright. The best thing for the PDP to do is to concede the ticket of the party to him.

"Hon. Anatex is humble to a fault. He respects the high and the low, very committed to human development as we have seen in his efforts as a lawmaker".


Chief Crown Aja stressed that Anayo Edwin is from Ezza Ezekuna which constitutes the undisputed majority tribe in Ebonyi State. Ajah added that Ezza people are occupants of every part of the state. He also stated that going by the recent communal clashes between the Izzi people and Ikwo people, it will be difficult for an Ikwo man who has twenty wards to vote for anybody from Izzi. Ajah warned that the people of Ebonyi South are poised to invest their votes reasonably in 2023 and so expect the PDP to go beyond emotions to embrace prevalent realities of Ebonyi political environment and pick a sellable candidate like Anayo Edwin ahead of the elections.

The party chieftain called for calm ahead of the primary election insisting that the party should ensure a transparent exercise opining that it is only a transparent primary election that will guarantee the party the much needed unity of purpose necessary to win the elections.
