Some credible sources have confided on AIF Media that Dr Godwin Maduka, the Umuchukwu US based pain expert is close to picking the ticket of the People’s Democratic Party for Anambra state 2021 governorship election coming up on November.
AIF Media was told that about 2 PDP governorship aspirants have concluded plans to step down for him while negotiations with 3 others are at different stages of conclusion.
In our Investigation, it was gathered that Dr Godwin Maduka is using his international contacts to weigh heavily on PDP leaders to pick him as a consensus candidate of the party. Some aspirants who understand the power play going on presently in PDP are beginning to give conditions to collapse their structures for him.
However, the battle from a liable source is narrowing down to Dr Maduka, Iyom Uche Ekwunife and Valentine Chineto Ozigbo
Apart from the influence coming from his international contacts, funding the gubernatorial election is another huge factor on his side. It is believed that he has the financial strength to provide over 80% of fund needed for the election. Most importantly, many PDP leaders at Abuja are tipping him to pick the party’s ticket.
On the part of the church, it is believed that the dominant denomination in our religious politics here is at home with his candidature.
Meanwhile, there is an going political power play at Abuja between the camp of Peter Obi and that of Chief Chris Uba and Evang Linus Ukachukwu.
The “collabo” between Chief Chris Uba and Linus Ukachukwu is a PDP family of old and founding members in Anambra while Obi’s camp is made up of those who joined the party recently.
Dr Godwin Maduka, Val Ozigbo and Iyom Ekwunife are the major aspirants who will get the support of both camps. But the Pain Expert may snatch the ticket if he is able to get those aspirants to step down for him.
The names of the two aspirants who have agreed to step down and the other 3 who are at different stages of agreeing to collapse their structures for Dr Godwin Maduka are still being kept secret.
As usual, AIF Media is working hard to unravel the names of the aspirants.
