Putting an end to speculations about his alleged divergent political interest, Dr. Pat Asadu, lawmaker representing Nsukka/Igbo-Eze South Federal Constituency in the National Assembly on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has organised a solidarity rally in support of all candidates of the party.
He debunked speculations that he was working against the PDP and its candidates in the state, saying he was for the PDP “whole and entire” and pledged to mobilise resources and galvanise his teeming supporters to ensure landslide victory for the party.
The federal lawmaker said he has benefited immensely from the party since 1999 having served as commissioner in various ministries and also spent 16 years in the House of Representatives.
Speaking at the rally attended by Enugu State Governor and candidate of the PDP for Enugu North Senatorial District, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, the state Chairman of the PDP, Augustine Nnamani, PDP governorship candidate in the state, Dr. Peter Mbah, his running mate, Ifeanyi Ossai, candidate for Enugu West Senatorial district, Osita Ngwu, candidate for Nsukka/Igbo-Eze South Federal Constituency, Chief Vita Abba, those of Igbo-Eze North/Udenu and Igbo-Etiti/Uzo-Uwani federal constituencies, Simon Atigwe and Martins Oke respectively, among others, Asadu assured that he was committed to PDP and would vote and work for it from president to councillor.
He thanked Governor Ugwuanyi for honouring him with his presence at the rally in spite of his tight schedule, adding that the governor was instrumental to his political ascendency in the National Assembly.
He also thanked Mbah and Ossai, expressing confidence that they would be the next governor and deputy governor of Enugu State next year.
Mbah, applauded Asadu for keeping to his words and putting an end to the speculations about his position on the PDP, describing him as a perfect gentleman. He appreciated Governor Ugwuanyi’s leadership prowess, penchant for peace, quality and sustainable socio-economic polices cum programmes.
“The proposal we have presented to Ndi Enugu about the ambitious economic growth we have, we are only able to do so because of the enabling environment you have provided. We cannot be talking about growth and economy or have a sustainable development if we do not have peace and security. We cannot be talking of growing our economy exponentially if you have not provided quality leadership and extensive infrastructure across the state in the last seven years plus. We cannot be talking about growing of our economy exponentially if we do not have peace among our civil and public servants that you strongly and fully pay their emoluments.
So we are very happy and proud that we are riding on the pedestal you have provided to move our state to the next level of our economic goal.”
