By Celestine Okafor (Editor-in-Chief)
A mass group, Anyim-4-Nigeria Movement, at the weekend, commended the initiative and courageous decision of Nigeria's former Senate President, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, to run for the office of the President of Nigeria in 2023.
The mass organization also hailed the leaders, elders, and stakeholders of the South East Zone of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for their unanimous endorsement of the Presidential quest of Anyim.
Expressing the appreciation of the Movement on Friday, January 7, 2022, in Enugu shortly after Anyim met with the leaders on Thursday, January 6, Convener of the political movement, Dr Laz Ude Eze, said a country presently challenged as Nigeria, requires a man of courage, capacity, rich experience, competence and unifying disposition to lead the country as President in 2023.
That man, he said, should be Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, a Constitutional lawyer, foremost parliamentary leader and a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF).
Commending the southeast PDP leaders for their affirmation of Anyim as a prospective and qualified gold hope for Nigeria's Presidency, Dr. Ude Eze paid glowing tributes to Chief Ali Odefa (Odezuluigbo 1), the leader of the PDP southeast Zone for leading a successful zonal party conclave on Anyim's aspiration.
Dr Laz Ude Eze said: "We also commend the People's Democratic Party (PDP) in the southeast Zone under the able leadership of Chief Ali Odefa (Odezuligbo 1) for their massive attendance and active participation during Senator Anyim's Briefing and Consultation Session with the party stakeholders in Enugu yesterday (Thursday).
"We align strongly with the resolution that the presidential ticket of PDP be zoned to the South East in the spirit of equity, fairness and justice. We also thank many leaders of the party in the zone who attended namely, including Sen. Enyinnaya Abaribe, Chief Eze Duruiheoma SAN, Sen. Theodore Orji, Iyom Josephine Anenih, Sen. Chukwuka Utazi, Sen. Obinna Ogba, Hon. Linus Abaa Okorie, among others.
"Senator Anyim's speech at the event was very presidential, inspired hope and left no one in doubt of his seriousness, readiness and capacity to lead PDP to victory in 2023, if given the ticket.
"As a movement, we are very committed to continue to support every step being taken by Senator Pius Anyim to win the PDP presidential ticket and the presidential election in 2023 election so as to rescue, reunite, rebuild, reposition and restore hope in Nigeria.
"Our members turned out in their numbers and showed a strong physical presence at the briefing. We enjoin all Nigerians to support this noble project". NNL.
