Sen. Anyim Pius Anyim heartily congratulates the members of the new Zamfara State Executive Committee on the successful conclusion of the state congress despite the antics of some enemies of democracy and Nigeria who thought they could prevent the holding of the congress.
In a statement signed by Sam Nwaobasi, Media Adviser to
Sen. Anyim pius Anyim, GCON.
Sen. Anyim is elated by the quality of leaders who emerged as members of the Zamfara State Executive Committee. He is happy that the new Zamfara State PDP Chairman, Col. Bala Mande (rtd) a dependable and courageous leader, who has served Nigeria diligently as former military Administrator of Nasarawa State from August 1998 to May, 1999 and later as Hon.
Minister of Environment from July, 2003 to June 2005 will bring his wealth of experience to bear on the running of the affairs of Zamfara State chapter of PDP.
Sen. Anyim is confident that with the caliber of leaders elected to serve in the Zamfara State executive Committee with Col. Mande, PDP is surely on its way to recovering Zamfara State come 2023.
Sen. Anyim particularly commends the rare courage and resilience of PDP members in Zamfara State, who stood their grounds, endured untold intimidation, physical assault, suffered huge loss of personal property, including vehicles and the vandalization of the State party headquarters, when hired thugs invaded the venue of the State congress and disrupted the proceedings.
Sen. Anyim, condemns in the strongest of terms, the vicious and senseless inversion of the venue of Zamfara State PDP congress and the assault on innocent PDP members by thugs sponsored by individuals who use public resources and positions of authority to intimidate innocent law-abiding citizens.
Sen. Anyim recalls, with regret, a similar action in Ebonyi State on the 29th of December, where hired thus and hoodlums invaded and disrupted a civic reception organized in honour of Ebonyi State PDP Chairman, Mr. Ugochukwu Okorie by his Okposi community in Ohaozara Local Government Area of Ebonyi State. Sen Anyim strongly condemns thuggery, violence, politics of hate and intolerance, the spate of which is beginning to rise as 2023 draws nearer. He reminds perpetrators of violence and their sponsors that their actions and activities are making life more difficult for innocent citizens and tarnishing the image of Nigeria in the global community.
Sen Anyim urges the Col. Bala Mande led Zamfara State executive Committee to remain focused, bold, fearless and upright in the discharge of their duties. He charges Zamfara State PDP members, other PDP members all over the country and indeed all Nigerians, to remain hopeful that Nigeria will, again, return to the era of peace, good governance and respect for the rule of Law from the 29th of May, 2023 by the grace of God and collective will of Nigerians.
