2023 Presidency: We didn’t endorse any candidate – Idemili monarchs




Traditional rulers in Idemili North and South Local Government Areas of Anambra State, yesterday, denied endorsing the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar for the 2023 polls.

In a statement issued on Monday ,  the chairman of the group, Igwe Chuma Agbala and his vice, Igwe Nick Obi described  the trending report that the traditional rulers endorsed Atiku during their quarterly meeting as misleading, explaining  that what happened was that one of their illustrious sons, Chief Obiora Okonkwo visited them during the a meeting held in Ogidi and informed them of his new position in his party, the PDP, and nothing more.

“The publication or information circulating in the news media of the purported endorsement of a PDP presidential candidate is not true.

“The fact is that the Idemili North and South Traditional Rulers Forum held its quarterly meeting at the Idemili North Local Government Headquarters, Ogidi where Chief Obiora Okonkwo came and said that he was appointed as one of the PDP Anambra State coordinators.

“That was it, and there was nothing like the endorsement of any political party or her flag bearer.

“We, the traditional rulers of Idemili North and South do not indulge in partisan politics and as such, would not dump or endorse or move to endorse any political party’s candidate. We are royal fathers and hence are fathers to all,” the statement read.
