Traditional rulers from Idemili North and South local government areas of Anambra State said there is no truth in the reports that they have endorsed the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate Abubakar Atiku for the 2023 election.
In a joint statement the chairman of royal fathers forum, Igwe Chuma Agbala, and the vice-chairman, Igwe Nick Obi, said what happened during meeting between them and representatives of the PDP candidate at Ogidi was not accurately reported by the media.
“The publication or information circulating in the news media of the purported endorsement of the PDP presidential candidate is not true,” royal fathers said
“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 its flag bearer.
“We, the traditional rulers of Idemili North and South, do not indulge in partisan politics and as such would not endorse or move to endorse any political party’s candidate. We are royal fathers and hence are fathers to all.”
