One of the aspirants for the November 6 Governorship election in Anambra state, Dr.



Godwin Maduka, has explained why he dumped the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP for Accord.

Maduka, a US-based pain management expert and owner of Las Vegas Pain Institute, said he left the PDP because they showed signs of unseriousness.

He addressed a press conference in Awka, where he was formally received into Accord.

Maduka, who is now the new governorship candidate of Accord, said that he was disappointed when in just one day during the primary election day, the list of delegates changed three times, leading to his loss of the ticket of the PDP.

He said: “I have no problem with PDP, they are still my friends, a lot of the members are now here (Accord) with me, and I know that on that election day, they will vote for me.

“I was also a sympathiser with APGA (All Progressives Grand Alliance), and I know the governor, and he and many of them remain my friends. I decided to leave PDP and look for a party that I can work with. I know my chairman in Accord, and my chairman knows me. I decided to choose the people I can work with.

"I was already going to win the ticket of the PDP, and the Adhoc and statutory delegates were ready to vote for me, but unfortunately, the PDP decided to do selection instead of election. On the day of the primary election, the delegates list changed three times, and at the end, they disenfranchised all the Adhoc and statutory delegates and used what they called super delegates list.

“I was already going to win the ticket of the PDP, and the Adhoc and statutory delegates were ready to vote for me, but unfortunately, the PDP decided to do selection instead of election. On the day of the primary election, the delegates list changed three times, and at the end, they disenfranchised all the Adhoc and statutory delegates and used what they called super delegates list.

“When that happened, I decided I will look for another party because the PDP did not seem to me like they were serious. It was in the process of searching for a new party that I found Accord.”
