Gubernatorial aspirant of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in the November 6, 2021 election, Chief Zeribe Ezeanuna has vowed to drag the party to court for allegedly discriminating in its sale of gubernatorial election form to aspirants
Ezeanuna who spoke to newsmen in Onitsha, querried the rationale behind sale of forms at a whopping sum of between N26million and N30million for male aspirants and N1million only to female aspirants.
He disclosed he had notified the national body of his plan to drag the party to the Federal High Court sitting in Awka, the state capital over exclusion because he was not able to pay the cost of the form.
He said, “I petitioned the national body and I am filing a suit for exclusion. It is (the) court strike that delayed the entire thing and by today or so we will file a suit at the Federal High court Awka.”
“It is not fair for PDP to exclude people with money; to discriminate on the basis of money,” he stated.
In buttressing his point further, he queried, “how can Senator Uche Ekwunife pay N1million only and I, because I am a man, pay N26million to N30million? It is not fair.
“For those who are doing legitimate business in Onitsha, it is not easy for them to pay such a whopping sum adding. “It is only criminals; those that stole money somehow or those that have access to public fund, that can afford it.”
Asked what his next line of action would be if he failed in his bid to get favourable judgement, he reiterated that, “what happened to APC in Zamfara and Rivers states would happen to the party.”
