The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra has urged Gov. Willie Obiano to leave traditional rulers and Presidents-General of communities out of partisan politics in the state.

The state Chairman of the party, Mr. Ndubuisi Nwobu revealed this at a recent news briefing on Wednesday in Awka.

According to Mr. Ndubuisi, the crisis between the state government and some royal fathers wouldn’t have arisen if the governor did not involve them to endorse zoning for the governorship.

He added that politics in Anambra should solely be strictly the prerogative and responsibility of political parties.

His words, “It is not the duty of traditional rulers in any way whatsoever to delve into the zoning of the governorship neither is it the responsibility of Presidents-General.”

β€œIt is strictly the prerogative and responsibility of political parties.”

β€œIn as much as the royal fathers have rights to air their views, such views should be personal.”

β€œWe are not worried about the clamour from some people for zoning in the state. Our party will discuss the issue at the appropriate time.

β€œWe should, however, know that the Constitution allows any qualified person to stand for elective positions.”
