Stella Oduah says the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was repeating the mistakes that led to its defeat in the 2015 elections.
“I am still waiting for the party to address the concerns and the issues that I raised, the party constitutions clearly stated how primary elections ought to be conducted.
“Mine was very clear. I raised the alert when defects were noted”, she said.
She explained that she wrote to complain and to insist she would not be part of the process if her complaints were not addressed.
“It will be illegal and unjust to follow it to the end, it is like knowing that a hole is somewhere then you are blindly walking into it.
“Anything unjust is totally unacceptable to me and that is where we are now, waiting for the party to address those concerns”, she stated.
Oduah added that if concerns raised by her and some other contestants in the Anambra PDP primaries are not addressed, it would work against the party.
“If the party fails to address these concerns, it means the party has not learnt its lessons.
“I wish the party will revisit and address all concerns because when people are aggrieved and you are not concerned about those grievances, you are saying two things: ‘go to hell’ and ‘there is nothing you can do about it’”, she added.
