The Anyim4Nigeria Movement has hailed the decision of former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, to run for the office of the President of Nigeria come 2023.
It said that his decision came at a time when the country has been so battered and disunited, with hopes of citizens diminished, poverty and insecurity ravaging the land.
While describing it as courageous, the group stressed that it takes a man of courage, unifier, rich experience, capacity and competence to provide the much needed leadership.
A statement issued on Friday by the Convener of the group, Dr. Laz Ude Eze, reads in part: “We align strongly with the resolution that the presidential ticket of PDP be zoned to the South East in the spirit of equity, fairness and justice.
“As a movement, we are very committed to continue to support every step being taken by Sen. Anyim to win the PDP presidential ticket and the presidential election in 2023 election so as to rescue, reunite, rebuild, reposition and restore hope in Nigeria.
“Our members turned out in their numbers and showed a strong physical presence at the briefing. We enjoin all Nigerians to support this noble project.
“We also commend the People's Democratic Party (PDP) in the South East Zone under the able leadership of Chief Ali Odefa (Odezuligbo 1) for their massive attendance and active participation during Sen. Anyim’s Briefing and Consultation Session with the party stakeholders in Enugu yesterday.
“We also thank many leaders of the party in the zone who attended namely, including Sen. Enyinnaya Abaribe, Chief Eze Duruiheoma SAN, Sen. Theodore Orji, Iyom Josephine Anenih, Sen. Chukwuka Utazi, Sen. Obinna Ogba, Hon. Linus Abaa Okorie, among others.
“Senator Anyim’s speech at the event was very presidential, inspired hope and left no one in doubt of his seriousness, readiness and capacity to lead PDP to victory in 2023, if given the ticket.”
