One of the foremost female members of the PDP, Senator Stella Oduah (PDP-Anambra) has reiterated her earlier claims that the incursion of the Labour Party into Anambra through former governor Peter Obi as its Presidential Candidate does not in any way pose a threat to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and their political standings in the Country.
Senator Stella Oduah made this statement at a news conference which was hosted during the presentation of certificates of return to the 30 PDP candidates who won the party primaries for both the House of Assembly and National Assembly in the previously conducted primaries on Thursday in Abuja.
A total of about 20 House of Assembly PDP candidates and 10 National Assembly candidates from Anambra North and South had been handed their certificates of return.

“This is not the first time a new party is coming to Anambra, we have nothing to fear, politics is local and what we are contesting for is to represent our people and we are more than capable to win the election for the PDP,” she said.
Speaking on the certificate of return, she said it was a happy day for them for receiving their certificates, adding that the journey was tedious, saying the supporters had done the right thing by voting them.

”Anambra is a PDP state, so having this solders with us, you can imagine what will happen when we put our strategy in place, the victory is ours,” she said.
She also thanked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), and the PDP for a credible primary.
