His nomination took place at the Excutive Committee meeting of the PDP, South East Zone, hosted by the leader of the party in the south east and Governor of Enugu , Dr. Peter Mbah,on Friday,October 20Th 2023.
By his nomination, Ude-Okoye, who was the former National Youth Leader of the National Working Committee of the PDP, replaces Senator Sam Anyanwu as the National Secretary of the party.
Briefing newsmen shortly after the closed door meeting, the party National Vice Chairman, South-East Zone, Chief Ali Odefa said that the decision to support Anyanwu was a collective one. He added that the party would do its best to ensure its victory at the polls.
” We have resolved that as South-East members of PDP, we must all do our utmost best to support our candidate in the November 11 gubernatorial election in the person of Senator Samuel Anyanwu to win. All party members in Imo State are encouraged to put in their best,” he further stressed.
He said another resolution was passed to nominate Udeh-Okoye National Secretary of the party in order to allow Senator Anyanwu concentrate on his electioneering campaign in Imo State.
“The position of the National Secretary will be a kind of distraction to his electioneering campaign and victory at the polls. Therefore, the South-East Zone, having met and brainstormed, we have come up with a nomination from Enugu State in the person of Rt. Hon. S.K Udeh-Okoye to replace Senator Samuel Anyanwu as the National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party.
