The development comes as a surprise to many as the PDP had commended the outcome of the election while Nwoye with candidates of other parties that participated in the election had rejected the results saying the process was marred by irregularities.
PDP national publicity secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, in a statement on Sunday said the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party is in support of the suit filed by its candidate, in the November 16, 2013 Anambra governorship election describing the action as a “step in the right direction.”
The party said Nwoye’s action is an acceptance of the directive of the National Working  Committee party asking him to pursue the mandate in accordance with established democratic procedures and rules”.
The PDP says it remains steadfast to the processes outlined for the Anambra governorship election saying this explains its reason for its directive to its candidate and members to participate in the supplementary  election as directed by INEC.
Expressing optimism that “justice will prevail at the end of the day”, the statement said the PDP “remains impressed by Nwoye’s credible outing, resilience and grass root appeal which brought him to the forefront in the race despite having only two weeks to campaign”. It therefore charged all PDP members close ranks and remain focused in supporting the party and the candidate.
It said the Anambra election and others so far conducted have shown that the PDP is still the preeminent party with genuine followership across the country irrespective of its challenges “and the heinous designs by enemies of democracy to weaken its support base.”
