There were talks amongst the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP and aspirants who lost at the just concluded gubernatorial primary in Imo state.

According to inside PDP sources, amongst strong issues in the front burner in the reconciliation, readoption and reconstruction parley was how to incorporate Senator Samdaddy Anyanwu into the senatorial race in order to ensure victory for PDP.  Though the battle was difficult, but the leadership is yet to come up with any decision even if anyone emerges, there may be adjustments since the names have not been submitted to INEC. But it was pathetic at the voting ground for the senate as the news of the disqualification of one of the senatorial aspirants, Ugo Sly filtered into the venue.
Supporters of the young aspirant have accused the party hierarchy in Imo state of masterminding what they called “embarrassment of the 21st century”. Speaking at Kanu Nwankwo's courts, one of the Ugo Sly associates described the qualification as demeaning. But it was earlier reported that shortly after the official announcement of the result of the contest; Sen. Sam Daddy rejected the outcome, describing it as carriage of injustice, alleging that the exercise was marred with irregularities. He said "I am deeply shocked with what happened yesterday, Oct.1st.  The Electoral Committee Officers from Abuja did a very bad job, their jobs are not clean. The results sheets presented were not signed. PDP should right the wrong and allow the winner to take it. I am going to appeal because of the injustices they did to me. Imo PDP should not allow what happened (the injustice) in 2015 to repeat itself again".
He blamed the Chairman of the Electoral Committee, Sen. Chidozie Nwakanma for allegedly engaging himself into an ugly fowl play during the exercise but expressed hope that the National leadership of the party through his appeal will reverse the case.
