All attention is now been shifted to Anambra Governorship election after Edo and Ondo Election has been nipped to an end. Fillers indicates that the Ex CBN boss has been picked by the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) to led the party in the Governorship race.
Just like many others, the party’s State Chairman Norbert Obi also described the development as false.
Though according to the source, the party had stopped all groups from campaigning for anyone as campaigns had not begun, he said some people were working underground for Soludo to carry the APGA flag.
But Obi said APGA was making sure that it followed the party’s guidelines.
The chairman said three persons had shown interest in the governorship ticket, including Soludo, adding that by January, things will become clearer.
Other aspirants, according to Obi, are Sir Damian Okolo, from Nnewi and Sullivan Nwankpo, from Okija
He said: “APGA has not chosen anybody; never mind the rumour-mongers. People have an interest in representing the party, but we should exercise patience until early next year. I hope other names will still emerge.
“APGA is a solid party and a mass movement. Other political parties are just queuing behind it, as far as Anambra State is concerned. We don’t believe in noise-making. All I want to say is that we are ready for the election.”
