#BREAKING: APGA Reacts To Obiano And Soludo’s ‘Arranged Defection’ To APC


The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has denied the rumoured planned defection of Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, and the Governor-elect of the state, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The National Coordinator of APGA Media Warriors Forum, Chinedu Obigwe, who quashed the rumours on Monday at a press briefing in Awka, Anambra State, described the claim in some quarters as absolutely false.

Our correspondent understands that few days after the Anambra State November 6 governorship poll, rumours started sweeping in  that Obiano and Soludo would join APC, Soludo because he was stylishly invited by APC chieftains, and Obiano because he want to shield himself from harvest of corruption

Prior to the election, there was a threat of a declaration of a state of emergency on the state by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN, which was widely believed to have prompted Obiano to visit President Muhammadu Buhari at Aso Rock.

Obigwe’s words, “It’s important to say it boldly that the battle Governor Obiano fought on November 6th was a battle for the survival of APGA as the only Igbo party in Nigeria. He fought that battle with all his heart and God gave him victory.

“There was never a time Governor Obiano promised anybody that if Soludo wins the election, both of them will join APC.
