Governor Obiano pledges allegiance to APGA

Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, on Friday debunked the news that he will leave the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) for the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He said he would never leave the party on which platform he contested and won the governorship seat two times.

Obiano spoke to the State House correspondents after a meeting he had with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

“No. Never. That is totally unfounded. I will never leave APGA. I’m the leader and the Board of Trustees Chairman of APGA and again by God’s grace, the governor and governor-elect,” he declared

The governor described APGA as a very strong party in the South-East, saying Nigerians would see more proofs in coming elections.

When asked about his relationship with his predecessor, Peter Obi, he said he had no problem with anybody.

When also asked if he would woo the son of Chief Emeka Ojukwu who left the party back into the fold, Obiano said, “He is of no consequence, I am sorry to say.”

He, however, said he had extended an olive branch to his co-contestants, saying that all of them had congratulated him.

He said individual ambitions could not be greater than the interest of the state.
