Gov. Soludo Pledges Support For APGA Presidential Candidate, Says LP Is No Threat To Them

On Sunday, the 13th of November, the Governor of Anambra State, Charles Soludo declared his support for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, Professor Peter Umeadi.

Soludo added that the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, and his supporters, known as the ‘Obidients’, were no threat to APGA. According to him, the Obidient movement was an offshoot of the Peoples Democratic Party.

In a statement by Dr. Alex Obiogbolu, his Special Adviser on Political Matters, the Anambra governor claimed that APGA remained the third-largest political party in the country.

Soludo who had won his governorship seat in the state under APGA believed that the main opposition party was not fair to the South-East by zoning its presidency to the North, and said supporting any other party could affect the chances of APGA in the 2023 general election.

The statement partly read, “APGA remains the third largest political party in Nigeria, considering the number of political offices it has won.”

“APGA has a state governor, members of the National Assembly, and members of the state assemblies.”

“APGA does not consider the wave of the ‘Obidient Movement’ as a threat towards achieving its set goals in 2023.”

“The LP and the ‘Obidient Movement’ are offshoots of the PDP. Therefore, they pose a big threat to PDP, not APGA.”
