Those who left APGA for Labour Party made wrong move, says Soludo
Governor Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra says the former members of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, who defected to other parties did not make the right decision.
Soludo spoke over the weekend when he addressed party faithful at the Governor’s Lodge Amawbia, Awka South Local Government Area.
He averred that APGA remained the most formidable party in the state, noting that those who left the party laboured in vain.
“It is sad that the people that left had to leave, why would one leave a party he had laboured to build; it is not good to labour in vain,” he said. “However, they are not contesting elections. The election in Anambra is between APGA and other political parties.”
Soludo was speaking in the wake of the defection of former APGA national chairman, Victor Umeh.
Umeh had left for the Labour Party, citing an alleged conspiracy against him by some members in the state. He had lost his bid to return to the Senate for the second time.
However, Soludo said the party remained third in Nigeria as the country inches closer to the 2023 general elections.
“Elections are not done on WhatsApp or the Internet. You have to be on ground. APGA is on ground here and everywhere, how can a party that does not have a councillor want to compete with us?
“We are strong, and we are growing stronger, stand a real chance in Abia, we will compete in all places vigorously.
“We shall campaign when it starts, and by the time we enter January next year, we will know those that are still contesting.
“Our victory will be resounding this time, but we will not take anything for granted, Anambra people will see,” he said.
