No Plan To Dump APGA –Obiano

25th November 2017-From Juliana Taiwo-Obalonye, Abuja

Re-elected governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, has said, contrary to speculations, he has no plans to dump his party, All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) for the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).

Obiano, who said he was on a thank you visit to President Muhammadu Buhari, for keeping to his word and allowing a free and fair governorship poll in Anambra.

He told State House Correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Thursday, that he would never dump APGA, dismissing as inconsequential the defection from APGA to APC of Emeka Ojukwu Jnr, the first son of late hero and former leader of the party, Odumegwu Ojukwu.

“No. Never. That is totally unfounded. I will never leaver APGA, I’m the leader and the BoT chairman of APGA and again by God’s grace the governor and governor-elect,” he said.

The governor, who said he has extended hand of fellowship to his opponents to turn the fortunes of Anambra around, assured that he was prepared to work and will not disappoint the people of the state for the confidence reposed in him.

Obiano said the President was excited over his visit and assured him of his respect for the wishes of Anambra people to freely elect a governor of their choice.

Obiano said: “To win 21 over 21 is not an easy task, it just showed the faith the people had in me and that is exactly why it happened and I thank Ndi Anambra for the confidence reposed in me and I reassure them that this will encourage me to work harder.” He remarked: “my party is very strong in the South-east and you will see very soon in the coming elections and from there we will match on.”
