The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has denied the alleged deliberate 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 Nationwide Coordinator of APGA Media Warriors Discussion board, Chinedu Obigwe, who quashed the rumours on Monday at a press briefing in Awka, Anambra State, described the declare in some quarters as completely false.
Previous to the election, there was once a danger of a declaration of a state of emergency at the state by means of the Legal professional Common of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN, which was once extensively believed to have brought on Obiano to consult with President Muhammadu Buhari at Aso Rock.
“There was never a time Governor Obiano promised anybody that if Soludo wins the election, both of them will join APC.
“Governor Obiano nurtured a good relationship with President Buhari administration for the betterment of Ndi Anambra. The President respects the fact that Obiano is the leader of APGA and accords him that respect.
“President Buhari did not lobby him to join APC because he knows very well that Governor Obiano will not accept to abandon APGA, a party that has Igbo interest at heart and defect to APC.”
