Reading Time: < 1 minutes

The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has debunked claims that Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano is set to dump the party for the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Obiano who was elected Governor in 2014 on the platform of APGA will conclude his second and final tenure in March 2022 and there have been rumours that he would dump the party for APC in order to contest the Anambra North Senatorial Election in 2023.

However, the National Coordinator of APGA Media Warriors Forum, Chinedu Obigwe, in a statement on Tuesday said the rumours about decamping only existed in the imagination of those pushing it for their selfish political interests.

He added that Obiano remains committed to APGA and there is nothing the APC wants to offer him.

In his words, “Every election season, the disgruntled opposition elements are known for being more desperate and resorting to all manners of blackmail in a condemnable bid to seize power from the ruling party( APGA).

“Governor Obiano is not planning to defect to APC rather he is committed to ensuring that a good successor who will continue the good works he is doing in Anambra from where he stopped emerges from APGA.

“This is the goal he fixed his eyes on actualising and nothing will stop him from doing that.

“Obiano remains a committed leader of APGA that is determined to take the party to greater heights.

“The general public and governor Obiano’s fans are advised to disregard the disgruntled opposition elements’ fabricated tissue of lies in this election season because they are politically motivated.”
