6 Obiano rules out defection from APGA
Anambra State Governor Willie Obiano has described as unfounded, insinuations that he was planning to dump the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Obiano, who was re-elected on November 11, spoke to State House correspondents yesterday after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
“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 said APGA was very strong in the Southeast.
He said Emeka, the son of the late Biafra warlord Chukwuemeka Odimegwu-Ojukwu, who quit the APGA for the APC is of no consequence.
Obiano denied having a rift with his predecessor, Peter Obi, saying “I don’t have a problem with anybody. I’m doing well, I don’t have a problem with anybody.”
He said he was at the Villa to thank Buhari for fulfilling his promise of ensuring that the governorship election in the state was free and fair.
