Weekly Trust - - News - Isi­aka Wak­ili

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.
