The All Progessives Grand Alliance Media Warriors’ Forum has dismissed reports alleging that former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Prof Chukwuma Soludo had been endorsed as the sole candidate of the party in the Anambra state November 6 governorship poll.
National Coordinator, Chinedu Obigwe, who stated this on Tuesday in a press briefing in Awka, the state capital assured a free, fair and credible primary election in the party.
He restated the party’s preparedness to retain Anambra State by clinching a landslide victory in the forthcoming November 6 governorship election.
He said, “There is no plan to impose Soludo as APGA candidate for the November 6 election and my advice to those peddling the false rumour is to stop deceiving themselves.
“They have seen the handwriting on the wall and want to use unfounded imposition allegation as a reason for their already foreseen failure.
“Our members should be rest assured that APGA will conduct a free and fair primary election that will be devoid of manipulation for the November 6th governorship election.”
He added, “The conduct of a free and fair primary election in APGA for the November 6 governorship election is inevitable.
“Those talking about a plan to impose Soludo as the party’s candidate are deceiving themselves.
“Politics is a game of horse trading and that is what is currently going on in APGA ahead of the party primary election.
“The only thing is that the governor’s foot soldiers are not happy with those that want to play spoilers’ role game against the party in the governorship election hence the reason why they are doing the needful to checkmate them.
“No stone will be left unturned in ensuring that the pretenders masquerading to be governorship aspirants in APGA are put to shame.”
