Ex CBN boss Soludo reportedly gets APGA ticket for Anambra state 2021 gubernatorial election
The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has handed the party’s gubernatorial ticket to former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, ahead of the November 2021 governorship election in the state.
The party’s State Chairman Norbert Obi discredited the news, describing it as fake news
According to the Nations, a chieftain of the party, who spoke in confidence in Awka, the state capital, said APGA decided to hand the ticket to Soludo because the party believed he is the only person who can win the election for the party.
The source also said the obstacle Soludo was facing in the hands of one of most powerful persons in the state had been cleared and the person had given the nod for him to sail with the party.
Though, according to the source, the party had stopped all groups from campaigning for anyone as campaigns had not begun, he said some people were working underground for Soludo to carry the APGA flag.
But Obi said APGA was making sure that it followed the party’s guidelines.
Other aspirants in the state, according to Obi, are Sir Damian Okolo, from Nnewi and Sullivan Nwankpo, from Okija
He said: “APGA has not chosen anybody; never mind the rumour-mongers. People have interest in representing the party, but we should exercise patience till early next year. I hope other names will still emerge.
“APGA is a solid party and a mass movement. Other political parties are just queuing behind it, as far as Anambra State is concerned. We don’t believe in noise-making. All I want to say is that we are ready for the election.”
