Anambra State governor, Willy Obiano has dismissed insinuations that he is planning to dump the All Progressives Congress Alliance ( APGA).
Speaking to State House Correspondents after a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday, Obiano said he is the leader and board of trustees chairman and has no intention of jumping ship.
He said APGA is very strong in the south east and will replicate its success in the coming election in the region.
He noted that the son of former biafran leader, the late Emeka Ojukwu who recently defected to the All Progressives Congress ( APC) has no political relevance in the state.
He said “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.
When asked if he is going to woo back Ojukwu’s son who left the party recently, he replied “He is of no consequence I’m sorry to say.
On his visit to the Villa, he said “I came to see the President to thank him for keeping to his word that the election in Anambra will be free and fair and that is exactly how it went. I’m very happy to come to report to him personally on the success of the election.
“Well, I thank God it is the Lord’s doing. To win 21 over 21 is not an easy task, it just showed the faith the people had in me and that is exactly why it happened and I thank Ndi Anambra for the confidence reposed on me and reassure them that this will encourage me to work harder.
The governor also stated that President Buhari was excited that the votes of Ndi Anambra counted and that that is a legacy he wants to leave behind adding that he wants to conduct free and fair elections without any interference .
On his relationship with Peter Obi he said “I don’t have a problem with anybody. I’m doing well, I don’t have a problem with anybody.
