- Anambra state governor, Willie Obiano, has told his fellow governors in the southeast to join APGA, or get sacked in 2019
- The governor stated that APGA is set to replicate its Anambra victory in all the other southeast states, and asked his colleagues to join the party within a reasonable time frame
- Obiano described his party as a hurricane which nobody could stop in the southeast
Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra state has described his party, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), as the ‘Southeast hurricane’, Punch reports.
The governor made his comments at an event tagged ‘Victory Rally/Commencement of Anambra Central Senatorial District Rerun Campaign’, which held in Awka, the state capital, on Thursday, December 14.
NAIJ.com gathers that Obiano asked governors in the southeast to join APGA, if they wanted to win re-election in 2019.
He further disclosed that as the general election season approaches, he had been approached by several senators and reps who had indicated interest to join APGA.
In his words: “What we are telling everybody now is to join APGA within a reasonable time to be able to get the chance to contest election on our platform in 2019.
“What happened here on November 18 when APGA swept the entire poll in Anambra state will be replicated in Imo, Abia, Enugu, and Ebonyi states in 2019.
“APGA is a hurricane that nobody can stop in the South-east. What I’m telling my brother governors in the South-east is for them to join APGA now if they wish to be re-elected; otherwise, sorry for them, they must lose their seats to APGA in 2019.”
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that the All Progressives Grand Alliance said that it will present a presidential candidate for the 2019 elections and will not make the same mistake it made in 2015.
The party did not field a presidential candidate for the 2015 presidential election and there were reports that this was because of its alleged alliance with the Peoples Democratic Party to support its candidate.
