As controversy rages over the replacement of former CBN governor, Professor Chukwuma Soludo by Mr. Chukwuma Umeoji as APGA candidate in this November 6 Anambra governorship election, National Coordinator, APGA Media Warriors, Evang. Chinedu Obigwe has vowed that the governorship project of Chukwuma Charles Soludo is unstoppable because all major stakeholders of APGA are solidly behind him.
In a statement released in Onitsha yesterday, Obigwe described the INEC listing of Chukwuma Umeoji as the party’s candidate for the election as a pyrrhic victory, “which is only temporary,” describing also the celebration by Umeoji’s supporters as “short-lived and akin to building castle in the air, as Chief Victor Oye remains the indefatigable National Chairman of APGA and not Jude Okeke .
“It is now an open secret that they procured the Jigawa High Court order on June 28th but concealed it and served it to INEC on 14th July, 2021, a day to 16th July being the day INEC will publish the particulars of candidates of all political parties contesting the November 6th governorship election,” Obigwe sneered.
“They hid the judgment because they themselves know very well that the kangaroo judgment will be quashed. Good a thing that INEC gave Court order as the only reason why Chukwuma Umeoji’s name was published as APGA candidate and what it means is that when the order is quashed, INEC will do the right thing by publishing the name of Soludo that is the unanimous choice of party faithful as APGA candidate for the November 6th governorship election.”
He implored Soludo’s ardent followers to remain in high spirits because weeping can only tarry for the night but joy cometh in the morning.
“Chukwuma Umeoji may be contesting for Governor of Jigawa State and not Anambra State because Soludo Solution Missionary journey to Anambra State cannot be thwarted by even one million oppositions,” he said.
