Chukwuma Soludo, the governor of Anambra, has claimed that people who want to win the general elections in 2023 with new parties are fools.
In particular, he stated that individuals who joined the Labour Party (LP), like as its presidential candidate Peter Obi, will labor in vain in 2023.
A party without a councillor, according to the governor, has nothing to contribute.
In Amawbia, Awka South Local Government Area, at the Governor’s Lodge over the weekend, he interacted with APGA members.
He mentioned the recent APGA defections to the Labour Party (LP), but said that APGA was still the strongest party in the State.
Some notable politicians in the State, including the former National chairman of APGA, Chief Victor Umeh, left the party to LP to realize his senatorial ambition, after alleging that leaders of the party ganged up against him to make sure he did not pick the
Soludo said: “It is sad that the people that left had to leave, why would one leave a party he had laboured to build? It is not good to labour in vain.
“However, they are not contesting elections. The election in Anambra is between APGA and other political parties. APGA remains the third in Nigeria as the country inches closer to the 2023 general elections.
“Elections are not done on WhatsApp or the Internet. You have to be on ground. APGA is on ground here and everywhere. How can a party that does not have a councillor want to compete with us?
“We are strong and we are growing stronger, stand a real chance in Abia, we will compete in all places vigorously.
“We shall campaign when it starts, and by the time we enter January next year, we will know those that are still contesting.
“Our victory will be resounding this time, but we will not take anything for granted, Anambra people will see.”
