2023: Soludo Dumps Peter Obi, Reveals Preferred Presidential Candidate

Anambra State Governor Charles Soludo has confirmed his support for the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) presidential candidate, Justice Peter Umeadi.

This is despite the governor’s criticism of Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi, claiming that the Obidient Movement is an offshoot of the Peoples Democratic Party.

According to his Special Adviser on Political Matters, Dr Alex Obiogbolu, a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, APGA remains the country’s third largest political party.

Soludo, who believes that the main opposition party was unjust to the Southeast by zoning its president to the north, believes that backing any other party could harm APGA’s chances in the 2023 general election.

He said: “APGA remains the third largest political party in Nigeria, considering the number of political offices it has won.

“APGA has a State governor, members of the National Assembly and members of the state assemblies.

“APGA does not consider the wave of the ‘Obidient Movement’ as a threat towards achieving its set goals in 2023.

“The LP and the ‘Obidient Movement’ are offshoots of the PDP. Therefore, they pose a big threat to PDP, not APGA”.
