LATEST: ‘Resign and Allow Tinubu Appoint a Caretaker Governor’ – APC Asks Soludo

by Victor Ndubuisi

If Prof. Chukwuma Soludo continues to support the undemocratic appointment of Local government Transition committees, Anambra APC Publicity Secretary Arch. Okelo Madukaife has asked Soludo to resign as governor of Anambra State and allow the President to appoint a caretaker governor.

In his public statement on the subject, he made the following claims:

“Our dynamic chapter challenges the media and the general public to critically engage APGA party officials to the nucleus of the issues in the systematic annihilation of Anambra State Local Governments, rather than let them dart around contradicting themselves.

“Evasion of issues will not cure the angst and disappointment of Ndi Anambra over the inability of the government of the day to hold local government (LG) elections, within six months as was promised in the campaign to Anambra Governorship elections in 2021.


“On the contrary,APC promised to hold the APGA government, which seems to have lost initiative so soon to account, and are doing so.

“For the second time in one week,Barr. Ifeatu Obi-Okoye has failed to mention the particular suit which he claims APC has in court that has stopped the government controlled by his party from holding LG elections and no one seemed to have returned him to the brass tacks.

“He failed to allude to the fact that Anambra State Independent Electoral Commisdion is paying workers who do nothing and has also failed to acknowledge that as at TODAY,ANSIEC has no board,which has a serious duty in election planning and execution.

“On one hand, Obi-Okoye cites an apex court judgement that, according to him,empowers Anambra State Government to appoint Caretaker Committees until Jesus comes.and on the other, he says the case is pending and no one has taken him up for the glaring contradiction.

“Interestingly ,this is coming from a party who ignored specific court orders to hold its conversation without worrying about the implications,only to invoke uncited and unreferenced cases stopping LG elections.

“If we were interested in the legalities APGA wants to dwell on to divert attention,we would have cited close to seven Supreme Court judgements,which derecognised Caretaker Committees as substitute for elected Local Government. But we are interested in saving Anambra LGs from the state government and allowing our people feel the impact of government at the grassroots rather than being treated to vocabularies from Awka.


“APGA can only tell a blind man that there is no oil in the soup,not that there is no salt.

“Again,while the rest of Anambra State are interested in electing their LG executives and legislature that will be answerable to the people ,APGA is interested in phantom legal discourses of military-type decrees that arm the state government with power to steal the resources of LGs.


“Anambra State citizens and residents are well advised to demand for 21 governments that will be accountable to them and not to be schooled on dictations that seek impossible legitimacy through legality.

“Section 7 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) guarantees that the system of enthroning leadership in the LGs should be through democracy and defending the contrary is a big stigma on APGA

“Whatever APGA members they impose on the LGs as authorities lacks the legitimacy to be regarded, and can at best be APGA Careraker Chairmen.


“Consequently, neither APC not Anambra people will offer them any recognition .

“As henceforth, the recognisable steps to register our non-recognition of those stooges from one party will become clearer.

” LGs are training grounds for future State leaders in a state that has suffered enough from drafting people from trading, banking and academia to do the difficult job that nothing prepared them for,to great disappointment.

“If governor Chukwuma Soludo insists on defending lack of democratic governments in Anambra LGs directly or in proxy,a full year after the time he gave to hold elections has passed,he should resign as governor to enable President Bola Ahmed Tinubu appoint a Caretaker governor for Anambra State and later find a legal justification for it.


“Ndi Anambrz should be prepared to reclaim their right to elect their leaders after 24 years of continous rape ,17 of which have been executed by APGA.
