APGA will end if it loses Anambra election – Soludo
Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), in Anambra state, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, has said the impending (November 6) election is a must win for the party.
Soludo stated this on Tuesday during a campaign tour at Akpo in Aguata local government area of the state, stressing that losing the election would be the end of APGA.
The former governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) urged party faithful to work together to ensure victory at the poll, promising to run an all-inclusive government if elected.
He said: “We cannot afford to lose this election, because if we lose this election it will be the end of APGA. We need to work together and make sure we win this election to survive, and carry on the legacy of the party.
“This is why I have come to you, to appeal to our traditional rulers, community leaders, presidents general, women and youths to vote for APGA.
“God has destined it that APGA is the party that can take Anambra to an enviable height. Do not waste your vote by voting other parties. Let us get there together and make Anambra proud.
“We shall run an all-inclusive and partnership government. We have an agenda for the youths, for the women and for persons with disabilities.
“We shall take education to the next level by taking our students to the digital age. Anambra will become a digital hub which will attract investors and create employment for the people.
“We will improve power supply, construct roads, ensure security of lives and property and make the state an industrial hub to boost business in the state.”
Also speaking, commissioner for health and convener of the Akpo campaign tour, Dr Vincent Okpala, expressed confidence that Soludo’s victory at the poll would ensure continuity of the current government.
He urged APGA supporters to come out en masse on the election day to vote for the party’s governorship candidate.
“We are solidly behind APGA’s candidate because Gov. Willie Obiano-led administration has recorded progress as regards security, health, education road network, economic and infrastructure development.
“We believe that, with Soludo, there will be continuity. He is the most popular candidate among all the candidates because of his outstanding achievements and records,” he said.
