Anambra 2021: Lawmaker, stakeholders support APGA guber hopeful
A lawmaker in Anambra state, Okechukwu Okoye, alongside other stakeholders, has thrown their support behind one of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, governorship aspirants, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, ahead of the November 6 governorship election in the state.
The endorsement, the lawmaker said, was borne out of the aspirant’s antecedents, adding that those would boost his chances of emerging victorious in the forthcoming governorship poll in the state.

The event, hosted by the lawmaker, attracted traditional rulers and community leaders in the area and party members.
Okoye, a member representing Aguata II Constituency in the state House of Assembly, also noted that Soludo had grassroots acceptance and what it takes to consolidate the gains of the Obiano administration in the state.
In their separate remarks, the transition committee chairman for Aguata local government area, Eche Ezeibe, alongside other key stakeholders called on APGA faithful in the area to increase grassroot mobilisation to ensure that a saleable candidate succeeds Governor Obiano, for the purpose of sustaining tempo of development in the state.
Reacting, Soludo, expressed delight at the group’s continued support and promised to continue on the strong footprints of the Obiano administration. He described APGA as a party committed to deepening democracy in the state and the nation at large.
A silent moment was observed in honour of party faithful who lost their lives when a fellow contestant went to purchase APGA Nomination and Expression of Interest form for the Anambra governorship election.
