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

This is even as the governor kicked against the ambition of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, saying the Obidient Movement’ are offshoots of the Peoples Democratic Party.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Political Matters, Dr Alex Obiogbolu the former governor of Central Bank of Nigeria claimed that APGA remains the third largest political party in the country.

Soludo, who believes that the main opposition party was not fair to the Southeast by zoning its presidency to North, said supporting any other party may affect the chances of APGA in 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”.

DAILY POST reports that Soludo, who won the Anambra governorship election in November, 2021, contested under the platform of APGA.
