Ahead of All Progressives Grand Alliance APGA primary elections, a notable socio-political pressure group known as Anambra Welfare Movement have warned politicians to stop distracting Gov Chukwuma Soludo.
The calls became necessary when one Mr Ben Nwankwo an aspirant for Anambra South Senatorial District under the platform of APGA, deceitfully parades the streets as Governor Soludo’s annointed candidate.
In a press statement released online yesterday, Ms Rose Obioma Aniagoh a staunch member of the viral group disclosed that the Anambra Welfare Association frowns seriously at anyone who is distracting Gov Soludo.
“Please our erudite Philosopher King, should not be dragged into any tussle now. Every one should quietly go to the Primaries which should be free, fair and transparent.
Please, Anambra Welfare Movement should not tolerate any person or group distracting the Governor from doing his work. Nobody should peddle his name because he is a highly principled and very responsible man.
“Please we will not tolerate anyone distracting the governor. Go to the primaries” the statement read.
It would be recalled that Ben Nwankwo had been cautioned by the party leadership to stop dragging Gov Soludo into the murky waters of Anambra South politics, but he threw caution to the winds, claiming that he was promised APGA ticket, part of the agreement he allegedly made with the governor. It is not surprising, though, Nwankwo’s campaign mantra has been “I’m Governor Soludo’s Senator”. As the APGA party primary elections approaches, the good people of Anambra South Senatorial Zone are battle ready, set to destroy the infamous godfatherism virus militating against good conscience, fairness and equity. They will speak in one voice, and vehemently resist the politics of imposition in the party. The clock ticks!
