- Professor Charles Soludo might be on the verge of losing his APGA gubernatorial ticket
- Before now, Soludo was the party's chieftains choice for the ticket
- Some influential party stakeholders in the state have decided to hand over the ticket of the party to another APGA chieftain
A report by New Telegraph indicates that the anointed governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Professor Charles Soludo, is on the verge of losing his party ticket.
According to the report, some influential party stakeholders in the state have decided to hand over the ticket of the party to a member of the Anambra state executive council who joined the government recently.
The stakeholders were said to have described Soludo as a hardliner that is so independent-minded and will not be loyal to the party leadership.
But, the state chairman of APGA Mr Nobert Obi dismissed the report insisting that he is not aware of the plot to dump Soludo adding that he is not competent enough to speak on the matter.
Expressing the fears of Anambra South senatorial district losing the gubernatorial slot, a top contender from the area, Chief Johnbosco Onunkwo said: “Though it has not been confirmed but we have been hearing stories about the position going back to where it is at the moment and some are saying ‘let’s start with Anambra Central District District since it has gone full circle.’
“We in Anambra South senatorial district will not sit and watch this to happen and you know that equity is equality and we ask for justice equity and fairness.”
Reacting to the reports, chairman of Anambra South senatorial district of APGA, Chief Titus Anigbogu, noted that the party has not changed its mind on the zoning arrangement adding that those afraid of Soludo are only interested in ripping off the state finance.
“The so-called stakeholders are faceless and do not contribute to the success of the party and we wish to warn all and sundry to discountenance such reports.
“Our brother, Soludo is capable of managing the affairs of the state just like other aspirants from the south so those who are trying to overheat the policy should be aware of the grave consequences,” he said.
Meanwhile, a recent media report claimed that 10 billionaires are preparing to contest the Anambra 2021 governorship election.
According to the report, prominent among the billionaires are those that contested the governorship in 2013, including Andy Uba, Tony Nwoye, Ifeanyi Ubah, and Godwin Ezeemo.
Others are Chief Osita Chidoka, Professor Soludo, Senator Uche Ekwunife, George Moghalu, Chief Stanley Uzochukwu and Chief Nicholas Ukachukwu.
