Obi described as preposterous stories making the rounds that the party had settled for Soludo for the poll.

He said:

“We are conscious of what happened in Zamfara where a certain political party won elections but did not rule because of improper primaries. So, we shall hold a proper, free and fair election for the November poll to ensure the most credible person emerged as our standard-bearer."

Obi, however, warned against negative media war among media aides of APGA governorship aspirants, noting that the party would sanction the perpetrators of such acts.

The chairman noted that it is unfortunate that some social media aides delight themselves in running down the names and personalities of party faithful for declaring intentions to contest on the platform of APGA.

He further stated that APGA is a peaceful party in the state, adding that it has been in control of the governance of Anambra since March 17, 2006.
