The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has taken a stand against the presidential ambition of the Labour Party (LP) candidate, Peter Obi.
Speaking further, he described Obi’s 2023 presidential ambition as an ill-conceived idea which is dead on arrival.
He said, “I hate being sentimental on important issues and like saying the raw truth without minding whose ox is gored.
“Labour Party members will work against APGA candidates in the forthcoming general election and it is also expected of APGA faithful to work against Peter Obi and other Labour Party candidates in the election.
“Anybody expecting APGA faithful to work in favour of Peter Obi in this 2023 election is dwelling in self-deceit and living in fool’s paradise.
“Such a thing will not work because no sane person will take the fish in his or her boat to the boat of a political enemy.
“I don’t know how to paint words or to be economical with the truth hence my reason for maintaining my stand that Peter Obi’s ill-conceived presidential ambition is dead on arrival.”
Soludo Doesn’t Need To Speak
Speaking against the backdrop of the recent denial by the Anambra State Governor, Charles Soludo who debunked claims of working to truncate Obi’s ambition, Obigwe stated that the Governor doesn’t need to speak as APGA members know they only have their own party candidates to support.
He said; “Governor Chukwuma Soludo does not need to tell APGA faithful to work against Peter Obi because they already know that it is the right thing for them to do in the interest of our party, APGA.
“The evil plot of Obi for APGA candidates to suffer bandwagon effect in this 2023 general election will fail.
“It will die a natural death because APGA faithful are committed to working in favour of all APGA candidates in this 2023 general election.”
