Awka (NAN) National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Dr Victor Oye, says the party has a strong hold on Anambra State to win any election.
He also said that no APGA member needs to leave it for another party before winning an election in Anambra State.
Oye, who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Awka on Wednesday, was dispelling the rumour that Gov. Willie Obiano of Anambra was decamping from APGA to APC.
The APGA chieftain said that Obiano’s achievement in terms of socio-economic development would give him the ticket during election for second term.
The governorship election would be held in Anambra, which is the only APGA-ruling state, in November.
“It is a deliberate campaign by the detractors of Gov. Willie Obiano to smear his integrity and pit him against our party and also use it (to)
scatter his supporters and confuse them.
“I wish to state here unequivocally that Gov. Willie Obiano has never expressed any intention to join the APC.
“He doesn’t need APC to win election; he has performed and APGA is the reigning party here. I want to state it here that no party can beat APGA in Anambra state, in any election.
