I can’t defect to APC – Willie Obiano

The rumour that the Anambra State Governor Chief Willie Obiano has made moves to decamp to the All Progressives Con­gress (APC) was yester­day debunked.
Obiano insisted that he is going nowhere from the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) even as he reaffirmed his position to seek re-election on the platform of APGA in the 2017 governorship election in the state.
The Governor’s Se­nior Special Assistant on Media, Strategic Com­munications and Leg­islative Matters Prince Oliver Okpala said the rumoured intention of the Governor’s defection is a figment of the ima­gina-tion of the opposi­tion which can only be consigned to the rumour mill where it has been.
The statement read: Governor Obiano has no intention of dumping the party which has brought so much dividends of democracy to Anambra people.
“The rumour that Chief Obiano is in talks with another political party with a view to jump ship is a wishful thinking of the rumour mongers and at best a calculated attempt by the opposi­tion to cause disaffection and confusion amongst the governor’s teeming supporters.
“Governor Obiano has over the years im­plemented the APGA manifesto which has im­parted positively on the life of Anambrarians and would therefore continue to stay with the winning team and formula.
“The fruits of the APGA platform is there for everyone to see and he would continue to champion the APGA cause just as his re-elec­tion bid gathers momen­tum.”
The statement main­tained that Governor Obiano does not need to dump APGA or join another political party to win re-election as his giant developmental strides and gigantic foot­prints are there for all to see.
According to the state­ment, “as a consummate banker of repute and a principled professional of many years standing, Obiano is not known to be an ideological flirt and would not learn bad manners now as a fully grown political person­ality.
