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.
