Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra state has described his party, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), as the ‘Southeast hurricane’, Punch reports. The governor made his comments at an event tagged ‘Victory Rally/Commencement of Anambra Central Senatorial District Rerun Campaign’, which held in Awka, the state capital, on Thursday, December 14
He further disclosed that as the general election season approaches, he had been approached by several senators and reps who had indicated interest to join APGA. In his words: “What we are telling everybody now is to join APGA within a reasonable time to be able to get the chance to contest election on our platform in 2019.
“What happened here on November 18 when APGA swept the entire poll in Anambra state will be replicated in Imo, Abia, Enugu, and Ebonyi states in 2019.
“APGA is a hurricane that nobody can stop in the South-east. What I’m telling my brother governors in the South-east is for them to join APGA now if they wish to be re-elected; otherwise, sorry for them, they must lose their seats to APGA in 2019.”
