AWKAâ€”THE All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Anambra State has faulted the statement credited to the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2010 governorship election in the state, Professor Chukwuma Soludo over the security situation in the state, that the state needs a first class brain to govern it, describing such positions as infantile.
The State Chairman of APGA, Akunwata Kwentoh, said the PDP candidate should look for other things to say because the issue of security cannot be used to deceive the Anambra electorate.
â€œThe same thing Governor Peter Obi and the security agents are saying is at play whenever Soludo talks and that is that the security situation in the state is political. Even at that, with the measures taken by the police in Anambra State, there is no doubt that Anambra remains one of the safest states in Nigeria going by crime statistics.
â€œSince the orchestrated kidnap of Soludoâ€™s father, we have not heard of any issue of kidnap or armed robbery and that is over a month ago. How can one then say that the state is not secure? It is only the likes of Soludo, who do so for political reasons that shout it everyday,â€ Kwentoh said.
On statement that Anambra needs a first class brain to govern it, Kwentoh noted that it was difficult to judge somebody without a past.
According to him, “nobody should be bothered about Soludo making a first class,” adding that what should concern the people is the application of the first class in places where the person found himself.
Kwentoh urged the people not to be deceived, wondering how the former CBN Governor, who could not complete a simple two-storey Central Bank office in Anambra during his tenure, would turn Anambra to paradise.
He called on the people of Anambra State to continue to support Governor Obi,Â who, according to him, has a lot of achievements on ground, more than all the past Governors in the state put together.
