AWKA—A group, Ikemba Front, has denied media reports that the Peoples Democratic Party,PDP, was plotting to stop former Central Bank of Nigeria governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, from emerging as the flag-bearer of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, in the November 16 governorship election in Anambra State.
A statement by its National Coordinator, Mr. Okobi Nnabuenyi, described the alleged PDP meddlesomeness in the party’s affairs as an affront on the leadership of APGA and the entire Igbo land.
His words: “The news that PDP leadership at the highest level is plotting to influence the choice of APGA candidature in the November 16 governorship election in Anambra State is simply despicable and, therefore, totally unacceptable to the entire members of our great party.
“APGA is in contest for who becomes governor of Anambra State from March next year when our dynamic leader Mr. Peter Obi would be concluding his tenure.”
