The National Coordinator APGA Media Warriors Forum, Evang Chinedu Obigwe, on Tuesday said that aside Obiano’s marvellous performance in office for the past three and half years, the love for APGA as a political party that has Igbo identity wooed Ndi Anambra to vote for him.
He made the call while commending Oseka Obaze for his decision to accept defeat and congratulate Gov. Obiano, noting that his (Obaze) decision not to go to court was ‘a good decision in the right direction’.
“Obaze’s decision not to waste time and resources in challenging Governor Obiano’s second term mandate in the Law Court is a good decision in the right direction”, he said.
He equally called on Peter Obi and Arthur Eze to learn from their political godson (Oseloka Obaze) and accept their unexpected, unbelievable and shocking defeat from the working Governor Willie Obiano.
Read his full statement bellow:
“I commend Oseloka Obaze for accepting defeat and congratulating Governor Willie Obiano for winning the just concluded 2017 Anambra gubernatorial election.
“Obaze’s decision not to waste time and resources in challenging Governor Obiano’s second term mandate in the Law Court is a good decision in the right direction.
“I call on Peter Obi and Arthur Eze to accept the defeat of their political godsons and congratulate the Governor.
“The deluge of congratulatory messages pouring in for Governor Obiano is a proof of Nigerians believe that the reason why he clinched a landslide victory in that election is because of his excellent performance in the State.
“Governor Obiano will definitely use his second term mandate to surpass his 1st term in office achievements.
“I am happy for the consensus decision of the trio of Oseloka Obaze, Osita Chidoka and Tony Nwoye not to overheat the polity by challenging Anambra electorate’s decision to re -elect Governor Obiano for second term in Court.
“Even the opposition leaders have agreed that outside Governor Obiano’s marvellous performance in office that another reason for his re-election is because Anambra people are truly in love with APGA and that they see the party as the only political party in Nigeria that has igbo identity and interest at heart.
“History has been made in Anambra with Governor Obiano’s victory in the 21 local government areas of the State.
“The Governor has stamped his political footprint in Anambra State on the sands of time.
“No doubt Mr. Peter Obi is the first Governor in Anambra State that broke the second term re-election jinx but Governor Obiano stands as the first Governor in the State that scored 21/21 in the history of the State governorship elections.
“Such victory is uncommon and will remain indelible in the minds of the people of the State and keen watchers of events in the State”, his statements finally read.
