The Peoples Democratic Party in Anambra state has described the incumbent Gov Willie Obiano as the last to be produced by the rival All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) vowing to take over the State in the next governorship poll.
Describing Anambra as its birthright, leader of PDP reconciliation committee in the state, Mr Ngozi Agudozi, stated this at Nnewi South Local Government Area, where he held one of the series of the reconciliation meetings with stakeholders and individuals of the party.
Agudosi traced the history of PDP in the state to the late former Vice President, Dr Alex Ekwueme, and said Anambra had kindred affinity and interest in the party.
According to him, “I saw the crying and pains of party members at the grassroots. They are seeking for someone to give them sense of direction, which I will provide. That’s why they are embracing it.
” I only consulted my leaders from the state in Abuja and I told them I’m going on this mission. Olisa Metu, Peter Obi and Chris Uba are my political leaders, but none of them sent me here. I’m here based on the interest for the state. And all of us are working together.
“APGA is like a faction of PDP in Anambra state. Today, they are claiming to have won 21/21 in the last polls which most of them can’t explain how it happened.
He pointed out that, “By the time I am through with this mission, we are going to say bye bye to APGA in Anambra State. I’m not boasting. Obiano will be the last governor of APGA in Anambra State. After Obiano, there won’t be any other APGA governor in Anambra.
“Take it from me, this state belongs to us. There is no man, big or small in the state that have not drunk from the milk of PDP.
A university don in the state had at the inauguration of Gov Obiano’s second term last March 17, boasted that his alma Mater, the Christ the Kings College (CKC)Onitsha would continue to produce APGA Governors for the century in the state.
