Anambra State Governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, has responded to claims by the All Progressives Congress (APC), that it will take the state from him in the next election.
Since Senator Ifeanyi Ubah joined the APC, the party has been exuding confidence about winning the state in the 2025 governorship election.
The state chairman of the party, Mr Basil Ejidike in a recent interview, stated that the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) would die a natural death when APC takes the state in 2025.
But reacting to such claims, Soludo in a press release signed by his Press Secretary, Mr Christian Aburime, said no other party, not even APC which he claims does not exist in the state, would be able to displace APGA.
The release stated that: “APC doesn’t exist in Anambra State. Anambra State is APGA land and will forever remain APGA land because the people have come to accept the All Progressives Grand Alliance as their own political movement and there is absolutely nothing the APC or other opposition parties can do about it.
“We have been hearing what Basil Ejidike, the state chairman of APC in Anambra has been saying. It’s like he is not part of the people living in Anambra State. He keeps saying that Soludo has done nothing; maybe he must have been going around blindfolded.
“There is no basis for comparing Ebonyi and Anambra because Ebonyi has been a state that was under a governor for 8 years. Soludo is just two years in office and look at what he has done so far. He can even match up to other states where a governor has been there for 8 years.
“In less than two years, Soludo has turned the entire state into a construction site and it is only a blind man that will say he does not see what Soludo is doing in Anambra State. But our consolation lies in the fact that Ndi-Anambra are happy with what Soludo is doing and they are ready to support him.
“There are roads for him to see. There are other infrastructures for him to see. There are so many things Soludo is doing and every normal human being is seeing them. Something must be wrong with Basil Ejidike. He needs to check his entire psychological being to ensure that he is actually a normal person.
“Let me tell Basil Ejidike that Anambra is APGA land and Ndi-Anambra will forever support APGA because APGA is naturally our party,” the release stated.
