Former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Charles Soludo, has been handed the governorship ticket of the All Progressives Grand Alliance ahead of the November 18 governorship election in Anambra State.
The Chairman of the state chapter of the party, Norbert Obi, however, described the report as fake news.
A chieftain of the party, who spoke with The Nation, noted that APGA handed over the ticket to the former Governor of CBN because the party believed he is the only person who can win the election for the party.
The source further stated that the difficulties faced by Soludo has been solved and he has been given a clear opportunity to run on the platform of the party.
According to the source, the party has stopped all groups from campaigning for anyone as campaigns are yet to commence, but some people are working underground for Soludo to carry the APGA flag.
The Chairman of APGA noted that three people have shown interest in the governorship ticket, including Soludo, he added that by January, things will become clearer.
Other aspirants, according to Obi, are Sir Damian Okolo, from Nnewi and Sullivan Nwankpo, from Okija
He said: “APGA has not chosen anybody; never mind the rumour-mongers. People have an interest in representing the party, but we should exercise patience until early next year. I hope other names will still emerge.
“APGA is a solid party and a mass movement. Other political parties are just queuing behind it, as far as Anambra State is concerned. We don’t believe in noise-making. All I want to say is that we are ready for the election.”
