APC Can’t Take Anambra, Soludo Will Still Win, Says Aforka


AWKA – An All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) stalwart who also represents Orumba North Constituency in Anambra State House of Assembly, Hon Emeka Aforka has predicted that despite the short-lived rumblings in the party, its candidate, Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo will still win in the November 6, 2021 Governorship election.

Aforka who spoke to journalists in Awka Thursday said all the activities of political gladiators were to distract APGA faithful, but that the authentic candidate for the party remained Soludo.

He said there is no way All ProgressivesCongress (APC) which has no history in Anambra State will win.

He said: “History will repeat itself in Anambra state. The history of winning election in Anambra state, the history of 21/21 recorded in the last election of Governor Willie Obiano: overwhelming victory will repeat itself come November 6, 2021. 

“APGA as a political party is a party to be with. We are fully on ground irrespective of various schemings  in the party. Just like in every family, you always have one or two issues. So you can’t rule it out there is no issue in any family. But in the case of APGA, we are taking care of the issues and we are going to make it. APGA will take over Anambra state again”, he declared.

On the struggle by Hon. Chukwuma Umeoji to take APGA ticket, Aforka said: “APGA has made a unanimous decision. We have made our choice. APGA as a political party has made its choice.  In fact our choice is the best.  The right candidate for APGA in the person of professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo is our choice as a family. 

“We are pleading with  the aggrieved members to have a rethink. We are one family and the family has strongly decided whom to support. We have made the choice and our choice stands. 

“I don’t know why somebody should go to court to waste his resources. If you use that money to support the party to win the election, it would have been better and the party will go very far”. 

Aforka reminded that everybody cannot be a governor of Anambra state.

According to him, “everybody is interested to become a governor, I am interested to become, you are interested to become a governor, but everybody must not be there.

“It must be one at a time. So for now it is the time of Soludo. I advise those aggrieved members to queue behind Soludo and support the party.”

Aforka described as a joke the APC’s permutations to take over Anambra State describing it as a joke.

According to him, “Anambra has a very strong political system. So APC will not make APGA to lose sleep.  I see their threat as an empty threat. It doesn’t work like that in Anambra state.  It is not like a banana state where everybody can come in and do whatever one one wants and go scot-free, no, it is not like that. 

“I believe our vote counts. Anybody banking his or her hope on federal Mite is day- dreaming, because it will never work.  So we are not losing sleep. 

“We are busy consolidating our grassroots level, making sure that our party and people are mobilized”#
