Soludo will repeat CBN-like miracle as Anambra gov –APGA chair

Victor Oye, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, has predicted that Chukwuma Soludo, the victor of the November 6 governorship election in Anambra State, will repeat his triumph at the Central Bank of Nigeria once sworn in by March 2022.

He talked to The PUNCH in an exclusive interview on Wednesday, just after the Independent National Electoral Commission proclaimed Soludo the winner of the drawn-out election that finished with a supplementary poll in the state’s 21st local government.

Soludo, who is sixty-one years old, defeated Valentine Ozigbo of the Peoples Democratic Party, who received 53,807 votes, and Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress, who received 112,229 votes.

Commenting on the development, the APGA national chairman said, “This is a victory for democracy, not only for APGA but for all Nigerians because INEC has set a pace, an example worthy of emulation.

“The BVAS despite initial hiccups was able to deliver a free and transparent election. That is most important. We are a nation that is on the move to greatness. So, we keep experimenting. The BVAS experiment was worth the while and we are very happy and satisfactory that our efforts paid off eventually.”

Oye said Soludo, a governor at the apex bank between 2004 and 2009, is the best candidate in the just concluded election.

“Our candidate for this election, Chukwuma Soludo, is the best anybody could have had and we are confident that he is going to deliver the dividends of democracy for our people and we hope all Nigerians are happy with us.

“There were so many tensions and too many expectations from the people because of the man at the centre of the storm, Chukwuma Soludo. This is because they know he’s coming to transform Anambra,” he said.

‘APGA can conquer South-East states’

In addition, the APGA chair stated that if the party wins in Anambra State again, it would be able to acquire the remaining four states in the South-East geopolitical zone.

Currently, the All Progressives Congress controls Imo and Ebonyi states, while the Peoples Democratic Party controls Abia and Enugu. Willie Obiano of the APGA is the present governor of Anambra, and he is slated to pass over to Soludo in March 2022.

“We are a very humble political party and extremely focused,” Oye said when asked about APGA’s chances in the zone. We don’t operate with emotionalism; instead, we work with the reality of the time.

“As far as we are concerned, South-East is conquerable; we can take the whole South-East because in Anambra, we have performed as a political party, we have shown leadership.

“We are going to extend our ties to other states and places in the federation so they will key in.”
