The All Progressives Grand Alliance has reacted to the claim by former Minister for Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, on the possibility of the All Progressives Congress to win the 2025 governorship election in Anambra State.
In his reaction, the National Coordinator of APGA Media Warriors’ Forum, Chinedu Obigwe, described Ngige’s comment as a wishful thought, adding that the former Anambra State Governor made the comment to appease some powers, according to the Sun.
He claimed that Ngige knows that APC’s victory in Anambra in 2025 is not possible, as he had tried several times before and failed.
“The statement is only an expression of Ngige’s wishful thinking but deep down his heart and with his own personal experience, he knows that what he is saying is impossible”
“He knows very well that APC taking over Anambra in 2025 can be likened to a Camel passing through the eye of a needle. Ngige on his own, tried many times and failed, so whatever he is saying now is just to appease the powers that be in Abuja and its nothing more than that.”
The statement further said “It’s truly laughable for Ngige to say that a party that is not in existence in Anambra will take over the State in 2025.”
Obigwe averred that in one of Ngige’s recent interviews, he confessed that Governor Soludo was doing well, stressing that the former Minister could not approbate and reprobate at the same time.
“The slogan of one good turn deserves another will envelop the whole Anambra State by that 2025 in a way that even the opposition will see with their two eyes that they cannot stop Governor Soludo 2nd term”
“What matters most to Ndi Anambra is that Governor Soludo is doing well in office. Ngige attested to this fact and for him to turn around to say that APC will take over Anambra is tantamount to him saying that they can make impossibility possible of which me and you know that they don’t have such powers.
“As for Ngige saying that by 2025, he will decide his next political move, I will advise him to bow out honourably to avoid being retired politically in a dishonourable way.
“The truth is that there is nobody in Anambra APC as at today that can match Governor Soludo in all ramifications. No reasonable electorate in Anambra will cast his or her vote for APC in 2025 governorship election because doing that is tantamount to leaving a place of merriment to jump into frying pan.
“APGA will win Alor that is Ngige’s community in the 2025 governorship election and they will win convincingly in the 21 local government area of Anambra State”
