The Presidential Candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi, has been labelled as “Political enemy” by the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
After a private meeting between the Anambra State Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, and members of APGA, there were widespread rumours that Soludo ordered the party faithful to work against Peter Obi, claiming that the governor was dreaming of the Presidency after Atiku Abubakar.
But Soludo, through his Press Secretary, Mr Christian Aburime, quickly denied the widespread allegation, saying that Obi was never a topic of discourse during the routine gathering, claiming that only issues concerning APGA were discussed.
However, the National Coordinator, APGA Media Warriors Forum, Chinedu Obigwe, while addressing Journalist in Awka on Thursday, insisted that they will work against Obi.
Obigwe made it clear that APGA has remained committed to working in favour of all its candidates in the elections.
According to the him, ” hate being sentimental on important issues and like saying the raw truth without minding whose ox is gored.
“Our self-acclaimed Saint Peter Obi as the Labour Party presidential candidate has nothing in common with APGA as a party and APGA faithful, because he is now a political enemy.
“Labour Party members will work against APGA candidates in the forthcoming general election and it is also expected of APGA faithful to work against Peter Obi and other Labour Party candidates in the election,” Obigwe said.
He added that “Governor Chukwuma Soludo does not need to tell APGA faithful to work against Peter Obi because they already know that it is the right thing for them to do in the interest of our party, APGA.”
