APGA BoT Member Afraid Party Won’t Win November Anambra Gubernatorial Election

By Chimezie Anaso

Awka  –  Chief Rommy Ezeonwuka, an All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) chieftain in Anambra, has expressed fears over the party’s lackluster attitude toward the Nov. 18 governorship election in the state.

Ezeonwuka expressed the fear in an interview on the state of affairs in the party with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Oba, Idemili South.

Ezeonwuka, member of the APGA Board of Trustees (BoT), said there were no indices on ground to show that the party or Gov. Willie Obiano was ready for the contest to determine the future of APGA in Nigeria.

He said that the opposition parties in Anambra were cashing in on the party’s seeming docility to permeate the nooks and crannies of the state.

Ezeonwuka said that he was worried because of the seeming lackluster approach of APGA ahead of the election.

“As a chieftain of APGA, I have seen lots of of things going wrong but there are no efforts to correct them after series of warnings.

“As the incumbent government, we are conceding a lot of things to the opposition, it looks that they have discovered that there is a free field for them to do what they wish.

“How can we look on while the opposition is taking over the grassroots of the state?

“How can they be under our nose to strategise on how to oust us from the Government House through the polls and nothing is being done?

“It is an insult that people from other states could come here and boast about defeating APGA when their states are not better than Anambra where everything is working well,’’ he lamented.

“The real politicians are not being carried along; I wonder how we can convince our people with these officials in government who are not close to them.

“This is like a football match and I have said it over and over that we need people who can score goals; the governor is the coach, it is time he effected some changes so that we will not be disappointed.

“From the spiritual angle, I can see that we have not done enough to participate and win this all important election.

“The party, APGA where I am a BoT member is not being carried along, other parties are meeting but APGA is not meeting to discuss this election.’’

Ezeonwuka urged Obiano to impress on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to deploy more machinery to cover the ongoing voter registration.

He, however, said that it was not late to change strategy and proffer the panacea for victory of APGA in November.

“Election is not easy, in any election, you have to make friends, you have to cut-across and you have to negotiate.

“You do not win while sitting in your house, you just need more friends than enemies, and not even the big parties win alone.

“Some of the aides of the governor are not home-based before now, I have not said they should be removed but they should go to their people and find out who the stakeholders are and get them on board,’’ he said.

  1. Governor Willie Obiano, the only serving governor in Nigeria under the umbrella of APGA might seek for a second term under the same party in the November election.
