The governor of Anambra state and National Leader of APGA, His Excellency governor Willie Obiano will likely face a tough battle on Saturday from APGA ward leaders who alleged that they are being coerced into delivering president Buhari.
Some APGA ward chairmen who spoke to Akelicious on the condition of anonymity accused the governor of threatening to sanction any APGA leader found working for PDP or YPP while he openly works for the reelection of President Buhari of APC.
Just yesterday, an online media influencer, Hon Ikechukwu Emeka Onyia alleged that gov Obiano in a meeting with ndi Igwe in Anambra state gave out a 30 million naira to them and urged them to ensure that President Buhari wins in their communities.
The governor has also directed all APGA ward chairmen to deliver President Buhari in their wards. Any APGA ward chairman that delivers his ward to APC will be rewarded with the sum 250,000 naira.
However, many APGA ward chairmen viewed this directive as anti party owing to the fact that APGA has a presidential candidate. They are not happy that most of them that showed support to Atiku/Obi project and Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah of YPP were threatened with sanction when their leaders are also campaigning for APC.
A group of ‘unhappy’ ward chairman said, since their National Leader has abandoned their presidential candidate, Gen Gbor and began an open campaign for APC, that they would also mobilise for whoever they want.
The ward chairmen said that APGA never adopted president Buhari formally and that those forcing them to abandon Obi do not mean well for Ndigbo.
