SHOCKING!!! South-East Throws Buhari Off Balance, Moves To Adopt ‘The Best Igbo Governor’ As 2019 Presidential Candidate

Emerging report revealed that Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, may emerge as the Presidential candidate of the South-East based political party, known as the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, in the 2019 general elections.

The National Publicity Secretary of APGA, Ifeatu Obi-Okoye, gave the hint on Tuesday, and assured that the party must field a Presidential candidate in 2019.

This announcement may have thrown President Muhammadu Buhari off balance, following the antecedent of Obiano, who won in all the Local Governments of Anambra State, in the just concluded Governorship election.

Obi-Okoye, said that APGA would not make the mistakes of the past, where it did not present any Presidential candidate, but the rather adopted candidate of the then ruling party.

He noted that though the National Working Committee, NWC, of APGA had not micro-zoned its Presidential slot to any part of the country, the Anambra State boss was top on the party’s consideration list for the ticket.

He said: “We have not zoned our Presidential candidate to any part of the country. But since APGA is seen as a political party with Igbo interest, it is natural that we may look for a Presidential candidate within.

“The Governor of Anambra has distinguished himself as a great party man with great achievements; so he is one of our best for the 2019 Presidential race. But one thing is clear; we must field a Presidential candidate in 2019. We will not make the mistake of the past.”

On Anambra Central Senatorial District rerun election, Obi-Okoye said there were no longer any legal impediments stopping the poll, and asked the people of the area to vote massively in the poll that has been slated for January 13, 2018, by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
