The All Progressives Grand Alliance has said that it is in the party’s interest to work against the Labour Party presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi, in the 2023 general elections.
The National Coordinator, APGA Media Warriors Forum, Mr Chinedu Obigwe, stated this on Thursday while addressing journalists in Awka. He insisted that APGA will not work for Peter Obi because he is “now a political enemy.”
He said anybody expecting APGA to work in favour of Obi to win the 2023 presidential election is dwelling in “self-deceit and living in fool’s paradise”.
He said, “I 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.
“Anybody expecting APGA faithful to work in favour of Peter Obi in this 2023 election is dwelling in self-deceit and living in fool’s paradise.
“Such a thing will not work because no sane person will take the fish in his or her boat to the boat of a political enemy.
“I don’t know how to paint words or to be economical with the truth hence my reason for maintaining my stand that Peter Obi’s ill-conceived presidential ambition is dead on arrival.
“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.
“The evil plot of Obi for APGA candidates to suffer bandwagon effect in this 2023 general election will fail.
“It will die a natural death because APGA faithful are committed to working in favour of all APGA candidates in this 2023 general election.”
