The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has said it has no plans to work for the presidential aspiration of the Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi, for the 2023 general elections.
The national coordinator, APGA Media Warriors Forum, Chinedu Obigwe, who said this at a press conference in Awka, Anambra State, yesterday, insisted that it was in the best interest of the party to work against Obi in favour of APGA candidates.
According to Obigwe, APGA faithful have remained committed to working in favour of all its candidates in the elections. He said anybody expecting APGA to work in favour of the former Anambra State governor in the 2023 election is dwelling in “self-deceit and living in fool’s paradise”.
According to him, working against Obi is the right thing to do in the best interest of APGA. He further said, “Our self-acclaimed St. 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. 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”.
“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”, he noted.
