The All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, has laughed off the claim by the All Progressives Congress (APC) that it would take over Anambra State in 2017.
While asking APC and its leaders to cover their faces in shame, APGA alleged that the the party had planned to use its federal might to cause a revolution that would put other political parties on the run during the 2017 gubernatorial election in the state.
Describing the alleged threat as “treasonable felony,” the Anambra State Secretary of APGA, Sir Tony Ifeanya called on security agencies to note the statement by the APC state secretary and hold him responsible in the event of any such incident in the state.
“We want to draw the attention of the Federal Government in whose name, the APC Anambra State is threatening to cause a revolution in Anambra, boasting that when the time comes we shall all leave Anambra. This is treasonable felony.
Ifeanya said APGA had a firm grip of the state, having produced successive governments that had been doing well and cannot be wished away by the APC in the state.
“The APC and its scribe instead of hiding their face in shame for deceiving Nigerians of a purported change agenda that never was, and for bringing untold hardship to Nigerians because of their lack of vision and mission, are dreaming of taking over Anambra in 2017.
“We do not want any negative change in Anambra State. Obiano is a man with clear vision of what he came to do in Anambra State and is doing it not like APC who has no agenda for Nigeria.
“As I speak, the Federal Government owes Anambra state over N43 billion on federal projects executed by the governor just to ensure that Anambra people are still making ends meet. If the Federal Government of APC has paid the state government the N43 billion it owes the state, our governor will not be talking of borrowing from anywhere after all when all other states were going for bailout our dynamic governor rejected it,” he said.
