Join APGA Or Lose Your Seats - Anambra Governor, Obiano Warns South-east Governors

Gov. Obiano

Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano has warned the South-east governors that they will lose their seats if they refuse to join his party. 
While speaking at a rally to celebrate his re-election and to campaign for the party’s candidate, Victor Umeh, for the Anambra Central Senatorial District re-run election scheduled for January 13, Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, on Thursday, fired a warning his counterparts in the South-east.

According to Premium Times, the governor who spoke at the rally held at the Alex Ekwueme Square in Awka, the state capital, said that other South-east governor will lose their seats in the 2019 general elections unless they join his party, the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA.
While sescribing APGA as the “South-East hurricane“, Obiano, who was reelected on the party’s platform last month, asked governors in the geopolitical zone to join the party now as the it is poised to take over the other four states in the South-east.
Three of the governors, Okezie Ikpeazu, (PDP-Abia), David Umahi (PDP-Ebonyi) and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (PDP-Enugu) are up for re-election while Rochas Okorocha (APC- Owerri) is serving his second and final term.

“What happened here on November 18 when APGA swept the entire poll in Anambra State will be replicated in Imo, Abia, Enugu, and Ebonyi states in 2019,” Obiano declared.
“APGA is a hurricane that nobody can stop in the South-east. What I am telling my brother governors in the South-east is for them to join APGA now if they wish to be re-elected; otherwise, sorry for them, they must lose their seats to APGA in 2019,” he said.
The governor further claimed that many serving senators and members of the House of Representatives from the zone had approached him to join APGA.
“What we are telling everybody now is to join APGA within a reasonable time to be able to get the chance to contest election on our platform in 2019.”
