Anambra State Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, has said former members of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, who defected to other parties made the wrong decisions.

Soludo stated this while addressing some faithful at the Governor’s Lodge, Amawbia, Awka, on Sunday.

He said APGA remained the most formidable party, being the third largest party in the country.

He said, “It is sad that the people that left had to leave, why will one leave a party he had laboured to build? It is not good to labour in vain.

“However, they are not contesting elections. The election in Anambra is between APGA and other political parties.”

Soludo was racting to the defection of a former APGA national chairman, Victor Umeh.

Umeh had left APGA for the Labour Party, where he clinched the senatorial ticket, after losing the APGA ticket.

He cited an alleged conspiracy against him by some members of APGA in the state, where he had lost his bid to return to the Senate for the second time.

However, Soludo said the party remained third in Nigeria as the country inches closer to the 2023 general elections.

He added, “Elections are not done on WhatsApp or the Internet. You have to be on the ground. APGA is on ground here and everywhere, how can a party that does not have a councillor want to compete with us?

“We are strong, and we are growing stronger, stand a real chance in Abia, we will compete in all places vigorously.

“We shall campaign when it starts, and by the time we enter January next year, we will know those that are still contesting.

“Our victory will be resounding this time, but we will not take anything for granted, Anambra people will see.”
