Anambra Gubernatorial Race: APGA Support Group Declares Support for APC Guber Aspirant



By Praise Chinecherem

A Political Support Group known as 21 over 21 Support Group has collapsed its structures across 326 Wards of Anambra State into All Progressives Congress (APC), declaring its support for the governorship aspiration of Sir Paul Chukwuma.

The group, comprising some former APGA Ward Chairmen and Executives, instrumental to the 21 over 21 re-election victory of former Governor Willie Obiano and that of Prof Chukwuma Soludo, resolved to go back to their various wards to ensure resounding victory for Chukwuma in APC primary election and main election in the State.

The ex-party Chieftains of APGA who were at the country home of Sir Paul Chukwuma in Umueri said their decision to support Sir Paul Chukwuma followed thorough assessment of all the aspirants who have indicated interest in the Governorship Election.

They also stressed the need to save the state from being dragged back to the old days of violence, ethnocentric politics, maladministration and lack of human capital development currently being witnessed under Soludo’s APGA-led Government.

Speaking on behalf of the support group, Mr Nchee Chinedu said “We have looked at Sir Paul Chukwuma track record, we have seen indelible marks, we have seen your progressive mindset and achievements in our political landscape. We have seen your intellectual capacity and we believe Sir Paul Chukwuma is the man Anambra people need at this material time.

“Outside these qualities, we have also found, looking at the mission statement of Sir Paul Chukwuma, a young vibrant man who is at the same time soft spoken, eloquent, articulate and professional.

“On the forthcoming APC Primary and Governorship Poll in the state, our group has resolved to go back to our various wards and register to become full members of APC so as to support the Governorship Aspiration of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chieftain, Sir Paul Chulwuma for the fact that he is a grassroot politician, an entrepreneur and as well possesses the character traits of a great leader.

“He is accessible, humble, brilliant and devoid of the negative drama that has dotted the histories of his competitors.”

Former Member House of Representatives,
Hon. Ifeanyi Ibezi, who represented Sir Paul Chukwuma at the event thanked the Group for their choice of Sir Paul Chukwuma, promising they would never regret their decision.

Ibezi recalled the roles the Former Chairmen played during Second Tenure election of Former Governor Willie Obiano in delivering 21 over 21 for him and how they ensured that Governor Soludo was re-elected.

He regretted that despite all their efforts in helping APGA win elections, they were neglected by the present administration.

“With Sir Paul Chukwuma, we will smile again and with his development agenda, infrastructure and human capital will be re-built again,” he said.
