APGA won Tuesday’s supplementary governorship election in Ihiala Local Government Area.
Senator Victor Umeh has revealed the secret the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) used to win the Anambra governorship election.
Recall that Prof. Chukwuma Soludo won the election after taking victory at Ihiala LGA.
Umeh, who is the collation agent of APGA, spoke shortly after Soludo was declared winner of the contest by Prof Florence Obi, the returning Officer at the Independent National Electoral Commission (Commission (INEC) headquarters, Awka, early Wednesday morning.
Obi pronounced the final result as APGA scoring 112,229; PDP 53,807; APC 43,285 and YPP 21,261 votes.
Revealing the secret APGA used to win, Umeh the people voted for his party because APGA had served the people of Anambra well since 2003.
He described the election as the best in the history of Nigeria and that APGA is proud to have won in 19 Local Government Areas and coming second in two others with slim margins.
According to him, APGA remains deep-rooted in Anambra and anybody who thinks he could displace it in the state must prepare well.
He added that Soludo’s victory is significant to APGA and expressed hope that the party will spread to other parts of Nigeria.
On what to expect in Soludo’s administration, the Chieftain said Anambra is in for a better deal as the governor-elect who had track records of excellent performance already had a manifesto.
He described Soludo as the best from the pack in the race, adding that he would provide purposeful leadership to the people of Anambra.
