Barring any last minute change of mind, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) appears set to field a former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Professor Chukwuma Soludo, as its candidate for the 2021 governorship poll in Anambra State.
An APGA chief who pleaded not to be named told The Punch that Soludo was being considered above others.
He said, “You know Soludo gave us (APGA) moral victory in 2017 when Governor Willie Obiano was reelected with his (Soludo’s) axiom: ‘If it’s not broken, why mend it?’
“With this, Obiano and other top APGA members see it as a payback time for Soludo. Besides, Soludo has intimidating credentials and public appeal. We are placing him far above his peers.”
