…says he’s a committed APGA faithful
Former Governor of Anambra State, His Excellency, Chief Willie Obiano’s commitment to the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) is well-known and widely acknowledged. Nevertheless, he has urged the Governor of Anambra State, Professor Charles Soludo, to fulfil his promise to pay a disengagement allowance to all his political appointees.
Recall that NewsProbe had reported yesterday that Obiano was set to join the All Progressives Congress (APC).
In a statement, Obiano’s Publicist, Mr Tony Nezianya, notes: ”Chief Obiano’s eight-year tenure as the Governor of Anambra State, he consistently demonstrated his dedication and loyalty to APGA, both in words and actions.
“Throughout his time in office, he championed the ideologies and principles of APGA, working tirelessly to promote its agenda and ensure the party’s continued success.
“It is, therefore, evident that Chief Willie Obiano has no plans to abandon APGA or join another political party. ‘I have no plan now or in future to leave the party’,
“His unwavering support for APGA shows his long-standing commitment to the party and its values.
“There are misguided speculation in a section of the media that he plans to jump ship.
“Meanwhile, I urge Gov. Chukwumah Soludo to fulfil his promise to pay a disengagement allowance to all my political appointees, a promise he made to them in Aguleri at the point of his departure.
”If you cannot re-engage them, you can at least pay their outstanding allowances.
”This will be a more fitting way to end their glorious tenure as well reward them for ensuring his victory polls,” Obiano said.
