From Isaac Ojo, Nnewi
APC Patriots, Anambra a pressure group in the All Progressives Congress (APC )has expressed optimism that the party would emerge victorious in the November 6 Anambra State governorship election.
This confidence was contained in a press statement signed by the spokesperson for the group, Victor Afam Ogene.
Ogene who was speaking against the backdrop of intense crisis currently rocking the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance(APGA) and the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) said that the discordant tunes emerging from both parties leaves the state open for APC to take.
APC Patriots, Anambra spokesperson noted that the procedural imperfections that attended APGA’s screening process, leading to the unfazed disqualification of otherwise qualified aspirants and the musical chairs trailing the party’s national chairmanship, APGA’s participation in this year’s Anambra governorship election remains a matter of conjecture.
He said that the group has taken judicial notice of the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to decline the APGA’s list of delegates.
Ogene pointed out that the multiplicity of court injunctions and rulings emerging from the camps of disparate godfathers, and unending disputations over which delegates’ list to work with currently rocking the PDP has cast the party in legal entanglement that can only be resolved way after the November 6 election.
The group commended the governorship aspirants in APC for engaging in electioneering devoid of calumny and underhand tactics and urge them to sustain such exemplary conduct.
