A stalwart of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) who is also a governorship hopeful in the forthcoming Anambra state guber polls, Dr Alex Obiogbolu said that the All Progressives Congress(APC) can not conquer the state the way it did in Edo.
Dr Obiogbolu who made this statement when the leadership of Anambra North Unity Forum led by Hon Joe Isiagu paid him a solidarity visit to commend him on his positive contributions to the state through his Oganiru Anambra philosophy and programmes.
The statement was obviously in reply to an earlier statement credited to Dr Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour and Employment and the Imo state governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha that APC would take over Anambra state in the next governorship election.
The PDP stalwart noted that the statement credited to the two gentlemen is very unfortunate but has gone a long way to really expose the enemies and saboteurs of Igboland.
Dr Obiogbolu recalled that the Imo state governor in a statement not long ago declared that his state has the worst federal roads in the country and wondered if that level of infrastructural decay is what the governor actually desire for the entire South East state. He requested that the word “takeover” be clarified as APC chieftains have been boasting of repeating the Edo state electoral victory in Anambra state.
The proponent of Oganiru Anambra urged Dr Ngige and Gov Okorocha and their APC overlords to concentrate on what to do to make their party acceptable in the states they have conquered rather than thinking of making incursions into Anambra state with her high level of sophistication in politics.
He reassured the All Progressives Congress that Ndigbo have never been conquered and will not for any reason be conquered in 2017.
