Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State has mocked the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, over his ambition to be the next President in 2023.
Soludo asked the former Anambra Governor to stop dreaming of succeeding President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023, stressing that elections are not won on the internet.
The governor described politicians who left the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and defected to other parties to win the 2023 general elections in the state under new parties as jokers.
Soludo stated this at the weekend with APGA members at the Governor’s Lodge, Awka South Local Government Area of the state.
The governor also mocked the former National Chairman of APGA, Chief Victor Umeh, for leaving the party to realize his Senatorial ambition. Soludo boasted that APGA remained the most formidable party in the state.
He said: “It is sad that the people that left had to leave, why would one leave a party he had laboured to build? It is not good to labour in vain.
However, they are not contesting elections. The election in Anambra is between APGA and other political parties. APGA remains the third in Nigeria as the country inches closer to the 2023 general elections.
Elections are not done on WhatsApp or the Internet. You have to be on ground. APGA is on ground here and everywhere. How can a party that does not have a councillor want to compete with us?
We are strong and we are growing stronger, stand a real chance in Abia, we will compete in all places vigorously.
We shall campaign when it starts, and by the time we enter January next year, we will know those that are still contesting.
Our victory will be resounding this time, but we will not take anything for granted, Anambra people will see.”
