2025: Obi not ready to fund your election, APGA mocks Ozigbo


By Our correspondent

The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has described as laughable the claim by a governorship aspirant in Anambra State , Mr Valentine Ozigbo, that he is better than the incumbent governor of the state, Prof Chukwuma Soludo.

Describing Ozigbo as toothless bulldog, APGA said the LP governorship aspirant had no electoral value, but hoping on the sponsorship of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 general elections, Mr Peter Obi.

The National Coordinator of APGA Media warriors Forum, Chinedu Obigwe , stated these in a statement made available to our correspondent on Tuesday in Awka, the Anambra State capital.

Obigwe said,”Valentine Ozigbo is banking on whipping Peter Obi sentiment to become Governor but disappointment awaits him.I have heard many people say that Valentine Ozigbo does not have the muscle to contest the 2025 governorship election.

“He is hoping on being funded by Peter Obi but I reliably gathered from Peter Obi’s camp that he is not ready to sponsor any candidate for the 2025 election and that anybody contesting the election must be financially buoyant to fund his election.

“This is what made some people close to Peter Obi to be pushing him to support Engr Barth Nwibe on the grounds that he has the financial war chest. The implication is that Valentine Ozigbo is not in Peter Obi consideration table and that is to say that he is deceiving himself.

“As for us in APGA, Governor Soludo remains the best choice for Anambra electorate in 2025 and they will do everything humanly possible for him to clinch a well deserved second term mandate.This is because Anambra electorate believe that one good turn deserves another.”

Obigwe maintained that Soludo remained the best for the job, adding that he would not be compared with anybody.

Obigwe’s statement read in part, “It is truly a herculean task for Valentine Ozigbo to convince Anambra electorate that he is better than Governor Soludo and that he has something to offer them.

“Like I always say, Governor Soludo cannot be compared with anybody because he is the best.

“When I see empty political vessels boasting of having what it takes to stop Governor Soludo from clinching a second term mandate, I say it boldly to the ears of everyone that they are wasting their time.

“Governor Soludo is that messiah Anambra people have been waiting for and his divine mission in our state is being actualized.

Debunking Ozigbo’s boast of sterling performance at Trancorp Hilton Abuja Hotel when he was managing the organization, Obigwe said his investigations rather showed the contrary.

Continuing, Obigwe said,”Anambra is not a banana republic where political monkeys will be jumping up and down making unnecessary claims.

“Ozigbo’s visit to Ogbaru Local government is a waste of time because the actual people that made him to win Ogbaru in 2021 are now in APGA and they will deliver Governor Soludo in 2025 in that local government.

“He is busy chasing shadows in other local governments because he knows that he cannot win Aguata 1 and 2 constituency as long as Governor Soludo is concerned.

“In 2021, Valentine Ozigbo only managed to win Amesi his community but lost Aguata constituency 1 and 2 to Governor Soludo.

“He lost his Aguata constituency 1 and 2 to Governor Soludo in 2021 and 2023 elections. That is a clear indication showing that he does not have one single electoral value.

“He is only running his mouth flippantly like someone that is suffering chronic diarrhoea of the mouth ailment. But he is not a match for Governor Soludo in all ramifications.”
