Anambra 2025: Ifeanyi Ubah’s APC, Ozigbo’s LP not a threat to APGA- Maja Umeh


By Our Correspondent
A member of the Board of Trustees, BoT, of the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, in Anambra State and a Grand Patron of the party, Chief Maja Umeh, has dismissed the recent defection of the senator representing Anambra South, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah from the Young Progressives Party, YPP, to the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the alleged positioning of Mr. Val Ozigbo as the likely candidate of the Labour Party, LP, ahead of the 2025 governorship election in the state, as no threat to APGA.
Although the next governorship election in the state is still more than two years away, a lot of horse trading has already begun, with both APC and LP strategizing to uproot APGA from 20 years of governance in the state.
In an interview in Awka, Umeh, who was the Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism during the administration of former Governor Peter Obi, said it would be very difficult for another political party to dislodge APGA in Anambra State in view of the good governance it had provided to the people over the years.
He said: “I don’t think the APC and LP will pose any threat to the reelection of Professor Chukwuma Soludo. This is not the first time we are seeing such things.
“Those of us in APGA always see the high and mighty in other political parties, but one thing is certain and that is that we will always defeat them. Remember the Ubas and the Ngiges who we had always defeated.
“Unless you join APGA, it will be difficult for you to be the governor of Anambra State. It is extremely difficult to uproot APGA in this state.
“We are not a major opposition to any party, as we are just a party there for service to our people. We are not causing trouble for anybody.
“Anambra people believe in APGA as it is not like other older and bigger parties which they have rejected. The people believe in the party because it has been meeting their expectations.
“For instance, under Peter Obi, a lot of successes were achieved and government and the people were happy. After experiencing PDP under Mbadinuju and Ngige governments, Anambra settled for APGA under Peter Obi, who handed over to Willie Obiano.
“Today, we have one of the best governors in the country. Our people are consistent and with the recent BudgiT report which moved Anambra up to number five, Professor Soludo is laying a solid foundation and attacking infrastructure decay and focusing on human development which are the indices that move a state forward.”
According to Umeh, the good thing is that because of their love for APGA government, many people have expressed their preparedness to contribute their quota by coming home to build factories that employ more people.
