The All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA executives and stakeholders in Aguluzigbo, Anaocha Local Government Area, Anambra State have denied ever endorsing Dr Elo Aforka, a members of the cabinet in the state to compete with his boss, Governor Willie Obiano for the governorship seat.
The executives and stakeholders of the party in Aguluzigbo after their respective emergency meetings issued a statement, signed by Mr. Marcel Okafor and Mr. Ebele Aniekwe, Chairman and Secretary respectively, of APGA Aguluzigbo Ward, disassociated themselves from the alleged endorsement of Dr Aforka and his governorship ambition.
They also had a joint meeting in the Aguluzigbo where they declared that “the entire APGA Aguluzigbo Ward Executive and stakeholders never endorsed or supported the Governorship ambition of Dr Elo Aforka as allegedly claimed by him as contained in FaceBook.”
“The purported endorsement by Aguluzigbo Ward of APGA as carried on the FaceBook never took place, our unflinching support to His Excellency, Chief Willie Obiano, the Governor of Anambra State and his second term bid is total.”
In another statement signed by 21 APGA executive members and 28 APGA stakeholders, who personally wrote their names and signed their signatures, they condemned Dr Aforka’s ambition, declaring it “as huge joke of the year.”
“We disassociate ourselves and condemn in strong terms and in its entirety the so called Anambra State governorship ambition of Dr Aforka and our purported endorsement of same.
“Dr Elo Aforka is currently serving in the present administration of our ever working Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, it is confirmed beyond reasonable doubt that he is being used by political opponents of Chief Willie Obiano, and Chief Victor Umeh, to bring irreparable distrust, misunderstanding and damage to the relationship to their relationship.
“The purported endorsement of Dr Aforka by APGA in Aguluzigbo is also to destroy the good relationship the entire Aguluzigbo town has with the Governor, under whose administration we massively benefited in governmental infrastructural development, such as roads, markets, health centers and political appointment, to mention but a few.
“The entire Members of APGA in Aguluzigbo at home, abroad and in Diaspora do herby reaffirm strongly and incontrovertibly their unflinching support to Chief Obiano’s government and his second term bid which shall definitely come to full realization.”
