APGA faction suspends Soludo

Chukwuma Soludo

A faction of the All Progressives Grand Alliance led by Jude Okeke on Wednesday announced the suspension of Anambra governorship frontrunner Prof. Chukwuma Soludo.

The former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria was suspended for alleged anti-party activities.

Acting national spokesman of the faction Ikechukwu Chukwunyere stated this while briefing journalists in Abuja.

According to Mr Chukwunyere, the decision to suspend Soludo was taken late Tuesday night at a meeting of the party where “three-member ward delegates were elected for the July 1, governorship primaries of the party.”

He said, “The NWC also applauded the members of the party in Anambra State who thronged to the Ward offices across the 326 Wards in the state to elect the three-man Ward delegates who would elect the Governorship candidate of the Party on 1st July, 2021 in line with the provisions of the Party Constitution, INEC Guidelines and the Electoral Act.

“The Party is ready for the July 1 primary election and the winner will lead APGA to victory at the November 6th, 2021 Governorship election.”

Chukwunyere described the governorship primary election held in Awka on Wednesday, June 23, as “a sham and effort in futility maintaining that in due time, the courts will declare it as invalid, unconstitutional, null, void and of no effect whatsoever.”
