Ignore IPOB – APGA advises
The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has advised the electorate in Anambra to ignore the call by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to boycott the governorship election in the state coming up in November.
In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja the party’s National Director of Publicity, Mr Ifeanacho Oguejiofor said that the call was unrealistic as nothing would stop the election.
Oguejiofor said, “Nobody should listen to the so called IPOB telling them that there won’t be election in Anambra, it is not possible.
“Whether we like it or not there can never be two states in a state likewise there can never be two authorities or two supremacists in a state.
“Until that is done, Anambrarians should go and register and have their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) so that they can express their choice.
“This is because the choices they make today will affect their future, so they should go all out and obtain their PVCs which is their power,” he said.
Oguejiofor urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to give all political parties level playing ground to enable them transform the country’s democracy, nurture and sustain it.
The director expressed confidence that no political party would beat APGA in the forthcoming polls.
The director also disclosed that primaries would be held on Aug. 15 while Aug. 17 would be for the sitting of the governorship primaries appeal panel. He added that the party would commence campaign on Aug. 18.
