“Anambra is not making progress, they need to join APC and be better for it” – Ganduje declares

Abdullahi Ganduje, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said Anambra is not making progress because the state has been electing governors on the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) platform.

Ganduje, a former governor of Kano, said the southeast state would be happy and better off if they joined the APC.

He made the comment at Nnewi during a colloquium organized by the Southeast chapter of APC.

He said miscalculations have kept Anambra State in political dislocation, which will continue until the state dumps APGA.

His words: “We are here for the South East colloquium, but I prefer to speak about Anambra where we are. Igbo are part of the ingredients of national integration, they are the most travelled and most enterprising people in Nigeria.

“They are creative, innovative, and competitive and this is the basis of the Nigerian economy today.

“Anambra is not making the progress needed. Anambra has had Peter Obi, Obiano and now Soludo all from APGA as its governors, and that is 25 years of political dislocation for this state.

“They need to join the ruling political party and they will be happy and better for it. Why should Anambra continue to live in isolation? If there had been superlative performances on that isolated platform it would have been a different thing. This is a vivid case of selfish politics.

“Other states have joined APC, but Anambra’s refusal to connect to the centre has denied her people the infrastructure and other benefits.

“You have to be at the table to negotiate what comes to you, and if you are not on the table, no one will speak for you. Anambra is the only place where APGA is in government, and the party has refused to grow.”

  1. APC has not been able to fix the nation and is looking for additional responsibility.
    Anambra has indeed been a shadow of itself after the administration of Peter Obi, but APC is the worst-performing government from Buhari to Tinubu.
