Abuja (Precise Post) – The National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) Victor Oye has said Dr Charles Soludo is not disqualified from participating in the primary contrary to information circulating on social media.
Recall that the APGA is currently holding its primary for the Anambra State governorship election in Awka.
A faction of the party headed by Jude Okeke had issued a statement ahead of the APGA primary, saying that Mr Soludo, one of the aspirants in the primary, has been disqualified because of “anti-party activities”.
The National Chairman told PREMIUM TIMES, Wednesday afternoon, that Mr Soludo was participating in the primary.
“Who suspended him? Please forget the impostors and desperadoes,” Mr Oye said in a text message.
“APGA has no factions. We are one, united party. Ask those parading themselves as acting chairman which convention produced them? I am the only constitutionally, legally and legitimately elected National Chairman of APGA. It is not in contention,” he added.
Mr Soludo, a professor of econometrics, was attacked in April by gunmen in his hometown of Isuofia, Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State, during a political gathering.
Three police officers who were protecting him were shot dead in the attack.
It is not clear why Mr Okeke’s faction singled out the former CBN governor for suspension.
