BREAKING!! Charles Soludo Wins Anambra APGA Governorship Primary Election
The All Progressives Grand Alliance’s Anambra governorship primary election was won by Charles Soludo, a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) (APGA).
There were a total of 795 accredited delegates in attendance, with 792 ballots cast.
Soludo defeated the other competitors with 740 votes.
In the November 6 governorship election, he will run as a candidate for the party.
The primary election was held on Wednesday in Awka, the state capital of Anambra.
The ceremony was attended by Anambra state governor Willie Obiano and other party stakeholders.
In February, the former CBN governor revealed his intention to run for governor of Anambra state.
Soludo promised to use his international network to transform the state when he entered the race.
He also commended the current governor of Anambra, Willie Obiano, and described him as one of the best in the country.
Anambra is flourishing well under Obiano, and my aim is to continue and finish all of the governor’s legacy projects,” he had stated.
Soludo was ambushed by gunmen at an interactive town hall meeting in Isuofia, Aguata LGA, Anambra state, only weeks after expressing his interest in the governorship contest.
Three police officers who were providing security for him were slain in the incident, while Anambra Commissioner for Public Utilities Emeka Ezenwanne was kidnapped.
