The Senator-elect for Anambra Central, Victor Umeh, has asserted that the Governor of Anambra State, Chukwuma Soludo and his All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) do not possess the needed moral justification to seek votes for candidates in next week’s House of Assembly election.
The Eastern Updates recalls that Umeh was APGA’s national chairman. He defected to the LP after he was denied a ticket by the party leadership.
Umeh asked Soludo to apologise to the people of the state, Obi, Ndigbo, and Nigerians in a state broadcast before asking for their votes.

Speaking on a radio programme in Anambra State, the lawmaker said the people had got no reward for voting Soludo as governor, adding that the party did not believe in the treachery for which the new leadership of APGA was known.
He described as unnecessary, Soludo’s plea for votes, which he noted was borne of out fear of impeachment.
Umeh urged the people to ignore such last-minute appeal and vote for LP candidates in Saturday’s election.
Meanwhile, Governor Solduo has threatened to frustrate any member of opposition political parties in the state who emerges a winner in the forthcoming governorship and State Houses of Assembly elections.
The governor, who issued the threat on Wednesday while addressing members and supporters of the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the state, asked the people of the state to cast their votes for APGA candidates.
Soludo according to a video where he spoke in Igbo and obtained by SaharaReporters, threatened that he would never approve any developmental project for members of opposition parties in the State House of Assembly.
