Anambra 2025: I Don’t Want To Be Obi’s Candidate – Ozigbo

A governorship hopeful in the 2025 Anambra state gubernatorial election on the platform of the Labour Party (LP), Valentine Ozigbo said the former presidential candidate of the party, Peter Obi can’t install him as governor in the state.

He also said he would perform exceptionally well in four years if given the chance to rule Anambra state by the people.

He said: “I’m not relying on LP presidential candidate in the 2023 general election, Mr. Peter Obi to install me as governor of the state.

Speaking yesterday in Onitsha at a meeting with LP stakeholders from Anambra north senatorial zone, Ozigbo who officially informed his audience of his ambition to run for the poll, appealed to the party faithful to support his ambition.

Ozigbo, who was the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the 2021 governorship election before he jumped ship, said he would be Anambra state candidate and not Peter Obi’s candidate.

Although I’m a great believer and supporter of our leader, Mr. Peter Obi, I’m not relying on him to install me as governor

“I don’t want to be Peter Obi’s candidate, I want to be Anambra state candidate.”

In another report, no fewer than 100 members of the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), in Anambra state have left the party and joined the labour party.

They said their actions were to ensure the incumbent governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo was not re-elected for a second term as governor.

The decampees, mainly APGA members in Ogbaru local government area of the state were received at the Onitsha Holiday Resort field at the weekend by LP chairman, Ogbaru local government area, Chief Emeka Nwosu.

Others at the occasion were member representing Ogbaru federal constituency in the House of Representatives and leader LP caucus in the House of Representatives, Hon. Afam Ogene and several other party stalwarts in the local government.

Leader of the APGA decampees and former aspirant for Ogbaru 1 constituency of the state House of Assembly under the party’s platform during the 2023 general election, Ndubuisi Igwilo re-echoed that their decision to dump APGA was to frustrate Soludo’s second term bid.

He flayed the governor over what he described as poor performance in the past two years of his administration.
