APGA currently has two factions.
Chike Obidigbo, the factional gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the forthcoming Anambra election, on Tuesday said the party would resolve its differences at the appropriate time.
Mr. Obidigbo who emerged under the Maxi Okwu-led faction of APGA told the News Agency of Nigeria in Awka that the issues of the emergence of two factions would soon be resolved.
“The problem that led to the emergence of two national chairmen and two governorship candidates of the party will be resolved at the appropriate time.
“APGA is one family. There could be three or four candidates. But at the end of the day, when you go to the polling booths you see one APGA, and everybody voting for APGA has voted for APGA.
“So it is a family affair, we have not split. There will be no bitterness. Every member of the big family is a member of the campaign organisation.
“Every member is working toward actualisation of our collective dream, which is to ensure that APGA wins the forthcoming governorship election,’’ he said.
On the insinuation that the governorship election in Anambra might not hold after all, Mt. Obidigbo said that the election would surely hold.
“What you are seeing here now is politics; people are working hard.
“There are many people contesting for this position means that we have a lot of qualified people for the job.
“So, the election is going to hold and the governor will surely emerge come March 17, 2014,’’ he said.
The governorship candidate and industrialist said he joined the race to help improve the state economy as well as empower the youth and women.
“The only way you can grow our economy is to empower the young people and women.
“There is a lot of energy embedded in our young people which we are not tapping and unless we tap into the youths energy, we will not see any meaningful development,’’ he said.
