Anambra Poll: Obiano Mocks APC, PDP over Inability to Choose Running Mates

Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, has mocked the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for showing signs of ‘unpreparedness for the task of governing the state’.

The governor said two weeks after both parties held their primary elections and elected candidates, they are yet to announce their running mates, “showing that they were not prepared for the contest.”

Obiano was quoted in a statement signed by the state Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Mr. C. Don Adinuba, as stating that such measure of unpreparedness has given his party, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) an edge in the forthcoming state election.
