APGA, APC Merger best strategy to win Anambra guber election -GCFRNG
Osita Okechukwu, a head of the Congress of All Progressives (APC) has once again reminded the leaders of the Grand Alliance of All Progressives (APGA) of the imperatives of achieving a merger with APC, in the Zikista Model strategy, to win on November 6. Governance survey.
Okechukwu, who is also the Director General of Voice of Nigeria (VON), told reporters in Abuja that APGA leaders must know that it is far better to be late than to be late, insisting that the APGA was on its way to lose. his first position as governor. contest in Anambra after 16 years.
“It is for this reason that I wish to appeal once again to the leaders of the APGA to explore a merger of the Zikist model with APC for a guaranteed uninterrupted victory in the November 6 elections.
“By saying this, I am confident that APC can win without APGA, but would enjoy a perfect victory with a Zikist Model fusion,” he stated.
Okechukwu had recently urged the APGA leader to participate in a very important merger, in order to kill two birds with a staone by joining the mainstream and paving the way for the emergence of the Igbo-drawn Nigerian president.
On speculation that APC was planning a forcible takeover of Anambra through the institution of the state of emergency, Okechukwu explained that a merger of the two parties would not only cool the political temperature, but also moderate the atmosphere and end as a political masterstroke.
He recalled the history of political understanding between President Muhammadu Buhari and the late Ikemba Nnewi, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, and noted that it was in that spirit that Buhari assured Governor Willie Obiano recently last week that there was no cause for alarm as a statement of the state of emergency was not foreseen.
Whereas, I have sympathy for the families of the victims of banditry in Anambra and, by extension, Nigeria in general; However, it is my considered opinion that we should repeat the cordial relationship between Ikemba, Odumegwu Ojukwu and Buhari, when he brought APGA to a political understanding with the late Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) led by Buhari. We can repeat this Zikista feat again, because it is better to be late than late. “
Furthermore, he recalled a similar political camaraderie in 2013, when an APGA faction joined the APC merger, adding that Buhari more or less saved Obiano from opponents of his 2017 re-election bid.
“So, as I said two months ago, the suggestion flows from the prism of the pragmatic Zikista political model, which unites us to the APGA. Pragmatism is the best strategy for Ndigbo to kill two birds with one stone, because if APGA merges with APC, that will give APC three states in the geopolitical zone of the southeast – a milestone. “
Okechukwu insisted that the APGA was losing its mind as it sought to remain a big shot in a small pond of regional politics that has only earned it a single state in the entire federation.
“A merger will not only guarantee more than any other factor to Ndigbo the APC presidential ballot; but it will protect the APGA from withering away, with no tangible dividends of democracy for its supporters. Anyone who has watched Obiano closely in the House of Representatives, Aso Rock, will notice a palpable panic.
