Press Secretary to Anambra State Governor, Mr. Christian Aburime on Wednesday said it was not yet uhuru for those who rode on the back of Presidential Candidate of Labour Party, LP, Mr Peter Obi to win in the February 25 election.
He said those who benefited from Obi’s bandwagon effect should not rejoice so much as there would be another election someday when the bandwagon effect might not be there.
Aburime was reacting to comments credited to National Assembly member elect for Awka North and South Federal Constituency, Prof Lilian Orogbu who he said was attempting to garner popularity with the name of the governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo.
Orogbu, a Labour Party candidate in the just concluded National Assembly elections was seen in a video trending on social media on Wednesday, where she allegedly talked down on Soludo, saying that LP would sweep the House of Assembly seats in Saturday’s election.
Aburime said: “It is laughable that she is comparing herself with Soludo? In the video, she said she was a professor, just like Soludo, how can she even think of equating herself with Soludo?
“She is among those who rode on the back of Peter Obi to win election, but she should not rejoice yet because it’s not time to rejoice.
“She cannot win any election if she runs on her own merit. Those who profited from Obi’s bandwagon effect should not rejoice so much, because there will be another election someday, and the bandwagon effect may not be there.
“Orogbu wants to use the opportunity of Soludo name to gain attention from the people.
“Anambra is APGA, and APGA is Anambra. Come Saturday, the people of Anambra State will show that the state is still an APGA state.”
