Politics APGA, to Uphold Soludo’s Disqualification


Chief Mike Kwentor,Chairman ,All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) ,Anambra chapter, said it would not overrule the disqualification of Professor Charles Soludo and 5 other aspirants for ticket the party’s governorship ticket.

According to Kwentor, the constitution says you must be eligible to vote before you can be voted for and for you to be eligible to vote, you must have voter’s card.

“So, I think that the Screening Committee disqualified those they disqualified based on cogent reasons.

“I am sure that even those disqualified know that the reason for which they were disqualified was cogent, otherwise, they will appeal because the party made provision for appeal,” he said.

The Alhaji Tayo Sowunmi-led Screening Committee screened the 14 gubernatorial aspirants on Friday and disqualified six aspirants.

Reasons for disqualification include non-possession of voter’s card, tax clearance, lack of evidence of sound financial muscle, and unresolved issue with the Economic and Financial Crime Commission.
