The National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Victor Oye, has said the party is not supporting the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari.

He made this known following the relationship between Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State and the president.

Some had insinuated that Obiano’s seeming support for Buhari was a payback gesture to the president for allowing a free and fair governorship election in the state in 2017 where Obiano won the poll against the candidate of the APC, Dr. Tony Nwoye.

Speaking to newsmen on Wednesday, Oye said APGA had one of the best presidential candidates in the 2019 race.

He said: “They say APGA is working for the APC; that’s balderdash. We’re not working for the APC; we’re working for ourselves.

“APGA has chosen a presidential candidate in the election, General John Ogbor, and his running mate, Jerry Chukwueke, an international businessman.

“Our presidential candidate is a Ph.D. holder in Anthropology. We’re working to market him and he is highly accepted in the whole North Central. He is a man without any blemish as far as Nigerian politics is concerned.

“He was a director of the army elite corp. That’s not a small feat in the military.

“So, we’re not campaigning for Buhari; we’re campaigning for General Ogbor. That name has been destined to be the next president of Nigeria; you may not believe it; but when God destines something, nobody can change it.”
