Chukwunyere noted that the decision to suspend Soludo was taken at a meeting by the party stakeholders on Tuesday night.
The acting Publicity Secretary added that the APGA faction resolved to suspend Soludo, who is a governorship aspirant of the party, due to his activities said to be threatening the unity of the party.
Chukwunyere stated, “The NWC also applauded the members of the party in Anambra State who thronged to the ward offices across the 326 wards in the state to elect the three-man ward delegates who would elect the governorship candidate of the Party on 1st July 2021 in line with the provisions of the Party Constitution, INEC Guidelines and the Electoral Act.
“The Party is ready for the July 1 primary election and the winner will lead APGA to victory at the November 6th, 2021 governorship election,” he said.
