Chukwuma Soludo, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Anambra, has set one-million-vote target to enable him defeat his rivals.
Soludo disclosed this at his campaign launch, on Saturday, in Anambra State.
The Anambra poll is scheduled to hold on November 6.
“APGA is running on a record of performance. The governor is here and has done excellently well. We are also running on a record of hope. APGA has done very well for Anambra and Ndi Anambra want APGA to continue,” said Soludo, a former governor of Nigeria’s Central Bank.
“We will beg for votes; we are not taking your votes for granted, Ndi Anambra. Our target is to be able to reach the one-million-vote mark in this election.
“There are some people who are not hoping to win. Even at gunpoint, Ndi Anambra won’t vote for them but they said they will conquer Anambra, not that they will win Anambra.
“Now, they are carrying money around to buy people, buy some politicians.
“To them, we say Anambra is not Imo. This is Anambra where votes count. This is a democracy where votes will count and if you count the votes, Anambra is APGA, APGA is Anambra,” said he.
Soludo is up against his main challenger, Senator Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
