Enugu State Governor Sullivan Chime has said the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) is dead.
He said APGA stands no chance in future elections in the country.
Chime spoke while hosting the Southeast Zonal Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), led by the National Vice-Chairman (Southeast), Col. Austin Akobundu (rtd.).
Chime said whatever is left of APGA would finally crumble as soon as Anambra State Governor Peter Obi relinquishes power on March 17, 2014.
He urged the ZWC to take advantage of the opportunity to win the Anambra governorship election in 2014 and that of Imo State in 2015.
Chime warned that the chances of the PDP could be jeopardised if the party presents unpopular candidates.
He said: “I do not see why APGA should be a problem to us in Anambra, because as far as I am concerned, APGA is dead. If we present a popular candidate, there would not be any problem.
“Obi has done so well in Anambra State, not because he is in APGA, but because he had no godfather to take orders from. The PDP should be looking out for a candidate bereft of a godfather for the 2014 election in Anambra.
“I am not even talking about APGA anymore. My concern is that we should not let other parties take us by surprise. In APGA, there is no more a system, there is no succession plan and there is no structure. For all I care, APGA is only marking time. As soon as my friend, Obi leaves in less than 18 months from now, that would be the end of the party.”
