Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano has brushed aside speculations that he could mount a run for Aso Rock come 2019.

"I have no intention of running for President. My immediate focus is to continue working for ndi Anambra while expanding the frontiers of APGA starting with a convincing victory in the January 13, 2018, Senatorial Election, to taking over all South East States and beyond by 2017”

The governor  spoke at a rally to celebrate his reelection and to campaign for the party’s candidate, Victor Umeh, for the Anambra Central Senatorial District rerun election scheduled for January 13.

Obiano described  APGA as a hurricane saying "what happened here on November 18 when APGA swept the entire poll in Anambra State will be replicated in Imo, Abia, Enugu, and Ebonyi states in 2019."

Obiano added: “APGA is a hurricane that nobody can stop in the South-east. What I am telling my brother governors in the South-east is for them to join APGA now if they wish to be re-elected; otherwise, sorry for them, they must lose their seats to APGA in 2019."
