The plan by the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), to transform from regional to a national party, may become a reality come 2019. This may be made certain if the words of the chairman of the party, Victor Oye are anything to go by. said on Monday in Owerri that his leadership projection was to transform the party to a national party in 2019.
Oye said during a stakeholders’ summit organised by the Imo State chapter of the party on Monday that APGA was working tirelessly to capture the governorship positions of the other South-East states of Imo, Abia, Enugu and Ebonyi and many other states across the country.
He noted that inspite of the economic recession in the country, the people of Anambra state being governed by APGA were not feeling the impact of the bad economy.
“In Anambra State, workers are paid their salaries in full and with 15 per cent upward review; the Gross Domestic Product of the state is the highest and in agriculture, Anambra is blazing the trail.
“In this 2016 Christmas, every worker in Anambra will, in addition to his/her salary, go home with a 50kg bag of rice produced in the state and by 2017, Anambra will join the league of net exporters of rice.’’
Oye also spoke on the achievements of the APGA Executive Chairman in Gwagwalada Area Council of the FCT, adding that APGA manifesto was what Nigeria needed to develop.
He, however, charged the party members to be united and always support the activities and programmes of the party.
Oye said that the summit would be extended to other states to sensitise and educate the masses on the exploits of the party.
In a goodwill message, Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra appealed to APGA members to shun acts capable of causing friction in the party, noting that APGA required love and unity to progress. He urged the people of South-East to key into APGA vision to overcome economic recession.
