The Governor of Anambra State, Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo has enjoined members of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Abia State Chapter, particularly those who contested at the gubernatorial primary election, to embrace the spirit of sportsmanship, to ensure that the party produces the next Governor come 2023.
Prof. Soludo, while congratulating Prof. Greg Ibe, the party’s flag bearer in the state on his resounding victory at the primary election, implored the former’s opponents to join forces with him to ensure the party’s victory at the general elections.
The Governor spoke when he received a delegation led by Prof. Ibe on a courtesy visit to him in Anambra Governor’s lodge, Awka, as he commended the tranquility as witnessed in Abia state APGA gubernatorial primary election, noting that the successful outcome is indicative of the people’s desire and hunger for change.
Governor Soludo who described Prof Ibe as a world class technocrat and intellectual entrepreneur of repute, maintained that “Abia desperately needs him to transform the state”, he said, as he pledged to bring his many years field experience to bear on the campaign train at the right time.
“I want to plead with the entire members of APGA in Abia state, especially those who contested for the position of governor with Prof Ibe during the primary election, to join forces with him in order to secure victory for the party at the general elections. And I want to promise you that I will bring his many years of field experience to bear on the campaign train at the right time.”
According to Governor Soludo, APGA is the only political party in Nigeria that enshrined the concept of restructuring in her constitution and therefore remains the best platform to champion the much needed transformation of the entire nation.
He therefore enjoined leadership of the party to initiate strategic alliances and robust engagements with other like minded individuals, groups and organizations in order to reposition her and indeed the South East for greater participation in the act of national governance.
Prof Ibe had earlier informed his host that he came to formally congratulate him on his assumption of office as Governor of Anambra state and subsequently identify with his administration.
He was accompanied on the visit by the Abia state Chairman of APGA, Rev Augustine Ehiemere, some members of the party’s State Working Committee, Prince Emeka Okafor, Director-General of his campaign organization and some directors.
