APGA mobilises membership in Anambra

07 March 2014, 10:05

Awka-  The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Anambra will commence a comprehensive restructuring, rebuilding and re-organisation to secure more elective seats in the 2015 general elections.

Shedrack  Anakwue, a factional state chairman of the party, told newsmen in Awka on Thursday that plans had been made to reconcile aggrieved members who left the party to achieve the purpose.

He said it was Governor Peter Obi's untiring efforts that kept the party afloat till date, pointing out that it would have gone extinct.

Anakwue said the party had never been two, both in definition and operation, but had always operated as a family under the leadership of Late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, assisted by the governor.

He urged the executive officers of the party elected in the April 4, 2013 wards, councils and state congresses to commence the process of re-organising and rebuilding the party for effective participation in the forthcoming general elections.

"As we are aware, the 2015 elections are around the corner and all of us should work assiduously to conquer the state and achieve resounding victories.

"These include the three senatorial seats, eleven House of Representatives seats and the entire 30 seats in the state assembly," he said.

"Anakwue said the party’s National Chairman, Maxi Okwu, had approved the programmes for landslide victory in future elections in the state. .

He urged its members to work as a team to record resounding victory in 2015.
