APGA strategises to win elections in northern states

04 February 2014, 09:47

Dutse - The All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) on Monday said it had started to work on strategies to win elections in Northern states.

This is contained in a communiqué read to newsmen by Steve Emel, the FCT Chairman of APGA at the end of the northern states APGA Chairmen Forum in Dutse.

"The forum has resolved on modalities and strategies for APGA as a national party to win elections in the northern states of Nigeria.

"The forum used this opportunity to call on all Nigerians, irrespective of tribe or religion, to join and vote for APGA in the 2015 general election,’’ he said.

Emel said that the forum was in support of the forthcoming national convention as proposed and adopted by the party's National Executive Council meeting on January 18, in Awka.

He said that the forum also reaffirmed its confidence in the leadership of the party under Victor Umeh and Sani Shinkafi as the National Secretary.

Emel said that the forum appreciated the recognition given to political parties by the Federal Government to participate in the forthcoming national conference.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the chairmen of 18 northern states attended the meeting, except that of Nasarawa, who was unavoidably absent.
