‘APGA will emerge stronger from current crisis’

14 August 2012, 14:26

Abia -   Reagan Ufomba, All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship candidate in the 2011 general elections in Abia, has said that the party would emerge stronger from its current leadership crisis.

Members of the party were defecting enmasse to other political parties.

``What is happening to our party is a good omen because things must get worse before they get better, APGA must be run as a political party and not a private company,” he said.

Ufomba appealed to members of the party not to be deterred by the developments in the party, noting that APGA was being strengthened for greater challenges.

He said that the party was poised to consolidate its claim in the South east.

According to him, chieftains of the party which includes a serving governor are already working round the clock to ensure victory for the party in next elections.

Ufomba said that the defection of some APGA members in the state to Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) was not an end to the existence of the party.

``Most people masquerading as APGA members are because they found open spaces to contest elections in 2011 under the party’s platform.

``They have gone back to where they came from and this will not be a problem to us because it only shows that they are not principled men,” he said.

He said that the party was re-strategising to claim Abia Government House come 2015.

``We appeal to residents of the state to keep fate with us and not to be anxious with recent developments.’’

NAN recalls that Pedro Madukwe, an APGA Senatorial aspirant in the 2011 National Assembly elections defected to the ACN with his supporters.
