Anambra State Governor Chukwuma Soludo will personally lead the of All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship poll campaigns in Abia State.
Soludo made the promise on Saturday when the APGA governorship candidate in Abia, Prof Gregory Ibe, visited him at Anambra Government House.
Commending the virtues of Ibe, Soludo described him as a great achiever and true son of Abia and Ndigbo, stating that “Prof. Greg’s personal contributions to the development of Society is deserving of commendation. I am certain Abia desperately needs a Greg Ibe. We shall be in Abia to lead the charge when the time comes,” Soludo stated.
Soludo said the time had come for the South East to embrace APGA for integration purposes.
According to him, it is time for Ndi Igbo to calibrate their approach because election will only be won by forming methodical, systematic, concrete networks and alliances.
The Governor asked some South Easterners who are dissipating into other platforms to come back under APGA to expand the frontiers of development.
He said that the bulk votes in the country are in the South West and North West, and not elsewhere.
Soludo welcomed Ibe into APGA and described the party as a movement and the third force, from where projection into the National will be done.
He called on all qualified persons who contested the primary election in Abia state to demonstrate the spirit of sportsmanship and join hands to salvage the state.
Earlier in his remark, Ibe stated thanked his host and said he came to formally congratulate him on his assumption of office as Governor of Anambra and subsequently identify with his administration.
Ibe also stated that he had worked at different levels in the country and beyond, noting that his investment and contribution to Abia under his former political party wasn’t appreciated until he was eventually called back to serve on the APGA platform.
He expressed optimism that APGA would start to take over reins in the country, beginning from the South East zone.
