The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Anambra State Chapter has begun to fashion out strategies to reposition the party ahead of future elections in addition to reconciliation of aggrieved party members in the State.
This move was discloed when the Anambra State Chairman of the party, Chief Ifeatu Obi-Okoye inaugurated and swore in new Nnewi North Council Area party executive members at the conference hall of the Council, home town of late APGA national leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu.
While calling on party members for a total commitment to party affairs, Chief Obi-Okoye said that the State was in urgent need for all genuine membership to build a better party for all.
He said that all party members were involved in strengthening the party to an enviable position with the responsibility to make APGA a truly progressive party where democracy would be sustained.
The Chairman told them that priority should be given to justice and equity so that everyone’s goals and aspirations could be fulfilled in relative peace and equity. He assured them that there would be justice and fair play for all and urged the members to remain focused to enable the party achieve its objectives.
He urged the newly inaugurated party officials to put APGA and the State first, adding that they should work together to achieve maximum results in Nnewi North.
“We are reorganizing, reengineering and repositioning the party for victory. We don’t want any story about another political party in Nnewi. APGA is now in charge and other political parties would be retired in Nnewi. We are ready in any way they want it, we are prepared. We must be ready.
“But getting ready there are things we must change. We must change our mindset. One of the things that hinder the APGA’s progress is the attitude of our members. APGA is not a normal political party, APGA is a movement, “he said.
