ABUJA – The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) for the Anambra state election scheduled for November 6, Honourable Chukwuma Umeoji, has described the declaration of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) affirming him and Professor Lillian Orogbu as deputy, as a victory for all APGA members.
Adding that the will of thousands of APGA faithful have prevailed and an end to all litigations, Umeoji, in a statement, extended a hand of fellowship to the like of Charles Soludo and others for the sake of the party.
“With the publication by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) affirming myself, Hon. Chukwuma Umeoji and Professor Lillian Orogbu as both governorship and deputy governorship candidates of our great party for the November gubernatorial election, I wish to announce that the will of thousands of APGA faithful have prevailed and an end to all litigations,” he said.
Saluting the courage, strength and resilience of the acting National Chairman, High Chief Jude Okeke and the entire Caretaker Committee of APGA, Umeoji thanked the governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano and also congratulated every member of APGA from national to the ward level.
He said: “This is true, a victory for APGA, victory for ndị Anambra, victory for the younger generation and those unborn, a victory that we all have been yearning for.
“We have by this declaration of INEC, reaffirmed our unity of purpose; the ‘can do it’ spirit, reiterated our faith in democracy; and fully returned power back to the people.
“For me, there is NO VICTOR and NO VANQUISHED, rather a victory to all members of APGA and entire Anambra electorates, who are already waiting to re-elect APGA for another milestone in the governance of the state come November (6) Six.
“In this context, I wish to declare that the victory is for us all and for the sustenance of our unique internal democracy and party.
“It was a full display of the APGA creed, Onye Aghana Nwanne ya; we must now come together to be our brothers and sisters keeper and protect the legacy of our founding fathers and supreme leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu.
“I extend the hand of fellowship to my brothers and sisters who contested the election and joined the marathon litigation; this is our project and we must come together for the interest of APGA first.
“The Journey ahead is daunting, but surmountable if we all pull our strength together and unite for a common purpose. I assure us, APGA will win overwhelmingly.
“There’s no family without rancour, I believe we will come out stronger, better and energised to conquer and return APGA to Agụ-Awka.
“We will move fast to reconcile all factions of the party and aggrieved members, even those who have in time past, joined our opponents, we will make sure they come back home; APGA is home and big enough to accommodate everyone.”
