The National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Dr. Victor Ike Oye has called on those aiming to replace Chief Willie Obiano as governor of Anambra State next year to forgo the idea as it would amount to waste of time and efforts on their part if they insisted.
He made the statement while addressing well wishers gathered at his country home at Amawbia, near Awka at the weekend to felicitate with him over the conferment of Ozo title on him.
The National Chairman noted that with the zeal exhibited by the governor in governance in the state which has hitherto culminated into visible development around the state, Anambrarians will have no choice than to return him in “a smooth sail.”
“Through the achievements of the Obiano administration, members of APGA now hold their head high because they have a performer as governor.
“In 2017, we will demonstrate to others that APGA is now fully grown. No Igbo man has any reason not to identify with APGA, which has now become a widely accepted political party.
“I want to call on all our brothers to come out and identify with our party. As election beckons next year, we have to join hands together to show that we are truly the owners of this state. Of course, 2017 will be a walkover for Obiano,” Oye said.
The APGA National Chairman also said that the in the spirit of growth, he has launched the United Kingdom chapter of APGA adding that most of the Nigerians and Anambrarians in that country are currently APGA card carrying members.
Earlier in his speech, the governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano had thanked the people of the state for the support he has received so far saying that it has enabled him to perform and also make the state one of the safest in the country.
He promised to continue working hard in order to earn the trust of the people of the state, and also deliver on the promises made to them during the 2013 electioneering campaign.
