Leaders and members of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in in Abia state, led by its chairman, Chief Nkem Okoro, who decamped to the All Progressive Congress (APC) have promised to join forces with the Abia APC chapter to rescue the state from bad governance.
This is as APC in Abia State has continued to record tremendous entry of new membership from the ruling party and other political parties in the state.
Okoro while speaking on behalf of others at the APC state secretariat in Umuahia on Tuesday, said they came to complete what can be described as a tsunami of political realignment with the APC which he said end their political journey in APGA.
He pointed out their decision was taken after wide consultations with APGA supporters and leaders at all levels, who agreed that the APC represents a progressives platform with the ideals and vision required to end misgovernance in Abia.
He said, “Our decision to join the APC became more cogent and expedient, after the leader of the party in Abia state and a respected Abia son, Dr. Alex Otti joined the party with thousands of APGA supporters recently.
“Today, we have trooped out here with the progressive zeal, passion and commitment to wholeheartedly join the APC with the desire to selflessly support the vision of the party aimed at ensuring that the Abia of our collective dream is achieved.
“As leaders of APGA at all levels, we showed hard work and commitment devoid of compromise in leading our party men and women, therefore today, we want to assure you that, we shall deploy same virtues of commitment and sincerity as APC members to passionately work for the growth and expansion of the Abia APC at all levels.
“What we are doing here today marks the end of our journey in APGA, thus we are joining the Abia APC with our spirits and souls, and with the determination to make people oriented sacrifices aimed at taking the APC to an enviable height.
“Present here with me today are, members of the State Working Committee, the 17 L.G.A Chairmen and the ward Chairmen of the 184 wards of the state, as well as former state and L.G.A officers of the party.
“Due to the Covid-19 challenges, coupled with the large number of APGA members willing to be part of today’s event, we directed our L.G.A Executives, Ward Executives and other members to carry out their declarations at their various wards, so that this place wouldn’t experience any form of Covid-19 breaches and possible stampede.
“We know that the constitution and ideologies of the APC attach so much priority to discipline, loyalty and supremacy of the party over every individual, therefore we are excited because our track record of commitment, discipline and loyalty would make it easier for us to quickly integrate and be part of the big APC family,” he said.
Receiving the new members to the party, the Abia APC chairman, Chief Donatus Nwankpa, said the APC was ready to receive as many people as were ready to join the party, as democracy is a game of numbers.
Nwankpa who urged old members of the party to see the new members as partners in progress and not as rivals said any association that undermids the authority of the party will not be treated with levity.
He assured a level playground to all and sundry, adding that the party was ready to end the chain of misgovernance in the state.
He pointed out that the party in state was interested in working other progressive minds in the state to ensure the repositioning of state.
