Ogbaru (Anambra) – Mr Arinzechukwu Awogu, the 2019 Campaign Coordinator of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Anambra, has expressed optimism that the party will win all the legislative seats in Ogbaru State and Federal Constituencies in the upcoming general elections.
Speaking at a rally in Atani, the headquarters of Ogbaru Local Government Area of the state, Awogu said that the party would deliver all its candidates for the state and National Assemblies polls in the area.
He charged the teeming party supporters at the rally to use the APGA’s popularity in the state to win massively for the candidates in the elections.
He said that no other political party in the state would pose a threat to APGA’s impending landslide victory.
Awogu, who is the Ogbaru council chairman, said: “It is a show of popularity and an appeal on the ever abiding faith of the people in the party to remain with the party.
“APGA candidates are the most reliable and should be voted for. We have realised that doing well as executive head does not often translate to doing well as a lawmaker.
“We have people that can be heard in the lawmaking chambers.
“Chinwe Nwebili will give Ogbaru Federal Constituency unassailable representation at the green chamber, having excelled as Speaker of Anambra House of Assembly.
“As far as Ogbaru is concerned, Franklin Nwadialor is equipped with the resume to take Ogbaru Constituency 11 to the next level.
Awogu further called on the electorate to support Celestine Umeh, the candidate for Ogbaru Constituency 1, saying that he would give quality representation to the constituency.
“He was a former councillor and grassroots politician who understands where it pinches the people of Okpoko. We are blessed to have him as our candidate,” he said.
Also, Chief Afam Odogwu, a major stakeholder in the area, said that delivering all the APGA candidates was one of the ways to pay back Gov. Willie Obiano for his good work.
Odogwu, who called on Obiano to pay more attention to the development of Ogbaru, urged APGA supporters to work for the success of the party in the elections.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the APGA candidates included aru Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives and Chief Chinedu Emeka for Anambra North Senatorial District.
