‘APGA ‘ll win more states’
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Victor Umeh has charged members to gird their loins, saying the party will win more states in the next general elections.
He said efforts aimed at repositioning the party for the impending elections in 2015 would be intensified.
Umeh spoke in Abuja at a ceremony marking the inauguration of the 21-member Caretaker Committee for Imo State by the party’s National Working Committee (NWC).
The APGA Chairman said: “We are working hard to make sure that we take back our mandate in Imo State. Do not allow your personal interest to hinder the job you need to do. You are to work for the party and not for any individual.
“The leadership of the party is working hard to win more state in the 2015 and we are not leaving any stone unturned. Open doors to everybody who want to join the party for progress. There are many people who were disappointed and want to join; please embrace them. If we do not win elections, the party will die and we do not want that to happen.
“Following the dissolution of the Caretaker Committee of our party in Imo State by the National Working Committee at its meeting at the National secretariat on June 24, 2014, the NWC at its meeting of July 11, 2014 reconstituted and approved the following membership of the Caretaker Committee in Imo State, pending the conduct of the next state congress.”
