THE All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) youth leaders in the 326 political wards in Anambra State have been advised to avoid negative acts that are capable of creating room for hoodlums to hijack the governorship seat of the state during the November six election in the state.
An aspirant to the November six governorship election under the platform of APGA, Chief Chukwuma Umeoji, gave the advice while addressing the youth leaders in a meeting held in his campaign house, opposite the State Government House, Awka.
He thanked the leadership of the party for their collective dogged determination to ensure the continual existence of APGA as a national party in the country and challenged the youths to guide at all cost any form of obnoxious act that would engender disintegration of the party in the state through propaganda.
Chief Umeoji, who told the youths that they have the ability to decide the next governor of the state, also urged them to be vigilante at the polls by forming a formidable force at the ward level so that their position and entitlements should not be tampered with by the over desperate power hungry politicians in their respective wards during the election to the detriment of APGA and the state.
Chief Umeoji further called on all the aspirants to the governorship race to see the election as a family affair with a view to reducing tension in the party and the state at large.
The aspirant, who noted that Governor Willie Obiano had done extremely well in all facets of the state economy, added that it was when Obiano came on board that remarkable things started happening in the state, describing the Anambra International Cargo and Passengers Airport as one of the monumental legacy projects of the APGA led government.
Speaking further, he expressed belief that if the election, both the primary and that of the November six, go on well without prejudice, the aspirations of the founding fathers of APGA would come to fruition within next eight years as the party would be extending its tentacles to other states in the South East and beyond.
In his remarks, the state APGA Youth Leader, Comrade Eziokwu Magnus Eziokwu, stated that with Chief Umeoji as the next governor of the state, the future of the state as well as that of APGA is assured and challenged the participants to working towards liberating themselves from the shackles of poverty and enslavement by ensuring that they cast their votes not only wisely, but also according to their conscience.
