Obiokoye emerges APGA chairman in Anambra



Mr. Ifeatu Obiokoye has emerged as the Anambra State Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance.

Obiokoye emerged after being unanimously elected to the position during the party’s 2023 State Congress held at the Dora Akunyili Women Development Centre, Awka, on Tuesday.

The Anambra State Governor and National Leader of APGA, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, observed the congress for newly-elected officers of the party.

Other officers that emerged alongside Obiokoye include the state Deputy Chairman, Mr. Paul Uzor, state Vice Chairman South, Surplus Ezewuzie, state Vice Chairman North, Odinaka Azubuike Ozoechina, state Vice Chairman Central, Chief Nduka Ubi Okoye, State Secretary, Levi Obiadu, Asst. State Secretary, Ekene Nnadinma, State Treasurer, Mrs. Veronica Uche Nweke, State Asst. Treasurer, Mr. Uche Maduekwe, among others.

The newly-elected officers all pledged to devote all of their time, skills, and resources to serving the party, shortly after the administration of the oath of office on them.

Soludo thanked the party’s outgoing National Chairman, Chief Victor Oye, and Anambra State APGA Chairman, Sir Nobert Obi, for steering the party safely to its present height as the third largest party in the country

He emphasised that no faction exists in the party and that APGA has remained strong under their leadership, pointing out that their unwavering commitment to the party has tremendously helped to position it as a force to reckon with in the country.

The governor added that APGA remained firm despite a huge wind that blew in the recent general elections.

He said, “Some of you have paid your dues in APGA, the first party with progressives in its name, which will lead Nigeria to the promised land.

“We are inviting other progressives to join the grand alliance because true leadership requires all progressives to work together.

“Those who left are now in transit. We’ll open our hands wide to welcome them back to the party when the wind blows.

“You will go into the political wilderness if you leave APGA the way some people did.

“All progressives call APGA home. I congratulate all 326 wards represented here today, as well as all statutory members, on the successful ward and LGA congresses. They were democratic, and the people’s voice was heard.

“I congratulate you all on being successful delegates from each ward and unanimously choosing the personality to lead you.

“On Wednesday next week, the national convention will hold and a new leadership will be elected.

“We will be eternally grateful to everyone who has served and remained faithful to this party,” he said.

“Some call APGA a spirit, while others call it a movement. We refer to it as a progressive movement.

“I commend all aspirants who ran and did not win but remained true to the ideals of the party. APGA is Anambra, and Anambra is APGA.

“Anambra will continue to grow from strength to strength under APGA! I also want to congratulate you all on your tremendous success in the recent election, particularly in the Anambra House of Assembly. There was a huge wind that blew, but APGA remains firm.”

In his vote of thanks, the newly elected state Chairman of the party, Obiokoye pledged his commitment to discharge his duties effectively and ensure the party remains in harmony, growing from strength to strength.

The state congress was observed and witnessed by officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission. The officials were led by the HOD, Mr. Emmanuel Isong, Nkiru Gibson, Ajunwa Kingsley, and Nonso Okolo.
