“An that no political party whatsoever has the power to conduct a new primary with the intention of nominating a new candidate because the time for doing that has elapsed, anything in contrary will not accepted by APGA, and made this position explicitly clear at the meeting we held with the National chairman of INEC in Abuja two days ago, that APGA will never accept anything in the contrary and we are determined to do everything possible to restore normalcy , orderliness     and dignity back to Anambra politics”.
Speaking further: “The time for politics of greed, avarice, politics of brother does not know brother; sister does not know sister has passed in ANmbara state”.
“With the enthronement of the new democracy we today enjoy, Anambra sate is positioned to take the lead in Nigeria politic life, by 2019, looking at what the Governor of Anambra state Chief Willie Obiano  has done, APGA will be better positioned, with the Abia victory in waiting, APGA will be strongly positioned to compete with APC in 2019, by 2019 , PDP funeral would have been held”.
