Ahead of next year’s general elections, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) yesterday released its Presidential Campaign Council list which will be headed by Anambra State Governor and leader of the party, Chukwuma Soludo.
This announcement was contained in a release jointly signed by the party’s National Chairman, Dr. Victor Oye, and National Organizing Secretary, Ifeanyi Mbaeri.
The 1,573-man committee has Abubakar Adamu as the Director General of the Campaign Council while Damian Okolo was named Deputy Director General (Contacts) of the council.
Other prominent members include the Governor of Anambra State, Prof Charles Soludo, Deputy Governor, Dr. Gilbert Onyekachukwu; National Chairman of the party, Chief Victor Oye; APGA Presidential candidate, Justice Peter Umeadi as well as the Vice Presidential candidate, Comrade Mohammed Koli.
Others include former governor of Anambra state, Willie Obiano and Virgy Etiaba, also a one-time governor of the South-Eastern state as well as commissioners serving in the Governor Soludo-led government.
In another report, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has expressed profound gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari for delivering the Second Niger Bridge as he promised.
Ohanaeze particularly appreciated Buhari’s commitment in completing the project which was initiated by the previous administration.
‘Surely, President Buhari did not start the work on the bridge, but in a maladjusted society where the abandoned projects far outnumber the completed ones, to deliver a vital infrastructure that should have been taken for granted attracts immense jubilation amongst the Igbo’, Ohanaeze said.
The apex Igbo body in a press statement by its National Publicity Secretary Dr. Alex Ogbonnia, described the Second Niger Bridge is a key national infrastructure, with immense socio-economic benefits not only for the contiguous states but for the entire nation.
