Anambra State Governor, Professor Chukwuma Soludo, is now the National Leader of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
Soludo who is the third in the line of succession was on Friday during elected a meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party in Awka, the Anambra State capital, through a unanimous voice vote.
In his remarks, the APGA National Leader accepted the recognition as an honour and privilege, saying he feels the weight of history, including that of the nation’s forbears who lived their lives as progressives.

According to him, APGA is the first political party registered with the name ‘progressives’ and has become the home of progressives.
He paid glowing tributes to his predecessors, the late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu and former Governor Willie Obiano.
Soludo pledged to work actively with all APGA faithful and to extend an invitation to all true progressives to converge on APGA as their home to enable it to grow for true progressive leadership in Nigeria at the right time.
The Eastern Updates recalls that Governor Soludo had last week asserted that the country needs leaders who truly believe in the country as Nigerians head to the polls next month.
Soludo, who pointed out that the upcoming election was not a do-or-die affair, assured that the Ndigbo were an itinerant people who could not afford to be an intolerant tribe.
The governor made these assertions and more when the presidential candidate of the New National Peoples Party, Alhaji Rabiu Kwankwaso, paid him a courtesy visit at the Governor’s Lodge, Amawbia, Anambra State.
