He said that APGA remained the only party with sincere interest of the  Igbos at heart, adding that Obi had used his mandate to enrich the lives of Anambra people.

Also, addressing the crowd, Chief Emeka Ojukwu (Jnr), said the party was united and determined to uphold the legacies of the late national leader of the party, Dim Chukwuemeka Odimegu Ojukwu.
