Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State on Tuesday assured that the recent in-roads and victories recorded by the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, during the recently concluded general elections would be sustained even as he said the development has positioned the party as the next opposition party in Nigeria.
Obiano made the remark when House of Representatives members-elect from the state and Taraba State paid him a courtesy call at the Governor’s Lodge, Amawbia.
Introducing the victorious members to the governor, the National Chairman of APGA, Chief Victor Umeh, also announced the victory of APGA House of Assembly candidates in Taraba and Bayelsa states.
Mr. Umeh introduced the House of Reps-elect to the governor, beginning with the candidate from Taraba State, Mr. Isaac Usman Danjuma, who won Wukari/Ibi Federal Constituency.
Also receiving congratulations from the governor were Gabriel Onyenwife and Peter Mmadubueze, members elect from Oyi/Ayamelum and Anambra East and West Federal Constituencies respectively.
The national chairman assured Mr. Obiano of victory in the upcoming Abia State supplementary election next Saturday.
The members elect, in their separate remarks, made reassuring speeches of ensuring good representation to the people when sittings begin.
