APGA Delegates’ votes ‘ll either lift or sink the party’s fortune in Old Nnewi, Ihiala blocks
- As YPP waits on the sideline for them to slip
For those who truly love APGA, the rescheduled Anambra South senatorial primary election which holds at Late Dora Akunyili Women Development Center today calls for both circumspection and vigilance.
This is because, apart from the fact that YPP is already waiting in the wings in OLD NNEWI and IHIALA zones, following the emergence of some popular cum strong politicians [who could not make it in either PDP or APGA] as her candidates for 2023 NASS and State House of Assembly elections in the two zones, a slip today on the part of delegates would greatly diminish the fortunes of our great party, APGA in the two zones; of course to the advantage of emerging ALTERNATIVE political parties, among which are YPP and Labour parties.
With the incumbent, Sen. Ifeanyi Ubah being of the rival YPP and coming from NNEWI town in Old Nnewi Zone which, going by previous elections, always casts the highest number of votes in NASS elections in the South Zone, APGA Delegates have only ONE option to embrace at today’s primary, if the intention is to win and take over the senate seat from the incumbent YPP Senator.
And sentiments apart, Hon., Engr. Chris Emeka Azubogu represents that singular option in the circumstances that Old Nnewi and Ihiala zones find themselves presently.
Among the four eminently qualified contestants for the party’s ticket, namely: Chris Azubogu, Emma Nwachukwu, Ben Nwankwo and Akachukwu Nwankpo, only #AZUBOGU has a background and retinue of accomplishments that DWARFS that of the incumbent YPP Senator and will therefore guarantee APGA an elaborate WIN against him in the main election on February 25, 2023, being [like the incumbent] an Nnewi indigene too and thus the only one among the four with capacity to split and win majority of Nnewi urban votes on account of his good works in the town and federal constituency at large.
Embracing or going for any other aspirant among the lot will spell doom for our great party, APGA in Old Nnewi and Ihiala zones. The risk is too costly to even imagine, as doing so will diminish the chances of APGA’s House of Reps and House of Assembly candidates in the face of strong opposition from YPP, PDP and Labour party on which platform HE, Peter Obi will be running for President.
In the light of all the above, Delegates are passionately urged to put aside all other considerations and vote to save and ensure the continued thriving of APGA in Old Nnewi and Ihiala zones by queuing behind #MrProject, Chris Emeka Azubogu who, even as a Rep, has shown immense capacity by attracting very tangible projects to all 7 LGAs in Anambra South, including roads, bridges, etc.
The direct implication is that choosing AZUBOGU over the others today will make the subsequent campaign a pleasant and easy experience for our party men and women, especially in the prevailing circumstances where candidates’ background and accomplishments [as they minister to politics and governance] may play greater roles than field campaign.
Thanks for your time and consideration. Let’s go out there and lay a solid foundation for the emergence of APGA’s first Senator in Anambra South
Five times [between 2003 and 2019] have we fritted the opportunities. This one must not pass us bye. It is not only about Azubogu, it is more about sustaining our collective interests.🙏🙏🙏
Good morning esteemed Delegates as we proceed to get it right!
